Create an itinerary including Parco Villa Gregoriana
The avenues and abundant gardens of Parco Villa Gregoriana seem to grow wild around the villa. However, the area wasn't nature's idea. It was commissioned as a park in 1826 by Pope Gregory XVI. It fell into ruin in the late 20th century, but reopened to much fanfare in 2005. The river forms two waterfalls that flow through the thick greenery. Walk through the woodlands of the villa and follow the paths through the caves of Neptune and the Sirens. These open up into gorges with cascades on your way to the park's highlight: the Great Waterfall.

  • I didn't know the place, but it was great. It's cool during the hot summer days and the waterfall is very pleasant. Definitely a good destination for the family, but it can be hard for the young kids (my daughter is 4)
  • Lovely place! Very big villa to walk in. A lot of nature to get away from the daily life in the city. Peaceful. Good price!
  • Gorgeous Parc, path pretty well maintained. Can be a little rough in parts. Worth the walk. A great day trip to get some fresh air and break from busy city life.
  • Lots of steps but and awesome walk along beautiful gardens with historic meaning. Get yourself comfy shoes to hike and your camera ready. The round trip from Rome is 6€ and the places there are very good.
  • Well worth the hour train ride out of Rome to see this beautiful man-made nature reserve. Well maintained and so much fun to explore, you'll definitely want to figure out your panoramic camera for this place. To visit, you should wear sensible trainers/walking shoes and be ready for some uneven ground and lots of steps/hills.
