Rome is the City of History, a place for Romance and a town where you can eat great authentic food. Walking through the streets of the Center of Rome on a sunny day is one of the greatest pleasures in life, but few people know that Rome has plenty of Gardens, Villas and Parks, making it one of the greenest cities in the world.


Walkable Rome wants to draw up a list of these Gardens, Villas and Parks, so that every visitor of Rome and everyone who’s planning to visit the Eternal City will be more informed about the natural heritage of the Italian Capital.


The latter, Parco Regionale dell’Appia Antica, which is located in southern Rome, deserves a special mention, since it includes many different parks such as the Valle della Caffarella (Entrances: Via della Caffarella, Via Latina, Largo Tacchi Venturi), the Parco degli Acquedotti (a very characteristic and beautiful spot for walking and bike tours, but even just for an open-air lunch; Entrances: Via Lemonia, Viale Appio Claudio, Via Viviani), the Parco di Tor Fiscale (Entrances: Via dell’Acquedotto Felice 120, Via di Torre Branca), the Tenuta di Tor Marancia (Entrances: Piazza Lante, Via Belloni/Via Aristide Sartorio, Viale Londra) and the Parco Archeologico delle Tombe della Via Latina (Via dell'Arco di Travertino 151, 00178 Rome; Website at this link).

In conclusion, Walkable Rome kindly invites to visit, if not all, some of these wonderful Gardens, Villas and Parks of Rome. These natural and cultural itineraries in the Eternal City represent an inestimable heritage for Rome, considering that many of them contain Museums, Art Galleries and monuments from different historic periods.
