Easter Monday with FAI, in Tivoli’s Villa Gregoriana Park
Thanks to FAI, Fondo Ambiente Italiano, this year Tivoli’s Villa Gregoriana Park will be open to the public once again on Monday, April 6.
It is a great opportunity to capture one of Italy’s most enjoyable traditions: Easter Monday outings and picnics. The gorgeous park is an oasis of art and nature, with forests, waterfalls, steep cliffs, and the ruins of ancient Roman villas. FAI took it over in 2002 and was able to make it accessible to the public exactly ten years ago.
Villa Gregoriana Park is a wonderful, romantic garden that was named after Gregory XVI. The cultivated pope born in Belluno (1765-1846), indeed, had this space created in 1835 in order to protect the town of Tivoli from the periodical floods of the Aniene river, with two artificial tunnels redirecting part of the abundant water here.
From 10am to 6pm on Monday, April 6, the Park will host games and entertainment for the whole family, as well as offer guided tours to explore its fascinating secrets.
