Villa Torlonia is quite a charming park with 2 obelisks and 2 small museums in it. You can easily get there by tram - numbers 3 and 19. I visited Rome during the Holy week and it was really crowded, so I found this place an oasis of tranquility away from the mobs. I really loved the Owl house and... More

The alure of the villa is actually not that it's very pretty or an architectural marvel. It's its history that makes it interesting. This is the place in which Mussolini lived before and during WW2. The villa itself was rather damaged after the war but beautifully restored. It's the pictures of the Mussolini family that make it interesting. You see... More

This park is one of the most beautiful of the all city: isn't very big but it's important also because is the site of museums and for his history, tragically linked with the name of Mussolini that get it as his residence. This park is also very good for jogging!

We read a brief description of Villa Torlonia in Lonely Plane (I think) which said that the palm trees are plentiful and that this park is frequented by locals. After spending a couple of hours at the Borghesi Gallery, take a walk toward Villa Torlonia. You'll go through some cool neighborhoods, and varying architecture. The walk may take 30 minutes...

Former residence of Benito Mussolini and nice area surrounded by a green park, Villa Torlonia was an interesting discovery during my last trip to the capital. It has interesting buildings, of which the Villa itself is definitely and obviously the most important one. It's a good place to spend some time relaxing and taking a quiet walk far from the...

I visited Villa Torlonia last week while in Rome. To be honest, I stopped in because it was close to our hotel and my husband had to work for a couple of hours. I was astounded! The Villa Nobile, which sits in the center of a large garden, has been completely restored after falling to ruin after the 2nd World... More

We wandered past this beautiful Villa and decided to go in, what a fabulous surprise considering there are two buildings, the main villa and the Owl House, which has the most magnificent collection of stained glass windows anywhere we have yet seen. The history includes Mussolini, so all the more interesting!

Interesting to see the residence of Mussolini. The villa is located just outside the city walls, about a 20 minute walk from Piazza Reppublica. Much restoration has been done to return the villa to it original state. This isn't a must do attraction, but is interesting.
