Map
183 Via Aurelia Antica, Rome, , Italy

This 17th century villa stakes claim in the largest landscaped public park in Rome. Situated just outside Porta San Pancrazio, it was known as Bel Respiro, or “beautiful breath,” for its panoramic views of the city. The villa contained a casino, which housed a collection of Roman sculptures and antiquities such as vases, sarcophagi, and inscriptions. Today the propery is surrounded by lush gardens, clipped hedges, fountains, waterfalls, and statues, making it a favorite spot for running or a leisurely stroll. The large park also includes arches of an ancient aqueduct.
