Nice walk and rest stop

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

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

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.

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.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
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.
