The street continues up for another 2 blocks, eventually opening into the beautiful Borghese Gardens.

Villa Aurora Review

by Judy
Villa Aurora proved to be exactly what our family needed in Rome after 10 days of biking and sightseeing in southern Italy. There was plenty of room for the whole family to spread out and enjoy being in a quiet garden in the city. The location was at the top of Piazza del Popolo, so, easy to walk to lots of historical sights, shopping, and great restaurants nearby. Our host and house keeper met us at the villa when we arrived with a warm welcome and a freshly made fruit tart which the family enjoyed. Spaska, the housekeeper, proved to be a gem for us. She was warm and friendly and was at the villa daily for cleaning service for a couple of hours. The famous Ristorante Alfredo is less than .8 of a mile away of Via del Corso and it didn't disappoint. They invented the Fettucine Alfredo where we first went in 1989 and it still is excellent. Our teen-aged grandchildren who are foodies were impressed. Clemente alla Maddalena was a great lunch out of the hot sunny day and near lots of shopping and on our way to the Pantheon. Waiters were very friendly and the food was first rate if a bit pricey but worth it. Aside from historical sight seeing, eating and shopping, the real savior of our trip was Pat Byrne at Italy Perfect. She saved us by finding this wonderful villa 3 days before we left for Italy when our original apartment with another company cancelled on us. Pat also went the extra mile by sending us tips on sightseeing and some wonderful restaurants too.I have already referred many of our friends to Italy Perfect and I would certainly use Italy Perfect again in the future without hesitation. [We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

Villa Aurora Review

by Christine STL
The home we stayed in was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The daily housekeeping was a wonderful bonus. Everyone on property was exceptionally kind to us and upon arrival they had provided a few necessities as well as a fresh baked pie:) The location of the home is unbelievable...it is in the middle of a park, perched on a hill over looking Rome, it really couldn’t be any better! And the surrounding area is great with grocery stores nearby and a beautiful piazza with shops and dining galore as well as many beautiful old Churches to admire and pray within. My biggest complement however must go to Pat who literally saved my vacation. The property I had originally reserved for Rome was flooded by a pipe bursting and damaging the entire space so 36 hours before I was to leave for Rome I found Pat and she generously took control, found this amazing home for us and arranged a private English speaking driver and very quickly had everything reserved and under control. To me she is an angel in disguise and completely saved a trip that felt doomed! Thank you Pat!! [Thank you. We were delighted to be able to save the situation so you could stay in such a lovely place! The Italy Perfect Team]

Pantheon (25 mins Walking)
Must-visit. This temple to all the gods (pan-theon in Greek) breathes history starting with its architecture from 2000 years ago. It is the only complete monument from Roman times. Built of concrete, the hemispherical roof is of one piece with its hole in the center.
