Description: In the 1600s this area was a farm for the Barberini family, it then passed many famous family hands until it was handed over to Mussolini on the condition it became a public park. The statues seen are 18th century, originally from a villa in Lombardy.
Description: If you are not in the mood for pizza, try a panino with some local products. An excellent selection of salami and cheese, ask for a surprise sandwich and you won't be disappointed! There hours change but they do close usually in late afternoon for a small break.
Description: One of the largest parks in Rome, it is a great escape from the city, and the perfect spot for a picnic. Take your time wandering around and be sure to see the 16th century villa in the center of the park.
Description: One of my all time favorites of the city, you won't find many tourists but locals and students of the nearby university. Miami dip their cones in chocolate and add nuts on top, so be sure to take advantage of that delicious treat. They have an amazing consistency and range of flavors. My personal favorites are Peanut with Dulce de Leche and Carmelizzed Fig.
