If you're going here it's going to be a long history lesson. The tour guide we had through our school trip could talk a dog off a meat wagon and we spend way too long here. Get in and get out unless you love the...More
A must see if you are near Viterbo, Italy. Originally designed as a fortress and later built to be a country villa. The villa, and the gardens are designed in the Italian Renaissance period style. The frescoes in the villa are colorful and add great...More
It’s a hidden gem, beautiful place and something you don’t expect to find in such a small city.
Only negative thing: the staff is terrible and giving wrong one information at the ticket office. We wanted to visit the gardens (that is one of the...More
We were driving from Orvieto to Rome and Palazzo or Villa Farnese in Caprarola was a nice stop. Its a huge palazzo at the very top of a dead straight road up through an old village. We were one of only 2 other couples there...More
You cannot immagine what you have missed so far. The Palace is one of the best conserved in Italy (so in the world). The Farnese's is among the most ancient families in Italy and they have built palaces and castles all over the lands they...More
The first thing you notice is that the town, Caprarola, is charming. Then you see that parking is not an issue. Then, wow, the Villa Farnese sits majestically over the town and the entire valley like the gem it is. Inside is more amazing art...More
First of all, I would forget about the direct view of the villa and look for some satellite views of the property. The property is awesome. The artwork amazing. It costs 5E. If you go make sure you explore the gardens and walk up into...More
Beautiful building with many highly decorated rooms open to view.
Lovely garden with interesting statues.

€5 entry fee is a bargain.
If you park on...More
If by any chance you are in the region of Lazio, or somewhere nearby, you should definitely visit Caparola and its Palazzo Farnese. It has a spiral staircase with frescoes painted on the top, and all around the rooms you can admire some more.

All of the smaller villages in the region have train services that includes Rome as its starting point. They are normally unmanned. Transport tickets when purchased usually gives you the option to use trains and local buses and metro travel for one price. This gives you access to a zone of travel and we found this a very inexpensive way to travel to and from Rome. Most tickets can also be purchased at the post office or tobacconist. A trip further afield would mean purchasing for a second or third zone..Hope this helps.
