It´s a bizarre park, quite in middle of nothing -thus pretty difficult to arrive without a car- but worth the stop if you´re around. Nature in the park is pretty wild and everywhere you turn you find a rock sculpture with "messages". Has pretty steep...More

I really recommend visiting this wonderful park. You won't see anything like it anywhere else. Stone monsters and mythical figures in a glorious setting - with donkeys! It's fabulous. Practicalities- it's quite expensive (but worth it), there are good facilities for children and use the...More

Exiting and terrific park near Viterbo. A suggestive park with more than 30 monuments that represents monsters and divinities. 1 and half hour is enough to visit the park. Price: 10 euro for adults, Free for kids (0-4 years old)

It doesn't take long to visit this attraction: in one hour you can be out. Quirky sculptures (a wobbly house, a giant turtle etc) make this a varied and interesting outing. the price, though, it's a bit expensive for what it is.

I would like to do this on our upcoming trip in June. If we aren't driving - how hard is it? Should we stay overnight at the "dying city" or in Orvieto? How difficult is it to get a taxi? Will have 3 teens with us and one is a little fragile . . . thanks for your info!
