Most never see this historic gem, but its well worth the trip to see the amazing history of Rome's early water supplies. The park is on the edge of the city along the old Appian Way and is accessible from the A line of the Metro. I recommend getting off at the Lucio Sestio stop. A street map is helpful to get your bearings, but its a short walk from there to the entrance of the park on Via Lemonia which is on the left hand side of Via Lucio Sestio. You can walk from there to the other end of the park where you will find the largest section of the Acqua Claudia (1st century) standing. You can also see the water still flowing into a small pond from the Acqua Felice (16th century).
If you don't want to retrace your steps, you can return to the Metro at the Giulio Agricola station. That station can be found by walking down the street directly in front of the large church.
Besides the Acquedotti themeselves, you might consider bringing a little picnic or wine and cheese as the park is a nice place ot relax a bit. The weekends will find the park quite active with families, bikers and joggers. In one section of the park, there is a little restaurant and bar, kiddie park, and often on the weekends some kind of festival with all sorts of things being sold in booths. .
