Aqueduct Park (Parco degli Acquedotti) Tours

Aqueduct Park (Parco degli Acquedotti)
One of Rome’s the most unique public parks, the Aqueduct Park (Parco degli Acquedotti) is home to the remains of two ancient aqueducts—Aqua Felix and Aqua Claudia—and the 2nd-century Villa delle Vignacce. Part of Appian Way Regional Park, this 593-acre (240-hectare) expanse just outside the city center is a popular respite from the bustle of downtown Rome.

The Basics
Far enough outside the Eternal City to host flocks of grazing sheep but close enough to be an easily accessible retreat from the urban chaos, Parco degli Acquedotti is among the most fascinating areas of Appian Way Regional Park. Crossed by two aqueducts that provided water to ancient Rome, the park is fun to explore on foot or by bike as part of a guided tour that begins at the Aurelian Wall and follows the Appian Way along its historical route through the Roman countryside, visiting a number of archaeological ruins along the way. 

Appian Way tours often include stops at sites such as the thermal baths of Caracalla, the San Callisto and San Sebastiano Catacombs, the Circus of Maxentius, and the tomb of Caecilia Metella. You can also join a guided small-group bus tour to explore this ancient road from central Rome.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • If you are joining a hiking or cycling tour, be sure to wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
  • Parco degli Acquedotti is outdoors, so bring a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water.
  • The ancient aqueducts make for unforgettable pictures and are a must for photography enthusiasts.
  • Kids especially enjoy an outing to the park, where they can explore the walking and biking paths without dangers from car traffic.
  • The park offers a free electric-minicar service for visitors with limited mobility, which must be reserved ahead of time.

How to Get There
Located just under five miles from Rome’s city center, Parco degli Acquedotti can be reached by Metro line A (Parco Appia Antica stop) or by bus (Piazza Cinecittà stop). 

When to Get There
Parco degli Acquedotti, located inside Appian Way Regional Park, is entirely outside, so it’s best to visit on a clear day in the spring and fall when the temperatures are mild. You can spend anywhere from a few hours to an entire day exploring the park on foot or bike, so set off in the morning.

Appian Way Regional Park
The initial stretch of ancient Rome’s Appian Way, beginning at the Aurelian Wall that encircles Rome’s historical center, is part of a regional park, and there are a number of archaeological sites set along the historical route that are located within the park confines. A visit to Appian Way Regional Park is especially interesting for archaeology enthusiasts.
