At only 5 Euros this private villa turned museum is a bargain. The frescos and the ceilings are gorgeous. The real splendor are in the surrounding grounds. Unfortunately some of the more magnificent cortili were blocked off. I first saw them from the eindows of...More

This is an amazing place. Beautiful frescos by the architect and Raphael amongst others. Not too crowded so you can buy a ticket on the day. Beautiful view on to the gardens. As good as the Sistine Chapel with less hassle.

Beautiful villa with frescoes, not on the main tourist track but well worth a visit. Situated near the Tiber within easy walking distance from central area

This small villa museum was a wonderful break from the crowds in Rome, just outside of Trastevere. It is a Renaissance era home with an interesting history, beautiful frescos throughout, interesting architecture and all quite beautifully preserved. As a break from the crowds of tourists...More

A gorgeous villa and beautiful frescoes - not crowded, entry fee is reasonable, and it doesn't take too long to visit. We got the audio guide, which I was hoping would provide some history about the villa itself, but it focussed almost exclusively on the...More

I arrived at 9 am, bought tickets for the palazzo and gardens, hired an audio guide and was enchanted. Two floors of wonderful frescos covering walls and ceilings. A beautiful garden but the main attraction is the art in the villa. All of this plus...More

We were escorted by our guide to this beautiful museum in the Trastevere area of Rome, and what a pleasant surprise, to see the wonderful murals of Raffaelo covering every wall and most of the ceilings. The building itself and its gardens are lovely, but...More

The Villa Farnesina is hidden away between Ponte Mazzini and the Ponte Sisto on the Via della Lungara on the left as you head down towards S.Maria in Trastevere. The villa is in a small garden but I think the main attraction is the frescoes...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

Yes, you could enjoy the Villa Farnesina in just an hour or so. It is a small private villa turned museum. So you could easily see it all in one hour and even linger in some of the rooms within that time and spend time with... More

I'm sorry as well. We were living close to the Vatican and walked there. It is near the Botanical Gardens.
