Owner description: 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.

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 children. The park is free but, of course, there is an admission fee for the museums. The restored building has some wonderful period sculptures and furnishings. There is also The House of Owls which was designed like a Swiss Cottage and was the residence of Prince Torlonia. Its name comes from the use of owls as an inspiration for decorations. I visited here on my own while my husband was working. He missed out big time.
