Roman Villa Silj is an outstanding and dazzling place to spend any stay in Rome. We took our eighth-grade students for an educational trip and it proved the perfect location because of its privacy but also connectedness to the city, however I would absolutely return for a private vacation with friends or family. The staff looked after our needs and accommodated some of our weird ones, and also brought us in with warm hospitality and passion for the history and beauty of the location. Highly, highly recommended.
Recommended for: Sightseeing, tourists without a car, age 55+, families with teenagers, pet owners, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway.

Excellant Location. Close to Rome. Didnt need to hire a car. Bus stops right outside the gate.
We went with 1 teenager, 1 toddler, 1 baby and 7 adults plenty of room in villa for all us. The pool area is great you could spend your whole holiday just lazing at the side of it. Plenty of cool places in and around the gardens.
Our bedroom opened out onto the terrace where we had breakfast every morning.
The owner provided us with a meal and it was out of this world it was even better than any 5 star restaurant. They were very helpful. A pleasure to do business with.
The villa was clean and well maintained and there was plenty of information of things to do in and around the villa.
I would recomend going to the Colosseum and St Peter's Square. Be careful when visting The Spanish Steps as it is full of pick pockets, but dont let this ruin your holiday.
Make sure you bring sensible shoes with you. The stalls around all the street are always chaper than the shops and alway haggle.
