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.

It is away from the tourist areas which is definitely a plus. The buildings are nice but the grounds are in need of some serious maintenance. The weeds have taken over and pathways are not well marked with gravel or anything. But it has potential and is a nice quiet stroll.

The present condition of the Villa grounds says volumes about Italy and Rome's commitment to preserving it's history. The buildings are in need of major repair, the grounds are unkept and full of trash, and the pools are empty. Images of 'Grey Gardens'. The interiors of the main house are much better and the art exhibits are interesting. I very... More

We were visiting Rome for 7 days and we're looking for something a bit slower pace and off the beaten path on our last day. This park site along with the museums was well worth the trip. Interesting history, beautiful restored interiors.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the villa and it's grounds provide an island of calm away from the maddening crowds of other Roman moments and museums. If you're in Rome for more than a couple of days, I'd highly recommend a visit. It's very beautiful and very peaceful. The villa is particularly impressive inside and out. To give a little... More

Beautiful ballroom. Great grounds to sit or wander. Amazing. History connected to Mussolini. Amazing Italian restaurant at the back of the grounds. Wonderful mosaics. Admission fee for... More

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... More
