All the rooms are embellished with 18th century furniture and chandeliers.
On display is the family’s art collection, including valuable objects, old master paintings, engravings and fine Ginori porcelain of the 18th century.
On display is also a selection of hand-made items from the Ranieri di Sorbello School of Embroidery, which was founded in 1904 by the Marchesa Romeyne Robert at the Villa Pischiello, near Lake Trasimeno.
