Parco Villa Gregoriana, Tivoli

4.7
#2 of 106 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.

  • It's a very nice villa for all its particular vegetation many schools bring students to visit and for those smaller driving and engaging only advise comfortable shoes

  • During the tour we saw three aristocratic villas. This was most unusual at all. Arranged on the slopes of the Valley, so it looks like a piece of nature. Recommend visit this Villa first, because you may not have enough power to go up and down, which the visitor must do.

  • Through the narration of the guide I got to know one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. The history and allure of this mysterious place enhances its uniqueness. Anyone can be kidnapped by what the eyes see and admire

  • Amazing and charming place. It looks like entering in an enchanted forest. During the opening day by FAI, we were initially guided by the manager of the Park who explained us the history of Villa Gregoriana and how it has been luckily brought to live again after a long time. You will have the chance to see the artificial and amazing waterfall of the Aniene, Tivoli's river and walk through the Park to admire its beauty with centenary trees, caves, water streams etc. It is not the easiest walk, walking up and down but definitely worthy!!must see!
  • This is a wonderful Villa in Tivoli (city nearby Rome). It's a very green Park like a gorge full of waterfalls and ruins. It's very impressive and unique.
  • The park is atmospheric and you could feel as though you were walking through a site that is still sacred to woodland spirits. By turning right at the station and walking a few minutes you will easily find it; and you will exit it at the other end of a gorge, which is the perfect place to start visiting the town and Villa D'Este
  • Amazing walk. Lots of steps, but rewarded by great views and waterfalls. Even 2 caves with waterfalls in them! Free for National Trust UK members.
  • Meh. Not too impressed. The place is not kept up to international standards. We have seen better falls and gardens. Personally, I think it is overrated.
