Weird memorable park

Very hot day but shady spots in this strange atypical garden from 1600s. It would have been helpful for a more mapped out route of the statuary.

Not so much monsters as a feat of imagination completed in 1552! Forms and figures created out of natural rock. The crooked house really does give you a very strange sensation. Travel without a car is tricky. We took the train to Attigliano-Bomarzo thinking this would be a short walk from the park, however it's 8k! But the kindness of... More

We went to Parco dei Mostri 22.07.16 because our Hotel recomended it and it was close by. We thought it was not enough value for the price and the area was not well maintained. Sadly this was the first money (20€) we spent in Italy that we regretted.

Magical place and great fun for children! It was very hot when we visited but there are lots of shaded areas and we made use of the air conditioned cafe too. Well worth the drive to find it especially if you are staying close to Rome and fancy a trip out.

Located off the beaten path but well worth finding via traveling on narrow roads.Once close enough, signs did help. We had planned on a picnic, but it became too hot. They allowed us to "picnic" in their air conditioned cafeteria. These sculptures were built in the 16th century as a memorial to his wife, not to please but to astonish!... More

I saw a postcard of the face above and knew I needed to see it for myself. What a strange and wonderful place. The statues rise from the ground and are remarkable. Other reviewers said the map was not to scale and BOY were they right. The walk is up and down with statues in unexpected places. Worth a detour... More

Meh. Just average for me. A whopping 10 Euro per person admission fee dampened my spirits from the get go - and they would only give us one fairly useless map between two people. There are no information placards anywhere in the park so it doesn't make for a very informed visit - just one or two sentences on the... More

Fantastical landscape of magical divine/heroic sculptures ('monsters' a horrible trivialization of the content), whose magic is enhanced both by the centuries-old history of the project and the extraordinary inaccuracy of the site maps provided, so that you see the other visitors wandering (like you) happily-but-bemusedly around as they peer incredulously at their site maps and wonder at their lack of...

This park is worth a visit from Rome. It is an unique example of art and culture of the 16th century.

Apparently built by a duke in memory of his wife about 500 hundred years ago, this is beautiful park filled with strange, giant eye catching statues. Near the small town of Bomarzo, it was easy to find, check it on your map or gps, but it's well marked with plenty of parking. There's an entrance fee, reasonable, with a gift... More
