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.

We had a wonderful time visiting Parco die Mostri and Villa Lante in the same day. They are two extremely different styles of landscape. This park is in a wonderful wooded location. The sculptures here blend right into the landscape. Monsters, giants, a giant turtles, elephants in battle ,nymphs and a tilted house were all a delight. Prince Pier Francesco... More

From the very first "monster" we came across, I was hooked! I love, love, love this place! I was so very fortunate that some friends were willing to drive the 1.5 hours from Rome to Bomarzo to visit this amazing "garden". If you have an opportunity to go, GRAB IT!

If you are in the area of Viterbo, don't pass this wonderful place. Just on the outskirts of the town of Bomarzo, the park lies in a sheltered valley and within its acres , houses a collection of wonderful 16th century sculptures & buildings that were built to astonish. They still do... Count Orsini had them created to mourn the... More

I have found this park fascinating because it brought back my memories from my travel to Asia. The park is located in the beautiful forest and the randomly dropped sculptures create the mysterious ambience. Very interesting place to visit.

The park in itself is beautiful and the setting of those old statues in nature is simply breathtaking. Adults enjoy figuring out the clues of the initiation ritual that obviously inspired the architect of the place whereas children will enjoy the park itself and the natural environment.

Well worth a visit, even with young children. The statues are fascinating for adults and children and the entrance fee was not excessive for what you see, considering the upkeep needed.

Without a car you need to do abit of forward planning to get to the Park of Monsters. The Cotral blue buses leave from the bus terminal 10 minutes walk from Porto Fiornetino gate. It only takes about 25 minutes Eur1.30 each way. You need to ask the bus driver to tell you when you reach Bomarzo and even then... More
