Moderately easy with some strong uphill at the beginning. Cows along the way, and can be windy so be prepared for possible chill from that. Opportunity in the middle to cut off about 1.5-2km if you are tired.

This was a nice easy trail with gorgeous views of Tívoli and the surrounding areas. The trailhead is just across the street from Villa Gregoriana so it’s accessible without transportation. It goes through a cork forest, which I had never seen before. There’s also a cool cave as you near the end, which is a little hard to notice. We started the trail in full sun without a cloud in the sky and noticed black clouds rolling in during our lunch stop. And we unfortunately got caught in a surprise thunderstorm. There was enough tree cover to ride it out for 45 minutes or so. No problems with bugs when we went.

Hometrail, the path opens on breathtaking view over roman ruins of Vesta's temple and the massive waterfall combined with the visit of parco Villa Gregoriana the jewell of the hiking. I finished the tray several times with kids, and untrained people. Signals of the path are always well visible. There is a rare cork trees woodspot and farm with horses and few cows sometimes free walking around.

This is a good well marked loop. Parking near the trail head may be challenging but there is a parking lot in town center. In the summer it’s very dry up there. There are some nice views of Tivoli and the Roman valley. You’ll want mosquito repellant for sure. There are some picnic areas on the mountain and you pass through a horse area with a trough with running water. I’m not sure if it’s potable though. I’d say 70 percent of the trail was in the forest shade. The description says it’s kid friendly but they may have some trouble on the really rocky parts.
