We enjoy public parks and focused on them during our recent trip to Rome. Villa Doria Pamphilji was a delightful discovery and instantly become one of our favourites in Rome. The landscape is varied and interesting, as are the people and the dogs. This would be a great place for just spending a day reading, snacking and sleeping in the... More

The park is immense, but still difficult to find due to no signs whatsoever, therefore making you unsure where to park for the best access point. There are plenty of benches to sit on as you walk around, and a multitude of things to see. The villa itself is beautiful, and a pity that you can't visit it. There are... More

Stunning park, a lovely retreat from the chaotic city and quite easy to get to if you have access to the Number 8 tram or bus (get off one stop before Casaletto and take a left up the main road till you see an entrance). The villa itself was also lovely but on Sunday when I went it was shut... More

The park is huge and very beautiful. You can spend a few hours waking around, occasionally sitting down on the benches or just on the grass. The villa itself is marvelous with a really interesting fountain in front of it. Tourists don't seem to frequent this place, so you'll meet locals, who walk their dogs or kids, go jogging etc....

We walked to the park from our apartment, along roads with no pavements, so quite scary at times. However the gardens overall are well worth the trip, with wonderful views. No access to the villa, sadly, or the gardens, or any reason why, but there was enough in the park to keep us interested. We then walked down the hill... More

One of the great pleasures of Rome is that it is so easily escapable. The Doria Pamphili park is not the only. Don't miss the botanical gardens of the Villa Corsini. Orvieto is only a skip up the road. Tivoli and its neighbor the Villa Adriana. The twin Bernini churches of Albani Lazio & Castle Gondolpho. The Via Appia and... More

The Villa Doria Pamphili is a seventeenth-century villa with what is today the largest landscaped public park in Rome, Italy. It is located in the quarter of Monteverde, on the Gianicolo (or the Roman Janiculum), just outside the Porta San Pancrazio in the ancient walls of Rome where the ancient road of the Via Aurelia commences. We had wanted to... More

After recently moving to Rome for 9 months, discovering this amazing park only 15 minutes walk from my house was a result! It really is huge, I have only recently been around the whole thing. There are places to relax, forests to explore, the stunning house to see and lots of interesting fountains too. The church is really stunning and... More

It is a very long way out there. And very few non-Romans go. But it is a pleasant walk west beyond the Porta S. Pancrazio. The villa itself is the domain of the Portuguese, or something like that; so you can not get into it. But you can see it. It is the park beyond that is the draw. The... More

We wanted to visit the Doria Pamphilj Park and tried to prepare for the trip via map and google. We only could find out that no public transport takes you there so we decided to take a bus that gets us as close as possible. We started at piazza St. Pietro and took the bus from Cavalleggeri down the Gregorio... More
