  • It is building on a river, on the Trastevere side. Raffaello Raffaello is famous, Museum of fine arts, is more faded? Such is the Kanji. Cutting corners or State of preservation is bad, not completed or what. Still, Raphael, a grace is felt. Raphael in addition to many attractions.

  • 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.
