Villa Farnese (Caprarola)
Latest update: 26 February 2022
The Villa Farnese in Caprarola is one of the most beautiful, yet relatively little-known sights in the whole Lazio region. Not to be confused with the Villa Farnesina in nearby Rome, it's a glorious palace created in the Mannerist and Renaissance styles.
Dominating the small town of Caprarola, its map room, monumental staircase and huge gardens are of particular interest.
In recent years, Villa Farnese has been used as a filming location for a number of hit TV shows about the Italian Renaissance, including Medici Masters of Florence and the 2021 series Leonardo starring Aidan Turner.
