What an unforgettable holiday! The Villa of the Aqueduct was exactly what we had expected - charming, rustic, old and perhaps in need of a bit of sprucing up. But hey, it's a Renaissance cottage dating back over 500 years. And one that comes with...More

About the neighbourhood
Villa of the Aqueduct is located in the beautiful hilltown of Orte, Tuscia (Northern Lazio), the beautiful region nestled between Rome, Umbria and Tuscany. A central and uniquely well connected location which, with easy access to both A1 Highway and main Italian railroad, permits to travel to Rome in 40 minutes and to most every part of Italy in short time. Arguably the area with the highest density of historic and artistic sites in Italy! You can explore by layers or visit several different destinations in one day. Destinations in the immediate surroundings: - The most important Italian Renaissance gardens: Villa Lante in Bagnaia; Gardens of Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola; Bomarzo Sacred Woods; - The finest examples of Etruscan tombs and archaeological sites: Castel D'Asso; T...
Getting around
The closest airports are in Rome: Fiumicino FCO or Ciampino, at a little over one hour distance. We highly recommend having a car while staying at the villa, to be able to reach more of the innumerable destinations worth visiting in the area. Rome is easily reachable by train, driving to the nearby station of Orte and taking one of the frequent trains - 40 minute ride.
