Italian beauty and elegance
Buildings, gardens, fountains, architectural furnishings and much more, all within the splendour of Villa Doria Pamphili. We are in the Eternal City, in the Monteverde-Gianicolense district, immersed in Rome’s 450-acre Parco Pubblico. Here, this historic residence reigns supreme as the official representative seat of the Italian government.
Villa Doria Pamphili is now also an elegant park, the largest in the city. Like many other parks, it began as the country estate of a noble Roman family. Centuries later, the structure still retains its 17th-century appearance and the main features it had in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is divided into three parts: the palace and gardens (pars urbana), the pine forest (pars fructuaria) and the agricultural estate (pars rustica).
Today, Villa Pamphili is a popular stop in the capital for locals and tourists alike thanks to its lush vegetation, its peace and tranquillity, and certainly for its location, far enough away from the chaotic centre. This makes it the perfect compromise between the lure and comforts of the city and the feeling of experiencing a relaxing “Roman holiday”.
