Villa Sora is a villa in Frascati, Italy. This villa was built at the end of 16th century by Giacomo Boncompagni, duke of Sora, natural son of Pope Gregory XIII. In the central hall there are painted fresco decorations of Cavalier D'Arpino(17th century). Frescoes by Flemish artists are in two lodges, opposite the villa (Cornelius Scut and Timan Craft).

The villa nowadays houses a school of the Salesians.
