Additional Location Information
First of all it is due to say that car is necessary.
The villa is just 2 km from Formello village centre, it takes about 15 minute to walk down, less if the wind is at your back. Located in the Regional Park of Veii, Formello is a small village and his “centro storico”, with narrow streets and ancient houses, is worth to be visited. Do not forget to visit also the Church of San Lorenzo (10th-11th centuries) and Palazzo Chigi built by the Orsini, probably over the pre-existing castrum in the eleventh century. It houses the Archaeological Museum of the Countryside of Veii. The famous ancient road Via Francigena passes here. The route passes through England, France, Switzerland and Italy. The route was known in Italy as the 'Via Francigena' ('the road that comes from France') or the 'Via Romea Francigena' ('the road to Rome that comes from France').In mediaeval times it was an important road and pilgrimage route for those wishing to visit the Holy See and the tombs of the apostles Peter and Paul. Nowadays, in Spring and Summer, many groups of pilgrims, walking from the far North, take this road to reach Rome.
In Formello you find a small supermarket, shops, banks, restaurants , pizzerie, bars and caffees. “Bar Lai” and “Bar Sabatino” are famous for their yummy ice creams. At few steps from the house, half way between the villa and Formello, enjoy a tasty pizza at “La Pineta” restaurant.
Bigger, well stocked supermarkets and shops are in “Le Rughe Mall”, 6 km further on via Cassia 2bis northwards.
Formello is a good location to use as a base for touring first of all to Rome, only 25 km far, than to Bracciano lake with its waterfront old villages Bracciano, Anguillara and Trevignano - you can be there in 30 minute maximum-. Viterbo also is worth to be visited and so many others Etruscan villages and natural beauties in the north of Lazio Region.

2 metro train stations are 15 - 20 minutes driving from the villa.
