  • Villa is located in the Trastevere district and was built in the early 16th century for Agostino Chigi, but later sold to the family Farnese. Architect of service was Peruzzi who believed that Interior and exterior had to be integrated. The villa is decorated inside lush with performances from Roman and Greek mythology. Frescoes of oa. Rafael and Sebastiano del Piombo. Check out walking around the House and in the garden.

  • Beautiful villa from the beginning of the 16TH century, with beautiful frescoes by Raphael, a beautiful place not to be missed, built for a banker, Agostino Chigi, was acquired by Cardinal Alejandro Farnesio, promoter of the Palace which is located on the other side of the Tiber.

  • My partner's surprise for Valentine's day. A medieval concert only, not to mention the guided tour of the estate chigi and frescoes of the school of Raphael. Not to be missed.

  • 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.
