Simply magic and fantastic!

It is the most beautiful park in Rome! Absolutely to visit with a lake, waterfall, palace and segret gardens!

We stayed about 1.5km away so was ideal for getting a couple of runs in while on weekend in Rome. You can make about 6-8km length going along main route through the park going from one end to diagonal opposite and crossing over from one side to the other with the pedestrian bridge towards the south over the main road...

Go here to run or walk or cycle. Do it. Dress warmly in winter of course, but it is still perfect for running. Close to Rome, it is a massive expanse of tranquil green trails.

The biggest park in Rome - you can go around for a whole day. However it's dangerous because of the bicycle riders: grown up man who are riding at high speed around the park and are a real hazard. The second point is that there aren't enough trees: the place is there but they don't plant trees. Don't miss the... More

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
