Park of Veio

Overview

A green lung with wildlife and archaeological beauty

With nearly 15,000 hectares, the Veio Regional Natural Park extends north of Rome between the Via Flaminia and Via Cassia and includes the so-called Agro Veientano. It is the fourth largest park in Lazio and covers an area of natural, historical and cultural interest. It includes the municipalities of Campagnano di Roma, Castelnuovo di Porto, Formello, Magliano Romano, Mazzano Romano, Morlupo, Riano, Sacrofano and the 15th Municipality of the Province of Rome. The network of trails is signposted by the CAI and covers 99 kilometres, including the Via Francigena.

An impressive cross-section of typical Roman countryside with large expanses of pastureland can be seen at I Quarti and Belmonte, where you can see various species of fauna and Etruscan and medieval archaeological remains. Places of interest include the Malborghetto Complex, a monumental Roman arch built to honour Emperor Constantine and later transformed into a fortress, the Veio Archaeological Area, the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Sorbo, a former monastery of the Carmelite Friars, the Villa di Livia, the residence of the wife of Augustus, famous for its fresco decoration. The Park Authority offers guided tours and organised events to citizens and tourists throughout the year.
