Take a fascinating journey through Italian Renaissance Art


Take a fascinating journey through Italian Renaissance Art

Tour Description

Plunge into the world of Renaissance and Baroque art on our private tour of Villa Farnesina.

Built in the early sixteenth century for Agostino Chigi, a rich Sienese banker and patron, this residence is one of the most beautiful and noblest creations of the 16th architecture and home to the precious paintings by Raphael and his artistic disciples. Your expert local guide will take you through the spectacular rooms of the Villa, decorated with finest frescoes, rare furniture and priceless artworks, focusing your attention on the most important pieces. You will see mythological and classic frescoes by Sebastiano del Piombo, Giulio Romano, Sodoma and Peruzzi and get close to Raphael's unique masterpieces such as the Stories of Cupid and Venus and the Tryumph of Galatea.

Your private guide will take you on a journey through the centuries, entertaining you with fascinating stories, little-known curiosities and historical anecdotes about Roman Renaissance and its main exponents.

If time permits, after the visit of the Villa you can extend the tour to the surrounding picturesque area of Trastevere to see other interesting sites of the city.
