Piazza Farnese Tours & Tickets

star-4
1 Review
Piazza Farnese
One of the most handsome public squares in Rome, Piazza Farnese is home to the majestic Palazzo Farnese, today the French Embassy. Also on the square are the Chiesa di Santa Brigida and two stately fountains made from marble basins pilfered from the ancient Roman baths of Caracalla.

The Basics
The best way to visit Piazza Farnese is by joining a Rome walking, e-bike, or Segway tour that includes a stop in the 16th-century piazza along with other nearby highlights such as the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and Piazza Navona. Specialty tours, including Rome by Vespa scooter, food experiences, and wine tastings, often include a visit to Piazza Farnese. The square is located just across the Tiber River from Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto, so Piazza Farnese is easily paired with a tour of one of these historic neighborhoods. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Piazza Farnese offers no shade, so be sure to wear a hat and sunscreen if visiting during the hot summer months.
  • A number of cafés and restaurants line the square, perfect for a meal or snack.
  • Though accessible to wheelchair users, the square is not completely closed to traffic. Be cautious when crossing.
  • Piazza Farnese is particularly pretty at night when the fountains and Palazzo Farnese are dramatically lit.

How to Get There
Piazza Farnese is in Rome’s historic center, an easy walk from busy Via di Torre Argentina, where a number of city bus lines stop.

When to Get There
A stroll through Piazza Farnese is particularly pretty in the light of early morning or late afternoon, or at night when the palace is dramatically lit. 

The Sights on Piazza Farnese
By far the square’s most famous sight, Palazzo Farnese was begun in the early 16th century by a Farnese cardinal who would become Pope Paul III in 1534. Today Palazzo Farnese is the city's largest Renaissance palace. Other attractions on the piazza include Chiesa di Santa Brigida, former home of the Swedish saint converted into a church upon her death in the 1370s; and two fountains with huge bathing basins as their bases, once used by ancient Romans to soak away their cares at the baths of Caracalla.
