About Villa Gregoriana

Built in the 1830s by Pope Gregory XVI to control flooding from the Aniene River, Villa Gregoriana in Tivoli is a park unlike any other. It's a beautiful blend of nature and history, with its landscape containing remnants of ancient villas, caves and dense vegetation. By creating the Monte Castillo tunnel, the Aniene was redirected from Tivoli town to emerge as a gorgeous waterfall that drops 130 meters.

Why visit Villa Gregoriana?

Did you know?
  • Villa Gregoriana gets its name from the remains of an ancient dwelling called Manlius Vopiscus, whose remnants are still on site. The Aniene, having passed through it, has reduced several of its rooms to grottoes.
  • The architect of Villa Gregoriana was actually chosen from a competition to decide who would rise to the challenge of solving the problem of River Aniene's flooding. The winner, Clemente Folchi, suggested diverting the river bed and bypassing it through tunnels.
  • In the 20th century, Villa Gregoriana was damaged due to bombing from the World Wars, and it lay largely forgotten.
  • When the Fondo Ambiente Italiano (FAI), an Italian municipal corporation undertook the task of cleaning up the Villa in 2002, they had to clean out over 5 tons of trash that had collected over the decades. Found among the rubbish pile were TVs and washing machines.
