  • Sunday drive in Caprarola. Palazzo Farnese, impressive at the end of the long and steep country Highway, is beautiful. Welcomes people with a double staircase in semi circle, and later offers two circular planes, overlooking a spacious inner courtyard. The two floors are made up of several frescoed rooms, among them contiguous. I remember the rooms Sala del Mappamondo, with the evocative representation of geographical knowledge of the time. A beautiful and worth visiting. Pity that the garden of the Palace was closed to visitors because of the scarcity of staff. A typical Italian ugliness.

  • In this small locality of Lazio, in Viterbo, the Farnese Palace dominates the square surrounding the Valley. Its rooms-some with small renovations but well preserved-... the "Staircase" that combines the 4 floors (only 2 visitors) are an artistic heritage not far from suffocating tourism of "known" Capitoline sites (30 km) worth of visiting. We recommend the weekdays because with the opening of the Park and secret gardens, the Palace became a 360° ... a gem!!!
