Tor Caldara is perfect for a small trip when you visit Lavinio. Entrance is for free and the "woods" is ideal also for smaller kids. The view is splendid and you can still see the holes used by American soldiers during 2. World War. Sad but very informative.

Really nice park that shows how the coastline would have been before development. Offers a quite, calm walk out to the Tor, the rough the sulphur pong and along by the animal sanctuary. Also a preserved section of cork trees which are fascinating to see up close. Nice and shaded too on those warm summer days.

Very interesting nature reserve, with pools and streams of sulfur water. So a bit smelly at times but the views more than compensate. Entrance is free but the park is only open in the weekend. I walked from Anzio which proved quite a trek, but most of it can be done via the beach.

A Site of European Importance, the park shows you what the coastline looked like before the lido and the beaches were developed. Beautiful place with several different habitats: the coastal dunes, a coastal forest of Mediterranean evergreens and oaks that covered the entire Lazio coast in the past, streams & wetlands with their different sorts of vegetation, and an ancient...

Really nice place to visit: diversity of natural species, sulphur, seaside... one of the few places to see the ancient coastal wilderness of central Italy.

Unfortunately there is not that much blossoms as usual there in early springtime - but there IS more than enough green throughout the year. An average-idea what is/was italy all around. Lots of plants and nature and some animals.

Great place, it shows how the Lazio coast was before being destroyed by crazy and ignorant developement. The riserva had been saved by being exployted for building houses. It has a centre for the safeguard of wild animals, where they cure wounded animals. Great landscape, often used to shoot western and epic movies, expecially oin the 70s.
