A short walk north across the Tiber down from Ponte Mazzini, is a magnificent Renaissance Villa, the Villa Farnesina. Enter via Via della Lungara, through the gate marked "Accademia Dei Lincei". Villa Farnesina was built by a wealthy banker from Siena, Agostino Chigi, between 1506...More

In the lovely Trastevere area of Rome this is a haven of peace to spend an hour looking at some beautiful frescoes, including by Raphaele. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy art.

Beautiful museum with interesting history. There is not access to the whole park, but worth a visit when exploring Travestere

The access is not on the river frontage but from the opposite side on Via Della Paglia - not clear on our map or in our guide book. The entrance is hardly signposted either - just a narrow gateway. The frescoes are worth the walk...More

Strange to title a review with a tip on location, but it was surprisingly dauntingly difficult for us to find Villa Farnesina. And since they are only open until 2, and we were only finally directed as to where it was around 1:15, we had...More

Easy to find and not too crowded, beautiful villa and grounds. Rent the audio guide and walk through this lovely villa. Not a must see, but if you are nearby certainly worth checking out.

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

How can so quiet and calm a place be so close to the center of Rome? No crowds, great interior frescoes by Raphael, a nice garden outside to sit in and relax plus also temporary exhibitions (when we went there was a multimedia presentation of...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.
