This Villa is very hard to reach: we had to walk for over an hour from Piazza di Spagna where we were staying because there was no public transport from our area. When we got there, the front entrance was closed with no indication that...More

We really enjoyed our visit to Villa Farnesina. The charge to view the villa is small but the best thing about this place is that it is extraordinarily beautiful with many frescoes by famous artists and fabulous architecture with time, space and quiet to enjoy...More

Located on Via della Lungara, this renaissance villa was a glorious find for us. The entry price was worth paying to view so many rooms adorned with breath taking wall paintings. Some look like tapestries, but the whole effect is achieved with paint. I have...More

This beautiful place is tucked away in Trastevere, which is good news for you if you plan to visit - you'll basically have the place to yourself. Ask for the pamphlet that explains the frescoes at the entry desk (it's been translated into a few...More

I loved the frescoes but wish there were headsets available to tells us more about them.The gardens were chained off so one couldn't wander through them.

It is hard to believe that we went to the Villa Farnesina one weekday morning and had the place entirely to ourselves. It was not only an amazing place, and very interesting to imagine that this was a rich family's summer suburban villa in the...More

There are only 5 rooms to see all covered in frescos and absolutely beautiful. There were hardly any other visitors and the scale and intimacy of the place was overwhelming. You felt you could live there and yet you were surrounded by Raphaels and other...More

Well worth a visit. Very beautiful house and not crowded at all. Walk through the large rooms of the palace and just picture yourself in another time. The paintings are breathtaking and if you are the least interested in Raphael's work, go there! Will definately...More

If you like queues and crowds, stay away. If you are rushing through Rome ticking off sights and attractions to say you have seen them, stay away. However, if you want to spend an hour or two admiring the work of a genius, then be...More

It was nice but not something you MUST see. Go if you are in the area. 6 Euro to enter which can be better spent elsewhere.

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
