  • The Villa is small, but very pretty and "airy", thanks to the large Windows! There are 3 rooms Raphael painted. The entrance fee is €6.

  • In this villa you can enjoy beautiful frescoes for a reasonable price, especially if you are between 18 and 26 years of age. If you have your mythological knowledge falls, each room is a feast for the eyes. Everywhere you will recognize something. Highly recommended for the (hobby) Classicist

  • Beautiful villa in the heart of Rome. Magnificent garden with citrus. Interior ceiling frescoed by Raphael's vaults and Immense Genius, to embarrass the Sistine Chapel. A miracle of beauty and beauty

  • Villa Farnesina was interesting and beautiful to look at. Would recommend the audioguide, as it gave more information about frescoes and other paintings and their significance.
  • Amazing! The paintings are beautiful! It is a must see.
  • A beautiful villa with a stunning loggia. Helps to take a tour as there is a lot of interesting history about the owners.
  • A little Renaissance country villa with spectacular frescos, and a reasonable price (tailored to the number of rooms). Still, the loggia alone is worth the price. Wonderful.
  • Beautiful frescos and garden with orange and lemon trees. Open on Mondays when other museums are closed. Small number of rooms open but well worth a deteur away from the crowds.
