Positioned in a very steep valley carved out at the foot at the ancient acropolis of Tivoli, villa Gregoriana is one of the most fascinating, special parks in Europe. It was created by Pope Gregory XVI. in 1834 to defend the town of Tivoli from the ruinous floods of the Aniene river. The park consists mainly of thick woodlands with paths that lead to the caves of Neptune and the Sirens, which form part of a series of gorges and cascades, and to the Great Waterfall. You need good shoes and condition!
