Beautiful old villa with amazing gardens surrounding it - if you want to see perfect gardens (think boxwood hedges and angular lines) this is the place for you. Interestingly now owned by France so you might see a French soldier out front on guard. If...More

A wonderful place, with an excellent cafè restaurant you wouldn't like to leave. It serves continental breakfast, tea, lunch; very good refined cuisine, both Roman (light) and international. Delicious cakes, professionally baked and top quality ingredients.

We did a tour and saw the bedroom of the cardinal that owned this place, the ceilings were amazing. The gardens are gorgeous. It is now a French academy for artist.

Thought we were going to get a tour of the Villa, but the tour really focuses on the Accademia di Francia, which now runs the place. If you are into Renisance art this is for you. Only spent a few minutes in the Villa itself...More

Very nice house and gardens but very dull tour. We really liked the history involving the tour when we entered the garden but the tour mostly consisted off the guide telling us about the art students living there now. And almost everything in the house...More

Visited the recently restored gardens with a group of Mediterranean gardeners. Spectacular terrace with incredible views over Rome. Behind interesting layout with hedges and even a fruit garden. Fountain of snakes incredible.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
