Trip Info

An art tour of the Villa Farnesina and the Borghese Gallery. People say that the best Roman holiday is always the one to come. Maybe that’s because every time you visit the Eternal city you discover a new and incredible masterpiece you didn’t expect. If you ever had this feeling, this is your tour.

Get in touch with one of the purest examples of Renaissance art: the Villa Farnesina, built for the banker, the Popes Agostino Chigi and decorated by the most exquisite artist of the time: Raphael. On the other side of the street another unexpected jewel: the Corsini Palace, an elegant XVIII century palace, built for the family of Pope Clement the XII. The first floor of the palace hosts the collection of art gathered by Cardinal Neri Corsini and other members of the family. Grandiose masterpieces and sophisticated small paintings and sculptures are adorning the galleries and the rooms, making this collection a unique example of a noble family mansion.
