Point of Interest

Park
“A 5-minute walk from the Studio, it’s the third-largest public park in Rome – covering over 80 hectares of land. Inside the park, you can find one of Rome’s very best art galleries, with masterpieces from famed artists such as Caravaggio, Bernini, Raphael, and Titian. Another attraction I advise to visit inside the park is the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, which is the National Gallery of Modern Art. You can also find the Bioparco di Roma, a cageless Zoo located in the north-east area of the park. ”
