Taverna Palace

Palazzo Taverna is the ideal venue for hosting weddings, cocktails, business meals, meetings and exclusive work encounters.

The catering service is personally curated by Stefanina Aldobrandini, who, for over 20 years, has recreated an atmosphere of splendor and efficiency reminiscent of the hospitality of grand private homes of times past, thanks to highly qualified staff and the use of linens, porcelain, antique silverware and period livery.


Ancient residence of the Orsini and Borgia

The residence is located in the heart of Rome, between Piazza Navona and Castel Sant’Angelo.

A short ascent leads to the courtyard in front, there is an elegant fountain by A.Casoni (1615), characterizing one of the most secret and unusual corners of Rome. Immediately to the right, at the end, there are 19th-century buildings with a medieval and Renaissance style.

Passing the “Torre Augusta” (1880) and a large hall, through a Renaissance style portal, you reach a small courtyard with an external staircase, a porch and three large arches on columns with fine capitals and an upper balcony, partly enclosed.

Inside, in the large reception rooms of the piano nobile, in addition to valuable antique furniture, you can admire the painting collections of Sebastiano Ricci and Rosa da Tivoli.

Palazzo Taverna, mentioned by Dante in the Divine Comedy, was built in the 15th century on the ruins of Giordano Orsini’s fortress, where the family dominated the area to the banks of the Tiber river.

The palace then became the focal point for the family’s “representation” policy and was the residence of ambassadors and cardinals: Ippolito d’Este received Bernardo and Torquato Tasso there, while Cardinal Luciano Bonaparte hosted Empress Eugenia and Father Gioacchino Belli.

Bought by Maurice of Savoy, who endeavored to embellish it, Palazzo Taverna subsequently passed (in the early 1600s) to the Gabrielli, who gave it its current appearance. Finally, the last change of ownership saw the Palazzo coming into the ownership of the Taverna family.
