The area
Neighbourhood: Monteverde
Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is Rome’s popular "getaway" neighbourhood, coveted for its greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa Pamphili, is the area's centrepiece with affordable prices and peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far enough away from the centre to feel like you’re on a Roman holiday and close enough to feel the lure of Rome's chaos. Though its downside is the lack of scheduled public transport, this family-oriented area is literally a well-deserved walk in the park.

Park only, with very few facilities or signage. The Villa is closed to the public. There is a cafe at the Leone street entrance with the only bathroom in the entire park. This is also the best entrance (Leone /Villa Pamphili bus stop) as the walk is downhill from here.

Park was a nice break from all the crowds, nice walking area. Highly recommend. Several blocks away there is a cute restaurant with nice drinks and sitting area.

A lovely place for a walk, though it is a bit run-down / neglected in some sections. There are some lovely wild paths through the woods, and the park is much more peaceful then others in Rome.

We were exploring Trastavere and Gianicolo and decided to get the bus up here for a picnic lunch. It’s a lovely (and HUGE) park that is well used by locals for picnics/running/dog walking etc and was a lovey setting away from the hustle and bustle of the centre.

Stayed at Hotel Villa Pamphlet and this park is across the street. First day took a 7 mile hike all around and explored most of it. It is the largest park in the center of Rome. Very safe. Trails everywhere for walking and biking. Several fountain spread around with clean water for drinking. Hours are 8-8. The eastern side has most of the buildings and structures. The western side is mostly woods and open fields. Visited after one if the hottest summers and the grass was scorched from the heat and lack of water as to be expected.

Nice villa closed to the public. You can walk around in the unkempt park. A perfect metaphor for class division in Italy.

If you have the time and desire to be outdoors, this could be an ideal option.
In addition to Villa Borghese, Villa Pamphili is one of the most beautiful parks in the heart of Rome.
It is also one of the largest, after the one on the Appia Antica, with an area of approximately 184 hectares, reachable from 4 main entrances.
It is a wonderful place, surrounded by greenery!
Perhaps the most suggestive location in all of Villa Pamphili is “Il Casino del Bel Respiro”, where it doesn't seem to be in Rome, but in the open countryside.
It was strongly desired by Prince Camillo Pamphili in 1644 to exhibit his collection of ancient statues.
The Casino del Bel Respiro was designed by the sculptor Alessandro Algardi, to express the magnificence of the family.
The palace, the furnishings and the gardens were inspired by famous gardens and parks, in particular those of Villa Adriana in Tivoli, where Algardi went to study and draw.
The interior of the palace has numerous rooms and halls embellished with painted stucco.
Perhaps the most beautiful place is the secret garden, embellished with hedges cut in such a way as to form various designs, including the lily, which is the coat of arms of the family.

The park is big and beautiful. It could be magnificient, but sadly everything is forgotten and shaby, fountains are not working and smelly, all around is just few ha of sadness, dry out plants and collapsing statues, which could become a magnificient place in good hands..

We visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon in February. The park is huge and it's easy to spend several hours walking around to see the sights. Very peaceful.

This park which could be a paradise is often closed for meteorological reasons. It can but very loud especially at the weekend because of all the racket caused by the kids and youngsters playing football although it's forbidden. There are too few benches and often they are in bad conditions. It's badly kept and you never see a gardener; with all the open space they could have opened a botanical garden inside but nobody cares. The only gardener (?) activity you see is when they cut trees in a brutal way and never replace them. What a great pity and what an emblem of italian mentality: what is public is not mine!
