Two historical buildings with the walls of Villa Torlonia have been transformed into museum sites: the Casino Nobile, built in the 19th century, now houses the museum that documents the Villa itself as well as a collection of works by the Roman School, and the Museum of the Casina delle Civette, dedicated to artistic stained glass.

Villa Torlonia provides an interesting snapshot of patrician life in Rome in the 1800s, yet another different aspect of this incredible city, and somehow off the radar screen of the tourist mass (we were there on Easter day, and we made the right choice). There...More

It is away from the tourist areas which is definitely a plus. The buildings are nice but the grounds are in need of some serious maintenance. The weeds have taken over and pathways are not well marked with gravel or anything. But it has potential...More

We were visiting Rome for 7 days and we're looking for something a bit slower pace and off the beaten path on our last day. This park site along with the museums was well worth the trip. Interesting history, beautiful restored interiors.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the villa and it's grounds provide an island of calm away from the maddening crowds of other Roman moments and museums. If you're in Rome for more than a couple of days, I'd highly recommend a visit. It's very beautiful...More

The park contains the Villa Torlonia which was rented to Benito Mussolini from 1925 - 1943. It is a little way out of town but well worth visiting. There are two museums in the grounds and a great park for strolling or playing with the...More
