Villa Farnese Reviews
This place was the ancient seat of the fabulously wealthy and powerful Farnese dynasty. Excellent information plaques in English throughout. A little off the beaten track, but very much worth the... more »
Absolutely fantastic palace with great frescoes, including a map room. Wonderful gardens - with a fantastic garden extension at the top of the garden, which could easily be missed. more »
Stunning beautiful villa definitively worth a visit. Only the ground floor is wheelchair accessible (entrance from the garden, at the back of the main entrance which is all stairs) but the ground floor is well worth a visit with it's many frescoed rooms. There is also a garden, partially wheelchair accessible and with gravel.
Amazing artwork and a step back into renaissance Italy. Also not very crowded due to distance from Rome. Well worth the visit and great value for money at only 5 euros per person.
