The Largest Park in RomeAs the largest public park in Rome, Villa Doria Pamphili Park is a convenient spot for relaxation from the bustling city. This park is less than 2 km from Vatican City and you can rest there, between visits to the famous sites and the long lines.
Like most parks in the city, this park once belonged to one of the aristocratic families of Rome. It remains simple and pleasant and the atmosphere is nostalgic. Italian can be heard here, as the locals spend their downtime in the park.
The park is built around Villa Doria Pamphili. The large and luxurious villa was built in the 17th century, during the Baroque period, for Prince Camilo Pamphili, who was the Pope's nephew.
There are no special attractions in the park, but you can spend an hour of leisure and take in the view, or join the runners on its path or walk. Enjoy!
