This Parco and Garden is absolutely my favorite in Italy! After many years of traveling, I was able to visit with an Italian Architect and the drive and trip were a great highlight. The woods and grounds are amazing, be prepared to walk for hours with a map in hand. The sculptures carved from stone are absolutely amazing, like nothing... More

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours, walking around an ancient garden looking at fantastical sculpture. The entrance fee was €10 each ( under 13 was a cheaper price), we were given a map in English which had descriptions of the sculptures on the back. The whole family enjoyed it. They have a small gift shop/... More

I had read the reviews of this park, and I was really looking forward to seeing it. What a letdown! Yes, it is 400+ years old, but it is in a terribly run-down condition. Many of the huge carvings do not have enough stone left to be able to tell what they are supposed to represent. There is no evidence... More

The Monster Park is an amazing and unique collection of large stone carvings and monuments within a wooded location. It takes about an hour to walk around, although you could take much longer but visitors do need to be quite mobile. This attraction can be enjoyed for the stone carvings themselves which are amazing or for the natural setting. There... More

Bomarzo is not so far from Viterbo and Villa Lanta outside of Viterbo - and if you already are in this area you should spend the extra hours to see this wonderful park. A peaceful place, and under the trees it is a sanctuary in the heat of summer. Very suitable for children. This place is a hidden treasure, food... More

This is a fascinating place. 'Monster Park' is a misnomer - really this is a fantastic pleasure garden laid out by a clearly very sophisticated intellectual. On one level you can look at it as a collection of curios - a huge stone turtle, or a topsy-turvy house. But it doesn't take long before you can see that a great... More

Well worth a visit from Bomarzo, a charming little town in Northern Latium, perched up on a cliff and close to where Latium, Tuscany and Umbria all meet. A couple of kilometers outside town, you can visit this enchanting and enchanted wood, the vision of one smart Renaissance nobleman, who created a very unstructured un-Renaissance garden, populated with sculptures of...

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

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.

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.
