Situated between the Cinecittà and Quarto Miglio districts, the Appia Nuova and the Tuscolana, crossed by the route of the ancient Via Latina, the area of the Aqueducts up to the Torre del Fiscale and the Caffarella valley constitutes a unique landscaped path, which opens every day and can be visited on foot or by bicycle.
Created in collaboration with associations and operators specialized in naturalistic and cultural services, the intense program of discovery of the archaeological area near the via Tuscolana, where there are the remains of seven Roman aqueducts of the republican and imperial era, the area the green of Tor Fiscale and the two large agricultural estates of Tormarancia and Farnesiana, is dedicated to nature-loving visitors until the month of July.
A suggestive landscape, in which uncontaminated nature blends with the numerous historical, artistic and cultural testimonies, a real mini-journey through glimpses of ancient Roman ruins to be admired even at sunset and at night, to discover the luminous world of fireflies or the moon phases by telescope.
