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

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
