Originally farm of the Pamphilj family, passed first to the Colonna Family, then to the Torlonia one, which in 1797 transformed it into a park. Villa Torlonia is on via Nomentana,  near Piazza Bologna, so that you can find a large number of accommodations as B&B and self catering apartments

Several architects added construction over the years.
Giuseppe Valadier transformed  two homes in two large villas, the Palace and the Casino dei Principi, Giovan Battista Caretti created the Temple of Saturn and false ruins, Raimondi the lemon house and the Theatre.
In 1840 Joseph Japelli created the hoot owls and the Swiss hut.
The hoot owls, so named because of the presence of glass with two owls, and the recurring theme of the Owl imprinted in the furniture and decorations, today after a restoration, is a museum, we strongly recommend you to visit having regard to the beauty and uniqueness of it.
Other works and obelisks round the villa, where in 1919 it was discovered a large Jewish underground cemetery.
In 1925 it became the residence of Mussolini that had rented it from the Torlonia for one lira a month.
The Duce meant to use all the buildings of the villa with the exception of hoot owls (where the Prince Torlonia lived), and built three underground bunker using the existing ones.
In 1977 he was re-acquired by the Municipality of Rome and restored since 1990.
