Park Aqueducts in Rome (Parco Acquedotti)

DMae

For several years I have longed to see some of the aqueducts which are located near Rome. However, I could never figure out how to get there. I had found varied instructions on which busses to take, taxi rides, hikes, and so on, but none of the directions ever worked for me.

Then, along came Google maps. By studying the satellite pictures online, I devised an inexpensive and easy to visit the Parco Acquedotti! It is so simple that I spent not one Sunday in the park, but two!

If youíve had as much trouble as I did in the past, see if these directions work for you:

  • Buy a metro ticket. It costs Ä1 and can be purchased at the station.
  • Get on the metro line A, direction Anagnina
  • Get off the metro at the Subaugusta station.
  • Exit toward via Tito Labieno.
  • Walk down via Tito Labieno a few blocks (about 600 m) to the park.
  • When you cross via Quintilo Varo, you will know you are headed in the right direction.
  • Cross via Lemonia and you are there.

That is all there is to it!

I went on a Sunday morning, took a picnic lunch, and enjoyed the park with the residents. There were people playing soccer, walking, running, working out, riding bikes, and entire families out and about. The aqueducts are the Claudio and the Felice. If the weather is clear, you will be able to see the dome of St. Peterís in the distance.

I spent time walking the paths and sketching. When it was time to return home, I simply reversed the plan and returned back to my apartment in Rome.
