Palaces & Villas of the Renaissance

  • In a very circumscribed area of the Campus Martius - the river plane where the city developed during the Middle Ages - stand the most beautiful palaces of the Renaissance in Rome. This itinerary will highlight them all, trace the development of architecture during that period and to show the magnificence in the life of high prelates. The tour starts across the Tiber, at the Farnesina: a real jewel of Renaissance art designed by Baldassarre Peruzzi as a sumptuous "country villa" for the rich banker Agostino Chigi and decorated by the greatest artists of the time, including Raphael.
  • It continues to the Palazzo della Cancelleria, built between the 15th and 16th century in pure architectural forms for Cardinal Raffaele Riario. A few steps further, across the colorful square of Campo de’ Fiori, is Palazzo Farnese, the largest of Rome's patrician palaces. Today the seat of the French Embassy, it was originally planned by Antonio Sangallo the Younger for Cardinal Alessandro Farnese. When the latter became Pope Paul III, the project was vastly amplified and after Sangallo's death, Michelangelo was entrusted with its completion. The very rich facade of the nearby Palazzo Spada provides a startling contrast to the austere façade of Palazzo Farnese. The tour ends in Palazzo Altemps, a magnificent late Renaissance palace that houses the astonishing Ludovisi collection of ancient marbles.
