This villa is spectacular. We stumbled upon it while we were walking in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome. This villa was built by the wealthiest man in Europe during the early 1500s. He was so wealthy he lent money to kings and popes.
The rooms are opulent with many of the walls and frescoes painted by artists, such as Raphael. Bring binoculars so that you can see everything up close. The admission is reasonable and you are given a laminated card that gives you some brief details about each room. I suggest that you bring your guidebook, such as Rick Steve's, along with you to get some of the interesting background stories behind many of the paintings.
