Fodor's Review

This is the house in which the painter was born and where he took his first steps in painting, under the direction of his artist father. There's some debate about the fresco of the Madonna here; some say it's by Raphael, whereas others attribute it to the father—with Raphael's mother and the young painter himself standing in as models for the Madonna and Child.

Casa Natale di Raffaello Review

The memorabilia of Raphael was interesting, though not earth-shattering. For a fan of Rapheal, it was a good place to visit. We enjoyed, more, though, seeing what a middle-class house of that time looked like. It seemed like the Santi family lived quite well.
