An intimate room with a four poster bed. Laid out before guests, here lies all the history of Rome.
The Villa Medici is one of the highest points of the city, and in ancient times was part of the Gardens of Lucullus. In 1570 Cardinal Ferdinando de Medici restored the villa and its gardens, and they enjoyed their greatest moment of splendour: while the villa was enriched with marble, collections and spectacular façades, the garden became the most elegant walk in the city, and remained so until the advent of Napoleon. Since 1803 it has been the site of the Académie de France, a place revered by important contemporary artists.
