Accommodations for Performers and Staff

Festival performers and staff will be in residence for the week at Sant’ Antonio, a former monastery located in the hills high above nearby Tivoli, leased by the British Landmark Trust from its current owners.


At Sant’ Antonio, the walls of a Roman villa, dated to about 60 BC and believed to have belonged to the poet Horace, survive up to the middle floor of the present house, itself begun about 850 AD. Franciscan monks have lived there, and Popes:

“. . . the simple rooms, each with a shuttered window opening on to the valley, the waterfall and Tivoli, itself; the upper belvedere, giving a first full taste of what...can still be recognized as the ‘loveliest view in the world.’” As the festival base, Sant’ Antonio will be the ideal residence from which to honor the legacy of Andrea Palladio and his years in Rome.
