Casina Valadier, Rome
Casina Valadier stands on the highest point of the Pincian Hill in the heart of Villa Borghese. The building takes its name from its designer, the Roman architect Giuseppe Valadier.
In the 1920s it was Rome’s most fashionable haunt.
Casina Valadier’s album of honour contains the autographs of celebrities such as Gandhi, Re Farouk, Strauss, Pirandello and many others.
Today, in addition to the upstairs restaurant and the terraces that made it famous, the Casina also has a garden coffee shop, an elegant winery in the Sala Romana and a sophisticated first floor bar that is perfect for aperitifs and after-dinner drinks “with a view”.
Overlooking Rome, immersed in green and brimming with history, Casina Valadier is one of the most fascinating places in the city.
In order to fully appreciate the panoramic view, it is recommended that you book a terrace table.
