Parco Villa Gregoriana, Tivoli

4.7
#2 of 53 in Parks in Province of Rome
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.

  • Once again the Fai is a certainty. Super well kept Park. The view of the Temple of the Sibyl is magical. The falls are thrilling and wonderful caves. Vale super penalty

  • We did struggle to navigate among the thousands of signs to tourist signs to figure out then just visit once that revenue are two! The villa is a treat for lovers of nature, waterfalls and clean air but is not suitable for anyone. The slopes and the climbs are steep, difficult and complex trails especially for those not wearing hiking boots, trekking shoes and hat for someone who doesn't have to hide from the Sun. The journey takes about two hours but you can follow different paths stretching so the visit. The Temple of the Sibyl is wonderful and fascinating at the same time. Perfect TOILET services and drinking water fountains. Thanks to this wonder is revived.

  • A magnificent park, nice and well maintained, offering fantastic landscapes of all kinds from the falls to the wood. Very suitable for a romantic walk.

  • Very beautiful historic public garden, perfect for a nice walk in the afternoon. The waterfalls are just spectacular, and in the afternoon a large portion of the garden is in shadow. So it should be quite refreshing in summer. Be prepared to walk on a steep terrain, because the garden, which extends vertically, is built around a small valley with a pool at the bottom. To date, parts of the Villa are under maintenance, and only half of the pavement (from the main entrance, i.e. from the temple, to the pool) is in good condition. The entrance is quite pricey (9 euro), so let's hope this money goes for maintenance works.
  • 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.
  • A real delight. Easy to see how it inspired painters and poets.
  • Beautiful mix of nature and human activity. A beautiful landscape which was improved by different Roman emporers.
  • Beautiful place

Where to stay in Tivoli

Tivoli is so close to Rome that you can easily explore it from one of the capital city's comfortable budget hotels. If you wish to stay in Tivoli itself, consider booking your room at a family-run inn, an affordable alternative to the area's more expensive big-chain hotels. Most of the city's hotels are located outside the historical town center, so if you want quick access to Tivoli's tourist sites, try to stay near a public bus or train station, or consider renting a car for the duration of your trip.
