Worth 2 to 3 hours visit to see the splendid villa, all the rooms, the art gallery and the gardens. Mussolini's residence not so well known for many years because of ostracism of the Italian political parties. A human touch, a splendid art collection by Francesco Ingrao, wonderful rooms and gardens.

The attractions here are a welcome change from central Rome. The House of the Owls (Casina delle Civette) is a wonderful, crazy Art Nouveau home, beautiful both inside and outside. The stained glass is stunning.
On the second floor of the main building (Casino Nobile) is a collection of paintings, drawings and sculpture from the Roman School--artists working between the World Wars. A revelation--extremely interesting. Don't miss the sculptures by Antonietta Raphaël.
The grounds are pleasant enough, although we visited in the Summer when everything was very dry and brown. There is a cafe and a children's museum, so you can see school groups and their teachers.

Nice art collection but overall the place is fairly run down. Does not keep much memories of its historical past.

We had been meaning to visit Villa Tornolia for years but never managed to sqeeze it into our schedule. This time we finally made it and were pleasantly surprised. We were expecting a Borghese-esque managed public park, but instead Villa Torlonia is much more "wild" – somewhere between Caffarella and Borgese. There are pictoresque arboreal landscapes adjoined with fountains and wonderful buildings. We did not have time to roam the place properly and will definitely return. There are three museums and other attractions in the park, and we visited the largest museum with an excellent exhibit of the Roman School.

Easy to come by bus 60 or tram 3. Museum is amazingly decorated, park was beautiful and had lots of shade spots to enjoy the parklife for a while. Nice reastaurant/cafe in the park. I defenetly recommend to go there, get out from the overcrowred turist areas!
