  • I came three times to be able to make the visit; the first time, the friendly young man at the reception informed me that it was only possible to do guided tours at certain specific times, the second time it was closed. Delighted to finally be able to do this guided tour the third time. However, it was a bit disappointing. The loggia was closed, some rooms under construction, a group after us forced the guide to shorten his explanations, the garden is a little wasteland, little to see, lack of general maintenance ... Somewhat understandable insofar as renovations and maintenance began in 2012, recently. Disappointing also to learn that little has remained as it is since the 17th century. On the other hand, the guide is fantastic, very interesting and cultivated! It was a beautiful moment, just a little expensive paid for what was seen...

  • The effort of climbing the trinth shaman spree of the mountains is rewarded by the visit of this beautiful Villa in Renaissance style. The guide was great and for an hour and a half he told us about the history and architecture of the academy. We would still be listening to her for another hour if it was possible. The visit includes the gardens, some outdoor rooms and only, unfortunately, 3 interior rooms. The view of all of Rome is unparalleled

  • The building is interesting, but the guide was extremely rude. Moreover they spend way too much time in the gardens explaining all kind of plain information which you will forget the second you walk out of there. Too bad it's the only option to visit the building. I would have paid more for an express tour instead of the 1,5 hours one.
  • Beautiful gardens and Renaissance and modern art.
  • Don't know what it is, all we saw were loads of Police!
  • Sublime mansion. The French tour is always more thorough than the other languages. Go on a sunny day for amazing views of the city.
  • The final feeling is that they have organized this visit to entice you to make the real visit. The Palace was closed and in front of the studiolo of Ferdinando de Medici who was a young lady who said that we should come back to see him. The gardens had the gates almost all cordoned off and to try to see what was inside you had to peek through The Hedge. Disappointing. Because you have the feeling that you have only lost time
