In spring and autumn the Park organizes a program of free guided
Sunday visits in collaboration with the associations that have been
working to safeguard and promote this territory for many years by now.
Each of these associations has its program of cultural and schools activities regarding various areas of the Park: Caffarella, Aqueducts, Appia Antica, Tormarancia and Farnesiana.
In the various associations' web sites you will find the information you need to take part in the activities:
Sovraintendenza ai Beni culturali of the Municipality of Rome organizes free guided visits to monuments and archaeological sites of competence like the Monumental Complex of Maxentius and the Church of Sant'Urbano alla Caffarella.
You can book guided visits for groups and agree the itinerary you prefer by calling the number +39 06 5135316 or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
