Sixteenth-century villa that remembers the landscape of the largest park of Villa Pamphilj. Wonderful to rest while staying near the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus. With a little luck you might even know the very nice turtles that live there!

“The hill was the seat of one of the villages from which Rome was built, and the memory of this sort of civil nobility was still alive in the Republican era, according to an inscription found at the Sette Sale, at the Baths of Trajan, which mentions the restoration of the sacellum compitale done at the expense of the inhabitants (de pecunia montanorum)]. In the Augustan subdivision of the city, Mons Oppius was included in Regio III, called Isis et Serapis from the great temple that stood on its south-eastern slopes, between today's Via Labicana and Via Merulana. Already home (in the direction of the Vicus Suburanus) of the Portico of Livia, the height was occupied in the Neronian era by the Domus aurea and by the subsequent Terme di Tito and Traiano. In the Christian era, the Titulus Eudoxiae (today's San Pietro in Vincoli) and the Titulus Equitii (now San Martino ai Monti) settled there. Today it belongs to the Monti district, of which it is the green lung, and is between Via Labicana, via degli Annibaldi, via Cavour, via Giovanni Lanza, via Merulana. The surrounding streets were intensely built between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, while the archaeological emergencies (as far as they remained, at least from the plundering) were included in the vast Parco del Colle Oppio, which descends towards the Colosseum valley.”
