The exterior, decorated in the 16th century with etchings called sgraffiti, has been meticulously restored by a team of world class art restorers. The interior has been beautifully updated by the owners - two architects specializing in historic preservation and design. • The elegant and spacious home has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a grand living room, state of the art kitchen, and a landscaped garden terrace with sweeping panoramic views. The villa is tastefully furnished with both antique and modern furniture. • The well-connected villa is in the perfect location - 3 km to a train station, you can easily reach Rome in 45 minutes, Florence in 2 hours, and countless other prime destinations easily. • Located in the medieval hilltown of Orte, you can enjoy an authentic experience in the heart of Italy. • The villa of the aqueduct is also a beautiful and unforgettable venue for intimate weddings and celebrations. • Choose our beautifully appointed historic villa for your trip to Italy. The home, in addition to being a tremendous value (3500 sq ft at very competitive all-inclusive rates), is spacious, light-filled, elegant, and full of carefully designed architectural details. • Please Note: While we welcome all families and private groups of friends, we do not rent the villa as a base for third party commercial activities. 'Italy is a dream that you'll keep returning to for the rest of your life' - our villa is worth being part of that dream!More

About the neighborhood
Villa of the Aqueduct is located in the beautiful hilltown of Orte, Tuscia (Northern Lazio), the beautiful region nestled between Rome, Umbria and Tuscany. A central and uniquely well connected location which, with easy access to both A1 Highway and main Italian railroad, permits to travel to Rome in 40 minutes and to most every part of Italy in short time. Arguably the area with the highest density of historic and artistic sites in Italy! You can explore by layers or visit several different destinations in one day. Destinations in the immediate surroundings: - The most important Italian Renaissance gardens: Villa Lante in Bagnaia; Gardens of Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola; Bomarzo Sacred Woods; - The finest examples of Etruscan tombs and archaeological sites: Castel D'Asso; T...
Getting around
The closest airports are in Rome: Fiumicino FCO or Ciampino, at a little over one hour distance. We highly recommend having a car while staying at the villa, to be able to reach more of the innumerable destinations worth visiting in the area. Rome is easily reachable by train, driving to the nearby station of Orte and taking one of the frequent trains - 40 minute ride.
