Honeymoon & Romance

The past and present collide in Rome, a city where ancient ruins rest alongside modern art galleries and designer fashion boutiques. Though Roman mythology sets the founding of the city at only 753 B.C., the area has been inhabited far longer. In fact, this is one of the oldest continuously-occupied domains in Europe. These days, Rome is Italy’s largest city and fourth largest in the European Union. But its size is inconsequential; Romans still live la dolce vita. Indulge yourself by sipping an espresso at a family-owned café or blending in with the locals at Campo de Fiori, one of Rome's more vibrant food markets. Do not miss classic sights such as the Colosseum, Galleria Borghese, and the Trevi Fountain (the setting of the iconic fountain scene in Fellini’s La Dolce Vita). Tour Vatican City with a private guide; it is the only independent country located within the borders of a city, to which Catholics from around the world make pilgrimage. Take a quick taxi ride to St. Peters Cathedral, or hire a guide to explore sights such as the Pantheon. Rome contains multitudes, and Villa Parioli is the perfect home base.

Villa Parioli occupies the entire first floor of an historic palazzo in the residential Parioli neighborhood, offering plenty of luxurious touches and true Roman elegance along with easy access (even on foot) to the historic city center. Located right behind the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, the villa is ideally situated for exploring Rome. The Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain are only a 25-minute walk; on the way you can wander through the Borghese Gardens. Ancient Rome, housing the Coliseum, the Forum, Palatine Hill, and more, is just another 20 minutes away. Members will often walk into the city and grab a taxi when ready to return to Villa Parioli. This leased property is expertly handled by a team of service experts: your Experience Manager will reach out to begin planning 30-45 days in advance, then hand your details over to a Local Host about a week before you arrive.

Villa Parioli

Villa Parioli | Rome, Italy

Live like a local when you vacation at our spacious three-bedroom apartment just outside the Villa Borghese gardens in the coveted Parioli neighborhood, Rome’s most elegant residential area. Villa Parioli spans the entire ground floor of an historic renovated palazzo. Tucked away off the street behind a gate, the villa can be found up a set of shallow stairs, across a courtyard, and through another gate, giving you all the privacy you desire. With this individual entrance, a private courtyard, and gorgeous classic decor (think Venetian chandeliers), you'll enjoy plenty of authentic Roman style at home. This residence offers an expansive grand salon, private sitting area and covered loggia off the dining room which will leave your guests awestruck from the moment they walk in. Three air-conditioned bedrooms with en suite baths allow for a group of up to six people to stay comfortably. Two bedrooms have a queen bed, and the last has two twin beds that can be combined to make a queen with advanced notice.

This may have you thinking you’ll never want to leave your Roman hideaway. But you will – the historic city center is a leisurely walk away, you’re only 25 minutes by car from the Vatican, and all the many attractions of the fashionable Parioli neighborhood are just outside your front door. With the assistance of your Local Host, you’ll soon be strolling the parks and plazas and streets of the city's many charming neighborhoods, cycling through the city's historic center, shopping in the exclusive Via Condotti, or even escaping the crowds with a day trip to a nearby archaeological site. The villa’s convenient access to the best of this city will have you feeling like a lifelong Italian in no time.

Postcard from a Member

Everything was spectacular. The Experience Manager, the Local Host, and my Ambassador were all incredible. The private guided tours were outstanding, with tour guides that had advanced degrees - PhD in Art History, an archaeologist, etc. They kept the kids engaged and made it so educational and fun. To have an 11-year-old and a 13-year-old asking when we can go back to a place where most of the time is spent walking around museums, churches, and ancient ruins speaks to how great a job everyone did on our behalf.
