What to expect

Begin your experience at Villa Torlonia where, accompanied by an expert and entertaining guide, you will discover this stunning neoclassical complex.

Small lakes, exotic plants, columns, obelisks, a tournament area, a medieval village and the Casina delle Civette which plays host to a stained glass museum will be part of your itinerary. During the twenty years of fascism, Villa Torlonia was the private residence of Benito Mussolini and his family, also used for political meetings. In the mansion, it was possible to practice sports such as tennis and riding thanks to the inclusion of a beautiful jumping area; it also hosts an air-raid bunker located in the basement of the villa which was built to protect guests from raids. Villa Torlonia was turned into a public park at the end of the 1970s.

Inside the park, you will visit the so-called Casina delle Civette, the residence of Prince Giovanni Torlonia until his death in the 1930s. Today this house is a museum with 20 rooms full of paintings, mosaics, colorful stained glass windows and porches decorated with maiolica. Continue your experience admiring the impressive collection of sculptures kept in the Casino Nobile, renovated by the architect Giuseppe Valadier and decorated with stunning paintings and stuccoes. End your tour with a stroll through the remarkable Coppedè quarter, an Art Nouveau gem in the heart of Rome designed by the architect Gino Coppedè. See the symbol of this neighborhood like the lovely Fountain of the Frogs in the famous Piazza Mincio.
