Tips från lokalbefolkningen
Wide public park where you can enjoy walking and running far away from the city mood. There are some playground as well and a romantic lake. It was the country residence of a ancient roman nobility family, so you can have an idea about their life style.
The biggest public park in Rome, once the country retreat of the Pamphili Family. Pic-Nice, nice walks and cycling.
For a beautiful run, or a walk, or bicycle tour.... Is the biggest park inside Rome. From here you are really close to the Roman block "Gianicolo" and "Trastevere". We suggest to do all in one day.
look for the Vivi Bistro to have a quick coffee there or lunch the food is really good, they have also BIO meals and they can also prepare a pic-nic basket depending on the seasons...
There's also a nice cafe in the park where you can have lunch or just have a coffe or a drink.
One of the greenest, widest and most relaxing spots in town: Villa Pamphili a beautiful park with trails good for running, walking and biking or having a pic-nic at the artificial lake with turtles, ducks and swans. you can reach the park by feet in few minutes by walk.

Point of Interest
“Piazza Navona is built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, built in the 1st century AD, and follows the form of the open space of the stadium. The ancient Romans went there to watch the agones ("games"), and hence it was known as "Circus Agonalis" ("competition arena"). It is believed that over time the name changed to in avone to navone and eventually to navona. Defined as a public space in the last years of 15th century, when the city market was transferred there from the Campidoglio, Piazza Navona was transformed into a highly significant example of Baroque Roman architecture and art during the pontificate of Innocent X, who reigned from 1644 until 1655, and whose family palace, the Palazzo Pamphili, faced the piazza. It features important sculptural creations: in the center stands the famous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi or Fountain of the Four Rivers (1651) by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, topped by the Obelisk of Domitian, brought in pieces from the Circus of Maxentius; the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone by Francesco Borromini, Girolamo Rainaldi, Carlo Rainaldi and others; and the aforementioned Pamphili palace, also by Girolamo Rainaldi, that accommodates the long gallery designed by Borromini and frescoed by Pietro da Cortona. Piazza Navona has two other fountains. At the southern end is the Fontana del Moro with a basin and four Tritons sculpted by Giacomo della Porta (1575) to which, in 1673, Bernini added a statue of a Moor, wrestling with a dolphin. At the northern end is the Fountain of Neptune (1574) also created by Giacomo della Porta; the statue of Neptune, by Antonio Della Bitta, was added in 1878 to create a balance with La Fontana del Moro.”

“The Orange Trees Garden (Italian: Giardino degli aranci) is the name used in Rome to describe the Parco Savello. It is about 7,800 square meters and is located on the Aventine Hill. The park offers an excellent view of the city. The garden, as it is today, was designed in 1932 by Raffaele De Vico. It was constructed to offer public access to the view from the side of the hill, creating a new ‘’belvedere’’, to be added to the existing viewpoints in Rome from the Pincian Hill and the Janiculum. The garden, whose name comes from the many bitter orange trees growing there, extends over the area of an ancient fortress built near the basilica of Santa Sabina by the Savelli family between 1285 and 1287, which, in turn, was built over an old castle constructed by the Crescentii in the tenth century. A few steps from the Orange Garden, you will find a great surprise. From the keyhole of a historic building, you will be able to see the dome of St. Peter. The gate from which you can enjoy this view is inserted in the structure of the villa of the Priorato di Malta which overlooks the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta. The villa stands on the area that was a Benedictine monastery founded in 939 which passed to the Templars in the twelfth century but was stolen by Clement V and finally seized it in 1400 by Pope Paul II who granted it to the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.”
