We had been meaning to visit Villa Tornolia for years but never managed to sqeeze it into our schedule. This time we finally made it and were pleasantly surprised. We were expecting a Borghese-esque managed public park, but instead Villa Torlonia is much more "wild" – somewhere between Caffarella and Borgese.

The Villa Torlonia park and museums are a delightful Roman break from ancient ruins (although you can find them!). The park is small but charming in a way the Pamphilji and Borghese parks are not, and it’s a welcome change.

There are 25 conditions for free entry such as blood donors, Parisian citizens (twinned city)... 更多
