  • Of course the Villa Borghese is more rich in masterpieces exposed but here the villa itself is adorned with perfect frescoes of Raphael and the Sodoma, whose beauty cut the breath. I'm going to Rome every year, but here I hallucinated before the aesthetic perfection of this place.

  • The place itself is lovely, Trastevere area at the foot of the Janiculum Hill surrounded by greenery, next to the beautiful Palazzo Corsini alla Lungara. Beautiful also the garden of the Villa Farnesina with a variety of beautiful citrus fruits of all kinds and species. The villa is just fantastic with its splendid frescoes of Raffaelo and beyond, truly excellent work of preservation. Worth a visit the place and not only the Villa

  • Representative building of the early 16th century, Roman suburban villa frescoed prototype according to the iconographic program refined from leading artists of the period: Raffaello and pupils, Sebastiano del Piombo, Peruzzi, Sodoma. It was quickly quoted and imitated. The stained glass windows were inserted to protect the precious frescoes but slightly altering the balance of the collection. It's a jewel off the mass tourism circuits because sheltered but beautiful and refined. It is hoped that remains so in order not to be overwhelmed by unmanageable numbers of visitors. It is located in front of the Corsini Gallery other relevant Museum little visited because they all flock to the usual haunts to make yourself a selfie in front of monuments icons

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
