It was lovely to sit in the open with drinks ans something to eat and listen to music. The Jazz concert we were in that night was not great, but we didnt mind, the atmosphere made up for it.

Located on the Caelian Hill not far from the Collosseum, the villa has a pleasant, quiet garden with interesting features, walkways and trees. The garden is more of a park used in large part by the locals.

We stumbled on this park quite by accident. It was a forgotten park and yet frequented by locals. It was pleasing to see and hear so much bird life.

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!

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 "who've seen it all" it's a nice place...More

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...More

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...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
