Lovely architecture

Pity we found the palace closed when we arrived yet the facade and location in Ariccia is worth a visit when open. The Church opposite is imposing and was worth viewing

Hidden Gem
2017. jún. • Romantikus
There was nothing on the exterior to indicate this was a palazzo with over 500 years of history. We went on a guided tour of the living quarters. The wall "paper" being stitched together, embossed leather was stunning and so unusual. The guide advised it was able to cool the rooms in summer and retain heat in winter. Artwork and the original furniture told of the times in which the family lived. Most interesting was the family tree, the patriarchal society. Protecting the position through marriage, church positions, young cardinals (18). From three brothers being bankers in the 1500 era to 150 members of the family a Pope, three Cardinals, 15 nuns, one saint. The family still has direct descendants in Rome. Each member of the family has miniature portraits for us to view in one room. A must for fans of history, culture, art, anthropology and Catholicism.

Amazingly well preserved 16th century palazzo!
2016. dec. • Baráti
We had a tour guide all to ourselves and he was terrific - extremely knowledgeable. I was able to understand his Italian - he spoke very clearly and not too quickly - but someone who does not know any Italian might want to check first to see if an English language tour is available. The rooms are amazing - especially the walls that are covered in stamped cordovan leather. The family history is seen through many wonderful portraits. Bernini was responsible for the enlargement of the palace and several of his works/touches are seen.

A pleasant discovery
2016. aug. • Családi
I visited this palace with my family on the 4th of August. I really liked the palace and especially the leather walls, i've never seen them before. The guided tour was very interesting, also thanks to our guide Marco, very prepared and enjoyable.
Excellent quality according to the price. The only problem is that the opening hours of the palace and the garden are different, so we didn't manage to visit both.

Palazzo Chigi / Roma
2015. ápr. • Baráti
Agostino Chigi was a rich banker of Siena and he choice Rome and order to construct a wonderful Villa in 1508; (Recently renoved).
Also Raffael and his students illustrated Mythology scenes, also horoscope with
constellation, star pictures.
- Cardinal Farnese acquired the Villa 70 years later.
A visit must : -Triumph of Galatea: a head of a young boy, probabily from Michelangelo:
shows scene of archtiect Perruzzi's, like Perseus who decapted Medusa;
- The fresko cycle of Amor and Psyche; the loggia with Rafael's fresko of Amor has
the view of a sumptuous garden.
- and the salone Prospetive, with columns with painted illusions.
You must have enough time in Rome to visit this Villa too.

Too Good To Overlook
2014. nov. • Romantikus
The Palazzo Chigi is often overlooked by tourists in Rome and is arguably one which should be on the must do list. Allow time to be consumed into the history as well as the charm of this building - you will not regret.

Service - - Need to improve !!!!
2014. júl. • Baráti
The palace is quite nice, well worth a visit. We visit the place through a guide tour and the Baroque Museum. However, we opted not to visit the garden.

The reception had problems in printing the tickets. Thus, after 5 minutes waiting, & getting annoyed, she allowed to visit the museum. However, the doors of the various rooms were still closed, and someone come with us to open the doors.

The museum is quite small & paintings not of top quality. Lift not available for all tourists/customers.

Afterwards, we had the visit of the Piano Nobile. The guide tour started 10 - 15 minutes late, but the guide was quite knowledge. The visit was fine.

Still, the overall organization need to be improved & the service offered need to be upgraded.

A lovely day out
2014. máj. • Baráti
I'm lucky enough to live in this area of Italy had been here often a few years ago when the children were younger. We always liked it for its setting and simple elegance and lived in feel. It's a good size for a family visit as each of the rooms has something that can easily appeal to youngsters and there isn't too much "traipsing" to do.
Now the palazzo itself is much improved, with added wall coverings, a tidier feel and much more to see. We didn't have time to visit the Cardinal's apartment and the Museum, so will be going back to visit. The guide made the somewhat complicated (but oh so Italian) family history come to life and while the artwork is not of the very first order for Italy (except Bernini's beautiful sanguigna in the chapel) there are some great collections that perfectly illustrate the family and the times.
We were delighted to find that a part of the garden is now also open, and walking in the sunshine, on the soft grass under the huge trees and through ancient and medieval ruins is absolutely delightful. We didn't have time for the guided tour, but a friendly guide gathered together a group of visitors anyway and took us down a "secret" path to see the old ice houses and glimpse the old working acqueduct babbling down among the trees below us.
It is worth mentioning that Ariccia is a lovely small town with a beautiful church designed by Bernini, an impressive bridge which it is worth walking down to see from below, and is cram full with places to eat the delicious local roast pork.
Parking is expensive (2€/h) but below the town, right under the aforementioned bridge there is a free car park with lots of spaces, and a 1 € lift if necessary to get you to the top of the town.

Unexpected surprise!
2013. aug. • Baráti
This astonishing Palace is located in the centre of Ariccia's main place. The external façade of this building looks quite linear, even if magnificent, but the internal rooms are really impressive. Thanks to our guide, a very skilled guy, we got a lot of information about the Chigi's dinasty and the complicated history of their summer residence. Many pieces of furniture are original and contribute to recreate the picturesque atmosphere of the seventeenth century. All is well conserved inside: the paintings, the sculptures, the special wall paper, the furniture (including a wardrobe with original clothes, beds, bedside tables, ancient games, a small pharmacy and so on). Do not forget that the Italian film director Luchino Visconti decided to set here his masterpiece "Il Gattopardo (The Leopard)". Let alone the adjacent grove. I assure you this Palace is really worth a visit!
