Parco Villa Gregoriana, Tivoli

4.7
#2 of 53 in Parks in Province of Rome
Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • Perfect fusion at Tivoli high. The impetuous force of water that comes out from the rock and flows into the void of a jump of dozens of meters. We descend from the lanes and there are the remains of Roman history. And then down until another branch of the Aniene River which flows into a cave. Children in the shoulder.

  • It is about half an hour drive from Rome. For the entrance fee you pay 7 euros and friendly staff. You get good information at the entrance. To view the entire park quiet you definitely need 1.5 hours. In the park there are several places where you can drink water.

  • Is Yes, luckily the Fai there is, otherwise it would have been even a place abandoned to itself where the incivility of some people, the decay and the indifference of the institutions would have made by masters. That being said, the place is wonderful where nature and history come together in one embrace, is a place worth visiting. I recommend walking shoes. And last, but not least, a eulogy to be done to Make and people with commitment and passion dealing with structures like this throughout Italy. Thank you

  • 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.
