Lonely Planet review

North of the Piazza della Repubblica you'll find the 15th-century house where Raphael was born in 1483 and spent his first 16 years. On the 1st floor is possibly one of Raphael's first frescoes, a Madonna with child. The museum takes a touching look at Raphael's family life.

Above all it homes in on the influence of his father, Giovanni Santi, who was a court painter and taught his talented young son all he knew.
