The Park has been established with the decree no. 29 of 6/10/1997. The whole protected area has a considerable historical and archaeological value and a fascinating landscape. It is delimited by the consular roads Cassia in the west, Flaminia in the east, and by via Campagnanese in the north. Together with the parks of Appia Antica and Aniene, Veio represents one of the green wedges penetrating the urbanized area of Roma, where about the half of its development extends. The Park is situated in an area which was called in the past Agro Veienteiano, a territory controlled by the ancient Etruscan town of Veio. The complex of historical elements and monuments is completed by an extraordinary naturalistic and sometimes uncontaminated context.
