“Great place for a relaxed afternoon”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

My partner and I went for a romantic stroll on New Year's Day. Green grass, flocks of sheep, imposing Roman ruins and a stunning sunset, all within easy reach. We went by subway up to Cinecittà, so we took a longer walk starting from a little-frequented area and we loved every minute of it. Not a must-see, but a great place to unwind if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. I believe you can rent a bike somewhere in the park, that could also be fun.

“enchanting local historical park”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

This park is out of the most visited locations in Rome but it is very interesting and welll connected with public transportation (subway A stops in Lucio Sestio or Giulio Agricola or Subaugusta). You need at least a couple of hours to visit this always open and free park where you can walk and admire 5 huge acqueducts on two lines (There is also a local little river and small lake) . There you see still what the grand tour travellers saw in the past.

“Loved this park”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We enjoyed walking through this park. The aquaducts were incredible to see. There are quite a few benches throughout the park to sit and relax. Just make sure you bring water and snacks because there is only a couple of waterfountains inside. One is near the dog park closer to the north end of the park and there is another beside the playground that is located along the east side (street side) of the park.

“Aqueduct Park”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

This was a wonderful, away from the crowds, experience. A 20 minute metro trip, made so simple by excellent directions with photos from "Ron In Rome" http://www.roninrome.com/%20sites-and-attractions/aqueduct-park-in-rome We loved walking along the aqueducts, imagining them towering over people in ancient times. There's a neat contrast between the ancient one which stretches off into the distance seemingly forever, and the more 'modern' (touched up in medieval times) one that you can walk over on stairs and still see some water coming out of. There are wildflowers all around and a nice park where you can jog or sit and relax.

“And the water still flows here!”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

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. .
