At the top of the steep climb there's a good view, but not half as good as the orange gardens. Segways - €10 for half an hour, €15 for a hour - if visiting definitely worth a go, fab way to look around There's a...More

This park is huge, beautiful, historic, and best travelled by bike (or the like) unless you have a lot of time. Lots of acres large. Worth the trip if you have the time in Rome.

This is a good place if you won't to have some peace, but other than that there really isn't that much to see. Mostly sun burned grass (at July).

Grab a bottle of prosecco and your lover and sit under a tree while listening to live jazz music. It's such a refreshment from the tussle and bussle in Rome!

One of the few shaded areas in Rome so nice on a hot day, the park surrounding the villa is large with lots of trees, but can also be breezy and dusty. The villa is worth a stop.

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and

Having walked in and out of the park through Piazza Popolo I would say that would be a good option for you. From the piazza it is not a far walk and there was a little elevation but nothing too difficult. A taxi or uber can... More

The boats cost 3 euro for 20 minutes per person and there are discounts for kids. They don’t charge per boat, but per person, so don’t feel the need to couple up to save money.
