Villa Pamphili Rome’s largest landscaped public park, Villa Pamphili, was a resplendent 17th-century villa before it became state property. The historic villa is where the Italian government officially receives guests, while its 450 acres of rolling hills, panoramic terraces, and historic villas are where Romans come daily for picnics, jogs, dog walks, and relaxation. The bucolic setting includes the remains of a Roman aqueduct, medieval structures, and baroque architecture and sculpture.
