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.

Our tour of the Villa Farnesina with our guide, Guia, was outstanding. She was not only knowledgeable about the architecture and art, but she also provided other important perspectives. She understands and was able to clearly communicate the context of the Villa and its artwork, so it is possible to appreciate not only what are you seeing, but why it was built or commissioned. We came into the tour with a fair amount of knowledge of renaissance art and architecture, and we’re thrilled with what we learned on our tour!

We had a private tour of Villa Farnesia with Gulia. She was incredibly knowledgeable. If we had just gone on our own, I think we would have missed some of the amazing details and stories about the place. She really brought it to life and was very fastinating. Highly reccomend.
