It really couldn’t be any better!
A private luxury villa set in the heart of Rome with a large garden and spectacular views. A true oasis that is a rare find in such historic sylvan setting.
The villa is tucked away on a small street that gently rises from Piazzale Flaminio. Go up one block to a private gated entry to enter the verdant grounds of this special retreat, so close and yet so far from the hustle and bustle of central Rome. The street continues up for another 2 blocks, eventually opening into the beautiful Borghese Gardens.
Experience the best of city and country at Villa Aurora, situated on a beautiful 7 acre noble estate with all of Rome at your doorstep. There are a few other villas, owned by the same family for many centuries, on the estate each situated with maximum privacy and security.
The Piazza del Popolo and Spanish Step area is yours to enjoy from this amazing location tucked away in the heart of Rome. Located just above Piazzale Flaminio and backing up to the Borghese Gardens, enjoy Rome from a rare and exclusive vantage point that few visitors to Rome get to experience.
The large garden provides an unusually ample amount of outdoor space and gives guests an opportunity to enjoy a bit of La Dolce Vita with meals at the large patio table that seats up to 10 people.
Refined and sophisticated decor that befits the special location makes Villa Aurora a terrific vacation home for families and friends.

Our Guest Reviews
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.

A complete save!
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!!
