  • As a feature, the close link between the garden and the villa. The villa is famous for its frescoes inspired by the classical myths created by Peruzzi, Raphael, Sebastiano del Piombo and Sodom.

  • Not yet discovered by the large mass and thereby secretly even more beautiful: the villa Farnesina. With paintings by Rafael Del Piombo and a villa with excellent art work, plus an insight into the lifestyle of rich Romans from the Renaissance. Absolute must!

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.
