Neglected piece of history

It could be one of the most interesting place to visit, at the heart of ancient Rome, but its degraded state and poor maintenance make it not worth a visit

This is a lovely "green island" in the heart of Rome, if you are tired of the river of tourists around the Colosseum or the hot sunshine in busy Eternal City. You can walk nice grass walkways and rest under the shadow of large trees. Just behind the Colosseum, there the park starts you can find the Oppio Caffè (on... More

We wanted to spend some time in the park to rest after walking around the city, but the park was a huge disappointment. It's unkept, the trash is everywhere, there are a lot of homeless and strange people. As soon as we saw the state of it, we just quickly walked across to get to the Colloseum, it's the only... More

Its summer and the park is dry. The grass is overgrown and unkept. The park is littered with trash and dozens of homeless people, many who live here. It is the only place in Rome I have felt unsafe. The ruins on the high edge of the park are boarded up with high wire fences presumably to keep the indigent... More

Lovely grass walkways and rest spots under large cool trees. Nice route when walking through this part of town, with no selfie stick resellers!

Considering the importance of this site (Nero's Palace followed by public baths) its disappointing to see it in its current state. The park feels very unsafe and I'm gobsmacked the Eyewitness Guide to Rome guides visitors through it. It's full of homeless who congregate here to rest with the surrounding fences covered in their washed clothes. To top it off... More

Is it really a park? Uhm, there was grass and trees. And hundreds of homeless guys! They are sleeping everywhere. They have laundry drying on the fences. Not a nice park at all.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
