Aqueduct Park

The Parco degli Acquedotti is situated on a wide stretch of beautiful Roman countryside—the famous “Campagna Romana” so often depicted by artists over the centuries—just outside the city of Rome. The park protects the remains of two enormous ancient aqueducts, yet is surprisingly little-visited by tourists to the city.

This suburban park was designated a protected area in 1988 after two years of campaigning from a local citizen movement. It is named after the impressive aqueducts that still stand there today, providing one of the most famous landscapes in Rome.
