Villa Farnesina

Mon-Sat 9am-2pm; 2nd Sunday of every month 9am-5pm
Via della Lungara 230, Rome, 00165

The basics

Villa Farnesina is open to the public. The ground-floor Loggia of Cupid and Psyche and the Loggia of Galatea contain frescoes attributed to Raphael, while the first floor’s Hall of Perspectives features a fresco by Peruzzi depicting a colonnade overlooking the hills and the city of Rome—trompe l'oeil techniques lend the painting a three-dimensional appearance.

Explore the interior independently with the aid of an audio guide, which is included with the admission price. Alternatively, take a guided tour. English-language tours run twice weekly on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Some guided tours of Rome’s Trastevere neighborhood include entry to Villa Farnesina, as well as a guide who can offer additional information on the luxurious lives enjoyed by Rome’s Renaissance-era elite.

Francesco was an excellent tour guide...
Francesco was an excellent tour guide with a deep knowledge of Art History and an engaging, wonderful personality. He was able to switch gears in talking with our group and provided so many interesting bits of knowledge about Villa Farnesina. This made for a great tour. Will definitely book with him again!
