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.

  • An unexpected place, rich in history and magic. Between uphill and downhill lanes stand fantastic views, waterfalls, caves, tunnels and dense vegetation. A little walk suitable for those who are lazy, but applies to the spell that leaves you inside. Thanks to the Fai to have it returned.

  • Since ancient times the city of Tibur, River Valley and waterfall were known as the best place in ancient Rome, VIPs here liked to relax. This whole area is teeming with history and myth. The Park is huge, lots of trails and routes, caves, waterfalls, a river. Need shoes without heels, comfortable.

  • We took advantage of the FAI spring days to visit this place, which is an archaeological Park and a nature reserve. Must visit for scholars of art history, which will recognize many romantic canvases these glimpses absolutely picturesque. We stood on one side and pulled on the other, completing the entire journey. For me, I'm a little lazy, experience was tiring (especially the ascent!) but still doable.

  • 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!
