B&B near Villa Doria Pamphilj

Bed and Breakfast vicino a Villa Doria Pamphilj

The Villa Doria Pamphili is a park of the city of Rome, which like many other city parks originates from the country estate of a noble Roman family. It is also the representative office of the Italian government.

It is located near the district of Trastevere and the Vatican City, so we can say that our bed and breakfast is close to Villa Doria Pamphili.

It was designed by the sculptor Alessandro Algardi and the painter Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi in the early seventeenth century. In 1960 it was divided into two distinct parts to the opening of the Via Olimpica, on the occasion of the Games of the XVII Olympiad. With its 184 hectares is the largest park in Rome and is one of the “villas” best preserved city.

The villa is divided into three parts: the palace and gardens (pars urbana), the pine forest (pars fructuaria), and the farm (pars rustica).
Inside there is also a river that comes in a lake with an island in the middle of an elliptical shape. A very important feature of the villa are the gardens, which are innovative compared to the canons of the time. These are designed on two orthogonal axes perpendicular to the first aqueduct and the second parallel.
