  • After years going to Rome without visiting it, you finally decided to go at the insistence of one of my friends who is Roman blooded. Located in side left of the River, area Trastevere, has a fresh of Rafael that you leave without talks. The receptionists are very friendly and do not hesitate to help with anything. Often goes unnoticed for us tourists, but without a doubt it is worth visiting it.

  • Only a few tourists visit the Villa Farnesina - therefore it is not overrun in contrast to many other attractions, is also worth a visit!

  • 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.
