ROME  –  A GREEN CITY

ROME – A GREEN CITY

casina-delle-civette

Rome offers a wide range of opportunities to immerse yourself in charming public parks and refresh in green nature in the summer season

Rome is surrounded by a wide  countryside  known as Agro Romano, characterized by rustic  landscapes and  agricultural activities . Inside the city itself archaeological ruins  of Ancient Rome (Forum, Circus Maximus, Terme di Caracalla, Parco degli Acquedotti)   form green spaces  fully integrated into the urban fabric.

Other oasis of nature are created by  parks of historic Villas (Medici, Farnese, Este Tivoli, Borghese, Ada, Doria Pamphili, villa  Ada) built on the tops of hills and surrounded  by ornamental gardens

Villa Doria Pamphili  is one of the largest and most fascinating  villa in the city  and is located on the Gianicolo, near the Porta San Pancrazio.

Villa Borghese  the most famous Roman villa, due to its very central location near the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto, once the very heart of the “Dolce Vita”. Inside Villa Borghese you’ll find the Galleria  Borghese art collection that  includes paintings, sculptures and antiques. Among the most famous pieces of art, we can name the masterpieces by Gian Lorenzo Bernini: his “Rape of Proserpine“, “Daphne and Apollo” and “David“.

Villa Ada Savoia is situated in the northeastern part of the city.This property was once the estate of the House of Savoy.   After the fall of the Italian monarchy, this enchanting park became a public property of the Italian state. An area of the park hosts the Embassy and the Council of the Egyptian Republic. It remains one of the most pleasant Rome parks for a walk. During the summer season a music festival called “Rome meets the World” take place in the park, here all the info: Roma incontra il Mondo.

Villa Torlonia  belongs to the Torlonia family. It was designed by the well known architect, Giuseppe Valadier. It was abandoned for a certain time until Mussolini used it as his state residence for a couple of decades. After 1945, it was again abandoned, until a recent restoration gave back all the beauty to the villa, now open to the public.

 

When  staying at Yes Hotel Rome you can reach easily these destinations and our staff will be happy to provide you all information you need !
