Maybe it is not an opcion for who visite Rome for few days, but to live the city with another air is really nice, Villa Ada is a big park where the romans used to go for jogging and sometimes for do a picnic, take some photos. I really like it! I think it could be a break of turists, because here you will not find them, you will find only locals

I walked in here, because I had some business at the University.

I entered on the Via Panama side, walked an hour, so didn't see too much of the park. But it was busy with walkers, joggers, dogs and their owners, lots of green space and quiet. You could hear the birds.

There's a nice cafe on Via Panama that's [art of the park.

You'll find Romans, not tourists, here. If you want to get a glimpse of everyday life in the Eternal City, stop in, have coffee at the cafe (which has bathrooms), walk around the extensive grounds, and enjoy a slower pace of life. Bike rentals are available: at the top of the park near the cafe, the bike rentals are less than half of what they cost at the lower end of the park near the amusements. There are play areas for kids, a lake, some architectural features not far from the Egyptian Embassy, exercise equipment, and picnic areas. Located near the Catacombs of Priscilla, the park is an oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

When Ilived in Rome, this was the park my Roman friends went to, and not the better known Villa Borghese which is packed with tourists. This is a great place to go for a walk or just sit and relax on the grass.

It's pretty far from any subway station, but there are several buses going here (like line 14 from Termini) or you can take the tram (lines 3 and 19).

I decided to walk through Villa Ada to get to the Catacombes di Priscilla. Took about 20-25 minutes and on a lovely sunny day, it was a little oasis away from Rome. The park is walled, so you can only enter at certain spots. I entered at Via Panama and walked clockwise to then exit about halfway along Via Salaria. The lake and grassed areas at the north of the park are lovely and full of locals playing football and jogging. The actual Villa Ada seemed to have been converted into an equestrian country club, so it wasn't really work walking into the middle to see it.
