Villa Sciarra

Villa Sciarra

Map
Via Dandolo, Rome, , Italy

Take a “time out” from the hustle and bustle of Rome and wander the gravel paths of public park Villa Sciarra, named after the adjacent 17th-century Barberini family villa. Built on the site of Caesar Gardens, between the Trastevere and Gianicolo neighborhoods, this botanical gem offers topiaries, statues of Roman mythological creatures, fountains depicting playful fauns, and an aviary. Some areas are original to the Caesar Gardens (the holy copse bordered with statues), while other pieces were moved to the grounds, such as numerous fountains and sculptures from an 18th-century Lombard villa near Milan.
