Rome is filled with tourists everywhere, particularly in summer. But Villa Farnesina was borderline empty when we visited. Local friends informed me that this is quite often the case. It houses in my opinion some of the most beautiful affreschi in Rome and the botanical...More

We stumbled across the Villa Farnesina while walking through Trastevere on our way to St Peter's, early in the morning. We got back in time for the weekly English guided tour (Saturday mornings) and were very glad we did. The tour began in the gardens...More

This attraction is not crowded at all which gives one the chance to take in all the great artwork that is present. This villa has art as a part of its decor rather than as an addition. Raphael's rooms are obviously the highlight, but I...More

The first surprise was how beautiful the neighborhood is, take your time to explore it. The Villa is amazing. Great frescoes from Rafael and Il Sodoma, some of which have religious graffitti from 5 centuries ago, blew me away. Don't miss the sexual frescoes in...More

This villa was built for the Chigi family and is across the river from the Palazzo Farnese (French embassy). It has frescoes by Raphael, Peruzzi and others. It's also right across the street from the Palazzo Corsini branch of the National Museum.

There's not a lot to the Villa Farnesina except for a lovely renaissance palazzo and gardens ... and the thing you are actually going there to see: the frescos by Raphaello Santi. No adjectives are enough to describe how stunning they are. To be honest,...More

A wonderful view of renaissance Rome in Raphael's and others' beautiful frescoes in formerly Agostino Chigi's house. Also pretty gardens (where an ancient Roman villa was also found during the big reinforcement of the Tiber) and part of the the old wall around the city...More

Villa Farnesina was commissioned by the Sienese banker to the pope, Agostino Chigi. This is a harmonious country villa on the banks of the Tiber. Designed by architect Baldassarre Peruzzi, it reflects the true Renaissance style of the early 16th century, however it's the interior...More

My wife and I have been to Rome about 10 times in the past 20 years but had never gone to the Villa Farnesina before. We will not miss it ever again. The palazzo building is stunning, and the Italianate garden is magnificent. Almost every...More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable

April 25th is an Italian Holiday but it seems that not all attractions treat it as such. The websites for the attractions will often read that it is closed on a holiday yet I am trying to find out if April 25th is treated as a holiday at this specific attraction. If anyone knows for sure, preferably those who manage the attraction, please let me know. Thanks.
