Ever wondered what a Renaissance-era amusement park would be like? Go to Parco dei Mostri and you'll learn. Wonderfully shaded, with winding pathways, and gurgling streams. Plus, you get fantastic, gigantic sculptures, off-kilter buildings, cool places to hang out, and more. A map is included with your entrance so that you can find all of the hidden treasures. Great place... More

Mystery, charming, a bit crazy, inspiring experience for all family. Take your time, picnic bag and enjoy the visit to this fairytale park, full of mysterious creatures secrets hidden in the middle of the woods. Absolutelly worth visiting and spending half a day. Grate pictures too.

I have come to gardening late and, while I have learnt to create a vibrant visual form that responds to the various eco-climates where I have gardened, I am not much into Italian Renaissance gardens which are examples of displays of power. The garden at Bormarzo, though, I wanted to see. For one reason or another over the last 15... More

Incredible "fantastical" garden created centuries ago by a grieving widower in memory of his wife. Acres of impressive sculptures carved from rock outcroppings (that were already on site). You'll see the "crazy" slanted house, monsters mouth grotto, Jonah's whale -- and much much more -all in a beautiful natural setting. SO Worth a visit - but to see it -... More

It's out of the way, it's not cheap to get in, but it's Dali's favorite, that says something. Leave your reason behind, check your criticism at the door, and just enjoy the wonder like a school kid, which there were plenty when I was there. Seeing their pure joy made me forget that it is basically the grave for the... More

We had a great time in Bomarzo. The Park of Monsters must have been a fantastic park in in the 16th century. I would have loved to see it in its original splendor with all of its colors, the monsters must have been fun and scary. Exploring the park was relaxing, it's surrounded by woods and expect for children running... More

What a garden. We found this garden after watching a gardening programme a few years ago. It is a wonderful garden full of monstrous statues. It was relatively easy to park and the cost of entry reasonable. It took a while to walk to the garden and we did get lost even though we had a map. There are no... More

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
