Il palazzo è meraviglioso, stanze affrescate è stupenda scala a chiocciola. L'entrata da sul paese ma dietro si snoda un fantastico giardino con tanto di bosco. Il paese è molto morto non tanto adatto... more »The Palace is wonderful frescoed rooms are superb spiral staircase. The entrance to the village but behind runs a fantastic garden with lots of wood. The country is very dead not so suitable for tourists but the Palace is worth visiting!

La prima impressione non lascia ben sperare perché la facciata sembra quasi moderna...ma all'interno vi e un susseguirsi di meraviglie a cominciare dal cortile tondeggiante cui sono affacciate due pia... more »The first impression does not bode well because the façade seems almost moderna...ma inside and a succession of wonders, starting with the two-story courtyard round which salt overlook admirably painted, where the allegory reigns supreme, then after a spiral staircase, also painted in a masterly way will get you to the upper floors, where the halls are full of wonders until you reach the sala del mappamondo, where the wonder and curiosity in uncontrolled reaches heights see maps of continents then known reaches very high limits. Finally the gardens and the park up to the casina of pleasure with a series of fountains and statues each with a different meaning and where everything and mass for a purpose and to leave a message. A visit to dive into the story. A mini-refrigerator, lack of guidance, which would have allowed an easier interpretation of the marvels they contain.

Ferragosto a palazzo farnese con mia moglie. Era da un po' di tempo che volevamo visitarlo e per fortuna ci siamo riusciti, ha superato di gran lunga le nostre aspettative, una delle visite culturali ... more »Mid August in the farnese Palace with my wife. It was a while ago that we wanted to visit it and luckily we succeeded, far exceeded our expectations, one of the most beautiful cultural visits they can do in Italy. We chose the guided tour with Mrs Paola, 5 euros more per head on the ticket costs 5 euro's. There seemed so many prior to the visit, but after nearly two hours of stories and explanations, are the 5 euros each better spent, great driving. A building like that and a village like that (Caprarola) was in Tuscany, would the onslaught of tourists from around the world. DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THIS MAN and discover Caprarola and Villa Farnese.
