Guided tours upon reservation

The French Academy in Rome offers the possibility of booking private guided tours without external participants to the group. These tours, lasting 1 hour and 30 minutes, allow visitors to discover the heritage of Villa Medici accompanied by a dedicated guide.

In the presence of temporary exhibitions, it is also possible to organize guided tours of these exhibitions.
