Art Nouveau Rome: Villa Torlonia & Coppedé Private Tour

2. Art Nouveau Rome: Villa Torlonia & Coppedé Private Tour

Enjoy a half-day private tour of Villa Torlonia, just 10 minutes by taxi from Rome city center, and discover an early 19th century house, built for a rich banking family ennobled by the pope a century earlier. Your guide will tell you the villa’s history, including when it became the home of Mussolini in the 1930s. The separate bedrooms he and his wife Rachele used are on the upper floor of the Villino Nobile, although the original furniture has gone. The basement also provided access to 2 bunkers that Mussolini built, one as a bomb shelter and the other as a gas shelter. Marvel at the extravagant House of the Owls, former residence of Prince Giovanni Torlonia the Younger until his death in 1938. Set at the edge of the park in a discrete location, the house was intended as a refuge from the formality of the main residence. Its architecture is the result of a series of transformations and additions planned by different architects with artisanal or industrial materials. Learn about the rich decorations of the 2 internal levels, finished with artistic sculptures and furniture with pictorial effects. See some of the best examples of local stained glass and inlaid wood sourced from the local workshops of Rome. Next, explore the Coppedé neighborhood and discover one of the best residential areas in Rome. As you walk, your guide will point out the fantastic Art Nouveau architecture designed by Gino Coppedé, and more.

Since the Roma Pass can be used for many attractions without queuing, this is a great advantage due to the number of visitors. Furthermore, the use of public transport with the Roma Pass is free of charge. The pick-up location at the train station was poorly described in the confirmation e-mail (platform 24)

Made all the sightseeing easier after getting the card. There was a little confusion about where to get the physical ticket but their help chat really helped a lot. If you are planning to use public transport, get this.

Very practical and great value for money. Just be aware of the guidelines for use, several places require prior reservation on a specific website

Very convenient to visit Rome using transport as needed + 2 visits included We had taken the collosseum and Villa Borghese

Great job! We visited Colloseum and the next outside museum for free.
