Full description
Enter a world of Renaissance luxury on a private Villa Farnesina tour. You'll discover spectacular frescoes whilst learning all about the life and work of Raphael and his contemporaries. This grand early-16th-century villa in Trastevere was once the private home of the banker Agostino Chigi, one of the wealthiest men in Europe at the time. Chigi hired some of the greatest painters of the age, including Raphael and Baldassare Peruzzi, to decorate the rooms of the villa. Throughout your visit to Villa Farnesina you’ll see masterpieces such as Raphael’s Galatea and Cupid, as well as the spectacular Hall of Perspective, accompanied by an expert guide who will you show the secrets of the villa as they guide you through the various gardens and sumptuously decorated rooms. During your visit to one of the most beautiful establishments in Rome, you’ll also gain a unique insight into the Renaissance high society.
