Nice small park which could be a real gem but is somehow abbondened. There are the barn of the garden keepers inside the garden and they do actually make some efforts to keep the plants (there are several interesting plants inside the park) looked after but the results aren´t up to their efforts. A lot of old palms have had... More

I happened to discover this park while researching the neighborhood of Trastevere prior to our 2-week visit to Rome. As we would be staying in Trastevere, I wondered what special places might lie across the Tiber from the Seven Hills of Rome. The Villa Sciarra sits high on the Janicolo, adjacent to the American Academy in Rome. From where we... More

Visited this small green park on the way up to the statue of Garibaldi. Was a nice, quiet area with an abundance of plant life. In one pond there was literally 20 turtles all visible at once! Would not go out of our way to come here again but is a nice area to visit if you are close.

My husband learned of this park on TripAdvisor.com, and we packed a lunch to be eaten there. Unfortunately we did not have exact directions and were quite exhausted and beaten by the sun, steep hills and steps by the time we finally found it. That said, it was absolutely well worth the trip! The garden is full of dusty gravel... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
