We climbed the hill out of Frascati and arrived outside the Villa, but there were no entry signs everywhere, but we asked a local and he showed us a gate in. The villa looks like it is being renovated but the fountains and the viewpoint over Frascati was stunning. Lovely peaceful place and worth a look

Gorgeous villa with garden on the hill overlooking Rome area. Been there by car on the 1st of May and it was quite hard to find parking.

Put on your strolling shoes and enjoy a pastoral, quiet, lovely (and free!) walk out to the Villa, around the buildings, fountains, and gardens! What a restorative treat. We especially enjoyed walking the shaded drive down to the gate (which we discovered was locked), enjoying the views, then walking back up again, and back into town. Enjoy!

It is easy to overlook this amazing property. It can be viewed from the main square in Frascati, and sits proudly on the hillside overlooking the town and countryside beyond. There is a lovely tree line drive up to the villa through pretty gates, however, proceed up the hill, need a car unless extra fit, to the main entrance. It... More

I fancied an excursion out of Rome during my holiday, to escape the heat and crowds, and Frascati didn't disappoint. This town is easily reached via the suburban train FR4F from Termini station. You can't miss the villa at the top of the hill, above Piazza Marconi. It's quite a climb on foot to reach it but worth the effort.... More

Been to Frascati with my family. Villa Aldobrandini is a beautiful architect at hill top. It was closed for tourists.

Like other reviewers I only saw this from the outside, and there was definitely an air of faded elegance. The reason for the review is I thought I would be able to walk up to it, however the road is narrow and dangerous with traffic and after a while the signs disappear along with the pavement. When I came across... More

Frascati is very easy to get to from Rome. There is a train every hour from Termini and it casts about euros 2.50. The town is on a high hill with an amazing view over Rome. The gardens of the Villa Aldobrandini are free to visit but only from Monday to Friday. It seems that the Prince values his peace... More

We had only a brief stop in Frascati for several hours on a bus tour from Rome. We were able to appreciate Villa Aldobrandini only through the gate from the street, but the gardens seemed to cascade down the hill, and the building itself is big and grand. Wish we could have seen inside and toured the grounds. Frascati itself... More
