Going to Parco dei Mostri in Bomarzo from Rome was not easy to arrange, however it is worth it! With the help of a tour guide I found through a tourism site for Viterbo, I arranged a taxi from our door in central Rome for 3+ our guide for 240 eu and the expert tour guide for 90.00 eu. I... More

It is not near the train station. It is not a short walk either. Taking any kind of drugs there is not a good idea. Walked back to the front gates and they were locked. Dumbfounded, I had to climb over a very high fence with spikes at the top to get out. Locals saved me. I have never before... More

I have been twice and the drive there is almost as much fun as the park itself. Also in the town just out side there are a number of small cafes by an old building that has fantastic doors.

My family and I are so glad that we found this park. My teenage girls loved the sculptures and the grounds, and found the story of the entire place very romantic and enchanting. We went in October, after a slight rain, and it was one of the greenest places I've ever seen! This was worth the side trip...the trip itself... More

First off ten euros to enter is ridiculous for this mini park that is infested with children and babies of all ages who don't really care about the park that their parents drag them to go to. Not to mention there was no ATM or way to pay with card. Also the fact that it is a park it was... More

this recently rediscovered ancient garden is probably unique; its 500 year history hidden by the seeming monstrous works which could be spayed concrete but remarkable hewn in-situ from the local rock for the most part.- anyone interested in the deeper facets of Renaissance life in the battle between the papacy and florence must do this walk, allow several hours and...

I visited the park with my mom and husband about 2 hours before closing, and we had such a fun time (I recommend going late in the day because there were only a couple other people there). I had pretty low expectations and didn't know if we'd be paying 10 euro per person for a 20 minute visit, but the... More

I have visited the park 1 hour before closing, so I had to be quick to see everything. The entrance is under the Etruscan city of Bomarzo, a village on a hill. Parking is free, and there are plenty of parking places. You get a map of the whole park at the entrance, so you don't get lost. The most... More

Built as a tribute by the count orsini for the love of his wife centuries ago this magical garden is peppered with intriguing huge sculptures of all sorts. It was a Lost garden rediscovered and recovered in the thirties I think. You can lose yourself in this woodland garden for a few hours at least.... You could stay longer and... More
