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.

This is such a lovely location in Rome but at a glance, common sense dictates that it's not prudent to linger--and especially not after nightfall. So near the Colosseum, it is almost impossible to conceive that this wonderful park could be such an unsavory place to spend any time. If you're here, enjoy the surroundings but above all, be careful.

The park itself is not very interesting, small kiosk to get a cappucino on sunny days. The nice view on the Colloseum is the best part of the parc. In evening and after sunset no safe place to go.

This park over the years continues to degrade. This is unfortunate as it could be one of the best parks in Rome. The park now seems to have become an uncontrolled dog park and if full of dog excrement even though the local children still play there. From what I seen it also seems the the local police have given... More

The area is not safe after dawn. The Domus aurea is nearby/underneath and is worth a stroll: the whole area is worth walking through.

We stayed in the hotel next door and our room looked out onto the park. We thought this would be great for our 2 year old during our stay in Rome. We were very disappointed, homeless people are sleeping throughout the park on benches etc. The playground was covered with graffiti. The park it self was big and walking through... More

Good if you like seeing sleeping homeless people, loads of pigeons, and rat spotting.

Our experience on a Saturday afternoon was not such a pleasant one. It was creepishly quiet, with the majority of its occupants (80%+) being sleeping homeless men. Plenty of pigeons to look at, but beware of the same size rat with a long tail hanging near the drain pipes. Don't go out of your way to visit this one.
