Owner description: A jewel of the early XXth century Roman architecture, Villa Maraini stands on an artificial hill and is surrounded by a splendid garden with a nymphaeum shaped as a natural grotto. From its Belvedere tower, which is the city’s second highest point after the cupola of St. Peter’s, you can enjoy a wonderful view of Rome. Guided tours, by reservation only (Italian, French and English) on Mondays at 3pm and 4 pm.

“Stunning pictures of this building.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Unfortunately we couldn't get in to do a tour, but even if you dont manage to, go by here at twilight and night, its a fairytale looking building from below and offer a great picture, also its just around the corner from the top of the Spanish steps so you're not going far out of your way just to get a picture, but it does look like something out of a Disney cartoon, that said in the most positive way, the lighting and the caves at the entrance make it a stunning view.
