  • Nice small villa which can be visited in about 30 minutes. Open from 9hoo to 14hoo. The entrance is a €6. We have an audioguide for €3. However I advise for those who make a long stay because even if she's pretty, this remains a secondary animation.

  • 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.
