  • On Sunday, while walking in the Sun and enjoying the architectural wonders of the city, I found the protected by police and cordoned off piazza Farnese and I saw some civilians who, after being searched, came to the Palace. The reason for the deployment? The French Embassy was open for visits within the framework of the European heritage days. I then put in a line and entered through the vestibule, I climbed the ladder of honor until the Salon d'hercule, a powerful, 18 metres high (18) as well as Michelangelo drew it. The Salon is huge, bright, dry, elegant, Renaissance and one of the few artistic signs, in addition to the two precious 17th century tapestries, has, on the short side opposite the fireplace, a giant statue of the Farnese Hercules. From the living room you have access to the sala dei fasti, a, new, large apartment completely painted (mostly from 50 years of the 16th century Florentine Salviati). Among the images are that of Ranuccio the elder, paterfamilias of the new trend, and, before him, to Alessandro Farnese became Pope Paul III (the promoter of the Council of Trent). Here everything evokes glory and power according to the model, common to dominant families, of agiografare his own past, and here he works the Ambassador. It's really a big Office and enviable charm and visitors, usually very quiet, here are ideas for sarcastic comments and seek the complicity of some mild cleaner who indulge them. The main floor is then a succession of salons of great taste and, at some point, you reach the Carracci gallery that brings to mind the archetype who inspired the Sistine. The work, completed the first years of the seventeenth century and which shows the love of the gods, by itself, worth the visit so much is the sharpness and light. At the rear the garden is up to via Giulia. A living building and of notable interest, not too easy to visit on weekends since, as a rule, open in the afternoons on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

  • Unfortunately lack of explanation to understand and take advantage of the many works, it would have been very easy to make the visit in two languages

  • This is the Farnese Palace is located on Piazza Farnese. Is currently being used as the Embassy of France is not public, it seems, but is exposed in a limited time. It is a beautiful facade in a 3-storey building. France flag FLyin was taken for granted.

  • Open, gorgeous, quiet space.
  • Palazzo Farnese is a large, open, quiet space in the large city of Rome. There are a few restaurants here with usually a few people walking through. The scenery on sunny mornings and days, and warm summer evenings in this piazza feel spectacular. I would recommend anyone to visit this palazzo when in the city of Rome.
  • Stunning
  • Palace built by some of the most famous artists of Italy. The main hall has frescoes of Annibale Carraci that you leave impressed. Since it is an Embassy, the visit must be guided and must be booked in advance. As a curiosity say that not knowing Italian we paid the visit in this language and understood what the guide said.

  • 法涅塞市政廣場是一個很值得一去的地方,建議你們去玩一玩。羅馬有很多地方都很值得一去,但是因為我是住在朋友家,他家就正好在法涅塞市政廣場附近,所以我去這裏很方便,我只能說,太贊了,快去玩一玩吧。
