Parco Villa Gregoriana, Tivoli

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Garden
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. Plan your visit to Parco Villa Gregoriana and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tivoli tour planner.

  • A real delight. Easy to see how it inspired painters and poets.
  • Wonderful 80 meter descent from street level to beautiful waterfalls and vistas. Many steps down, and then of course, back up. Really need two hours minimum to see everything and enjoy it. Would have loved to have spent more time.
  • Beautiful mix of nature and human activity. A beautiful landscape which was improved by different Roman emporers.
  • Very nice park.
  • An enjoyable, energetic walk. Very well cared for with lovely, supportive staff. If you are a member of National Trust (UK) take your card!
