Home to prince Torlonia in its earlier years, Villa Torlonia is a quieter tourist attraction but still quite important. The rooms on the ground floor and first floors of the villa have been redecorated to house the Villa Museum. The villa also has an attractive park perfect for a quiet stroll.Mussolini owned this villa in his power, and you can still see his bedroom how it was today. If you are a history buff, sign up for a tour of Mussolini’s Bunker.While in the neighborhood, you can also see the not-so-well-known Coppedè area, very nearby, which has fantastic gothic style architecture and circular streets.
The main building, Casino Nobili or Palace was once the home of Benito Mussolini and family from 1925 to 1943 and contains much of Mussolini's furniture and artifacts. On the Villa's grounds and park is the Cabina delle Civette once the home of Prince Torlonia who lived there alone with his servants. It is now a museum of stained glass. the 20 rooms are characterized by painted walls, stucco work, mosaics and carved panels. Another building on the grounds is the Casino de Principi which exhibits a collection of Italian art from the 1920' to the 1940's called Archivio della Scuola Romana.
It's a good park for hiking and walking dogs. The sandstone road between the green belts shuttles between the lake and some Roman-style buildings. There's a great building in it. The murals and statues are concentrated here. The paintings on the ceiling are exquisite and can't be missed.
