In the heart of ancient Rome, between the Colosseum and the Baths of Caracalla, there is an oasis of greenery and history on top of the Caelian Hill: Villa Celimontana. In the 500 was a vineyard, then became the lavish grounds of a noble villa, now houses the archaeological excavations, the remains of a Gothic temple and also the headquarters of the Italian Geographical Society.

The villa is not only idyllic retreat for a getaway from the busy city but also the mecca for all that jazz ‘s lovers is in Rome in the summer months. Villa Celimontana, in fact, is home from July to September, the most important jazz festivals in the city.
