Lago del Belvedere in Villa Pamphili
Come take a stroll with me as I wander through the beautiful park of Villa Pamphili. Still virtually unknown to tourists, this stunning oasis shares an authentic Italian experience with anyone who passes along its dusty roads. Once a private villa and hunting grounds for the noble family of its name in the 1600s, this park is now fully open to the public for sports and picnics alike. Perfect for all kinds of recreation, Romans flock to this natural haven, especially during the punishing heat of the summer, and lounge in the expansive green grass by the multiple lakes.
Full of little playgrounds, outdoor gym equipment, and doggie zones, you’ll find everything from families and jogging buddies to swans and foxes sharing the natural beauty. And while the Villa itself is closed to the public, you can still admire its curated gardens and countless ornate fountains throughout its massive grounds. A major road splits the park down the middle, but that’s where you’ll find the one café, with delicious sandwiches and coffee. Hey, let’s grab a Spritz while we’re at it.
