Villa Farnese
The Villa Farnese, also known as Villa Caprarola, is a mansion in the town of Caprarola in the province of Viterbo, Northern Lazio, Italy, approximately 50 kilometres north-west of Rome. This villa should not be confused with the Palazzo Farnese and the Villa Farnesina, both in Rome.
The Villa Farnese is situated directly above the town of Caprarola and dominates its surroundings. It is a massive Renaissance and Mannerist construction, opening to the Monte Cimini, a range of densely wooded volcanic hills. It is built on a five-sided plan in reddish gold stone; buttresses support the upper floors. As a centerpiece of the vast Farnese holdings, Caprarola has always been an expression of Farnese power, rather than a villa in the more usual agricultural or pleasure senses.

Villa Farnese - LA Times
Villa Farnese is a state-owned museum but far enough off the beaten path to attract relatively few sightseers compared with the more famous Villa d'Este in Tivoli. Visitors are admitted in groups led by docents who usher them around without describing the villa's features; there's little in the way of printed information in English; and some tours don't include the garden on the hill behind the villa with its exquisite fountains and summer house, or casino. The lack of explanation in English frustrates some. -- Susan Spano Read more: France's Vaux le Vicomte vs. Italy's Villa Farnese
