A delight!

We had some extra time and decided to visit on our way down to Rome. I enjoyed this place a lot and would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Probably, the best garden we've seen in Italy, Bomarzo is definitely worth a visit. It is small, but the images are very memorable.

The Parc is very clear, nice, but missing some history about, some indications and the map is not so clear. Nice walk for a familly with children or without. I think that the price is little bit to much...

Just 10 minutes from the A1 freeway, is a very interesting park with many rock formations in the shape of monsters and mythological creatures. While the brochures show people inside the mouth of one of the large rock monsters, it is one of the few you can climb on/in or touch. There is a pathway to walk along and you... More

When you enter the woodlands at this park, you step into history, as well as into the subconscious of the fascinating man who made the garden. In 1552, Vicino Orsini, a retired soldier, and Duke of Orsino, began to transform the enormous tufa boulders which were scattered across his property into fanciful and sometimes alarming statues. Artisans carved the living... More

It's a lovely place. For obvious reasons, maintaining such park is not easy but I found it nice. They should put signs to indicate the route one should take. Dogs are not allowed, OF COURSE: WOULD YOU TAKE YOUR DOG TO THE FORI ROMANI? I guess one can take their dogs to public parks: it's called common sense. They should... More

Go on a nice day and enjoy this beautiful park for a few hours! I read the reviewers that felt it was overpriced, but I don't think you will feel that way if you give yourself time to hang out...Have a Tea Party. The sculptures are fantastic and filled with humor and mythological beasts. We went with our 10 year... More

This is an excellent day trip from Rome or on the way out of Rome into Tuscany. If you're an art fan, you'll definitely enjoy the connection to Dali. But these sculptures stand out on their own merit as well. The star on the show, in my opinion, is the hell mouth. Although it's a bit infested with mosquitos inside,... More

This was a fun and unexpected trip. I was there in November 1996 and my friends and I had the place almost to ourselves. The Monsters were very interesting.
