It's not touristic at all. And it is soo quiet, that I would dare to whisper here. Of course it holds no interest for those who come to Rome just for a few days. But for those... read more

Just above the Colosseum is a little park, there are regular summer jazz concerts, in a shady pine park; ideal also for pic nics, pony rides; musik are performed in the summer evenings.

The sign at the entrance bears graffiti but thankfully there is none inside, nor any beggars, scarf sellers, selfie stick sellers etc etc. A real place of tranquility and the best place I have visited in Rome. Love.y to wander the paths, watch the birds and butterflies and lizards. A delight.

Charming little park on the Celio hill. Good place to basking in the sun, or walk in love. You'll be be surprised by the green parrots who have made their big nests on large cedar park. And by their impressive fuss!

The park was big, with dirt walking tracks leading to the different areas. The playground was ok, no shade for the children in such a hot heat. The turtles were amazing, fenced off in a little pond. The gardens / grass need a bit of work and lots of rubbish.

In summer, the jazz club Alexanderplatz holds its concerts outdoors, in a lovely park south of the Colosseum called Villa Celimontana. Their website lists the concerts, but is otherwise quite useless. Do not attempt to buy tickets online – the computer system does not work well and there is a high likelihood your reservations will be lost. You can buy... More
