Villa Celimontana

Returning to the center of Rome less than three kilometers from the Spanish Steps, be sure to take a stroll in the gardens of Villa Celimontana, the Renaissance building in the Parco del Celio. It is an oasis between the Colosseum and the Baths of Caracalla, a destination for lovers of jazz because of the international events that are organized there every year.

The Villa is home to the Italian Geographical Society, where some of the most important maps of Italy are conserved. It is situated on Monte Celio which since ancient times has been the object of particular interest because of its lush vegetation and abundant spring waters, to the extent of being known as the mountain of oaks. It was Duke Ciriaco Mattei who transformed what was once a vineyard into a real park. The villa now belongs to the City of Rome and is an ideal setting for outdoor dining and in summer offers many artistic and cultural activities.
