While it is worth seeing, there are many more spectacular sights in Rome. If you don't have time it is not a great loss to miss it. However if you have time give it a call.

This park is very attractive and you can hire a bike to get around. It is worth the climb up to escape from the heat of the city and get some tranquility during your stay.

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
