This is one of the true hidden gems of Rome. The Irish College has spent a great deal of time, effort and money in converting this old convent to a modern, comfortable and extremely convenient home away from home. The facilities include a swimming pool, tennis court and five aside football pitch. The rooms are generously sized with lofty ceilings and large windows which open onto the gardens. In the morning the birds provide a lovley spectacle in the tall trees in the grounds. The staff couldn't be more helpful.
There are many fine restaurants in the environs, the colloseum being about seven minutes walk away (downhill). St John Lateran is just around the corner and I would commend the little electric busses which leave Lateran Square and conduct you to the Spanish steps in about 15 mins.
The Villa is an ideal location to stay in Rome - and very good value! I hope t be back soon.
