What people are saying about Villa Farnesina

We had a private tour of Villa Farnesia with Gulia. She was incredibly knowledgeable. If we had just gone on our own, I think we would have missed some of the amazing details and stories about the place. She really brought it to life and was very fastinating. Highly reccomend.
