Great Place to see. Only see by tours at certain times. Tours in many languages. It is a early Renaissance Villa owned by the Medici now a French art school. Not allowed to walk alone. There is a cafe up the stairs and toilets.

The villa is on top of a hill, overlooking a wonderful view of the city of Rome. I was expecting to visit the interior of the villa that looked so beautiful from the outside. First of all we were obliged to take a guided tour....More

A wonderful place, with an excellent cafè restaurant you wouldn't like to leave. It serves continental breakfast, tea, lunch; very good refined cuisine, both Roman (light) and international. Delicious cakes, professionally baked and top quality ingredients.

We did a tour and saw the bedroom of the cardinal that owned this place, the ceilings were amazing. The gardens are gorgeous. It is now a French academy for artist.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
