Nice place to relax

This park is very huge. It's a perfect place to escape from city. There's a lake with cute swimming turtles and birds. You can just sit and enjoy nature :)

Trastevere's big secret: Villa Doria Pamphili - 445 acres of natural park with a splendid villa, gardens, walking trails, spectacular views and fresh, fresh air in the midst of the Rome metro area. If you can find it, you will never forget the pleasant surprise.

The villa was part of the TripAdvisor recommendations we wrote ourselves, as implemented, and recommendation proved to be an interesting tour. The first part of the Audio Guide interesting stories about the Pope, centuries ago, on his second degree, etc., and the shift in the rooms and corridors with various exhibits and interesting (especially the picture of the Pope looking...

We had an orienteering event there, so we ran all over the park. It's huge with small buildings, fountains, walls and the villa itself amazing. You can spend your whole day there if the weather is nice. Definitely recommended.

I didn't visit the villa itself, partly because I couldn't sort out where the entrance was! The not great labeling is the only reason I didn't give the park 5 stars. It's also a bit tricky to reach, so just plan ahead or you could hire a taxi. But I may have just been having a ditzy morning. The park... More

the park in general had an air of neglect about it, I am sure if you were a local and wanted to jog or ride it would be good but as a visitor, stick to Borghese gardens instead

I'm really not an art gallery sort of person but my wife and daughter wanted to visit so they dragged me along. I was astonished at the galleries which were completely filled with art or mirrors to create a visual treat. The audio guide was first class.

It's true, as one reviewer comments, that this park may not be as well maintained as most European (capital) city parks, but it's still lovely and well away from the crowds (I got the feeling that it's mostly locals who frequent this space). I nearly gave it 3 stars because signage and maps are non-existent, so it's easy to get... More

It's difficult to reach by walking or transit, not very well maintained, just a good place for jogging. Surely there are more interesting things to do in Rome.
