Not far from the Termini station, this area of greenery is frequented by locals but also is a bit of a dodgy area. It dies contain the ruins of Trofei di Mario.

Close to the Termini Station we went here to enjoy the park and it's beautiful monuments. Close by you can stop for a drink in one of the terraces or restaurants here.

We have been there many times and this time we brought kitty treats to feed the cats. They live in the ruins there and many people see that they are fed and watered. They even have little individual houses under the trees.
