We found this park while we were looking for an elevated spot to view the Colosseum. First we went to Carrefour Express Supermercato on Via dei Santi Quatro to buy some items for a picnic lunch. If you select fruit, be sure to get it weighed and labeled before you get in line to pay.

Parco del Colle Oppio is just near the Colosseum. We had booked to see the Domus Aurea and had some time to spare before hand, so wandered around the gardens. The garden was created in 1938 and has plenty of shady spots with benches. Lovely quiet spot to take a rest from Romes busy streets. Unfortunately the park is taking... More

Encountered this park by coincidence as I was strolling my way towards Colosseum. Found it quite a beautiful place with gorgeous tall trees, beautiful colors, a lovely view, a fountain and also a dinking-water-fountain... At the time I was there (probably around 9-ish am on a saturday), there were a few joggers passing as well as some obvious tourists. It... More

No one can deny the magnificence of the view to the Colosseum itself. The food is not bad, however rather on the expensive side. The service is nice and kind. However the quality of the toilets is questionable and you have to expect long waiting hours in a queue to use them. Considering the location, it would deserve better quality.

My wife and I walked through the western side of this park en-route to a pizza place for lunch and it was the only time on our entire trip to Italy that we felt unsafe. We saw lots of homeless and "down on their luck" looking people sleeping on the ground, mumbling at us at we even were followed at... More

this park is one of the most important in Rome as its history. Although, it is abandoned again by authorities and left to poor immigrants that live inside.

Over the years we have walked around the Colosseum area many times and have never noticed Parco del Colle Oppio. The park is situated adjacent to the Collosseum near Vialle della Domus Aurea on one of the seven hill of Rome, Esquiline Hill. There are wonderful views back towards the Collosseum while walking up Vialle della Domus Aurea as you... More

Nice park near the Colosseum to relax and enjoy a view of the Colosseum. There was plenty of shade and many other travelers who packed small picnics to enjoy in the park. We also got some very nice photos of the colosseum from the park.

We were staying on the north side of the Oppian Hill Park (Parco di Colle Oppio) and walked through it several times on the way to the Colosseum and ancient Rome areas. It was quiet and relaxing with benches along the pedestrian road with views of the Colosseum and mature trees and lush grass. Also in the park is Domus... More
