Full description
Experience the timeless Raphael frescoes at Villa Farnesina. The banker Agostino Chigi wanted the artist of the pope and many others to turn his weekend mansion into a gem. Horoscope, Zodiac symbols, and Pagan gods. You will not believe this was the villa of one of the most important men in the history of the church. As it is on the same side of the Vatican, Trastevere became the favorite place to build summer villas for the noble families in Rome.

After your visit to Villa Farnesina, take a short walk in Trastevere. Follow your guide as they provide insight about one of the most charming and ancient districts of the eternal city. Lose yourself in the winding alleys and escape the crowds of the city with a small group. Meet real Romans, enjoy the area's traditional cuisine, wander through winding lanes and experience real Rome.
