Educational farms in Tivoli
Did you know that many children don’t know what a cow or a horse actually looks like? Or how a hen lays an egg?
Many have never seen a vegetable patch!
Unfortunately, children living in big cities far from the countryside have very few opportunities to get to know and understand nature.
A WWF survey found that it is not just the littlest among us that suffer from a “lack of nature”, but that the problem affects adults too!
So… take advantage of being on holiday in Tivoli and visit an educational farm to show your children the world of nature and animals!
Educational farms are agritourism or agricultural enterprises open to children and adults who can take guided tours with experts and take part in educational and entertainment activities.
In this way, between the hens and the sheep, children can understand what a farm is and what to feed the animals… or how to make cheese!
And often you can sample the farm produce: snacks, lunches and tastings with local dishes made from the farm produce: jams, honey, cheese, milk, yoghurt, cured meats, fresh fruit, wine and more.
So… what are you waiting for?
You can choose between several educational farms close to the Green Park Madama Hotel.
In Tivoli, ready to welcome you with:
- Educational farm with courses on cheese making, olive harvesting and farm animals;
- Mini Club every Saturday and Sunday, with educational farm, games, entertainment and puppet theatre;
- Horse riding and, for the littlest ones, first time in the saddle on Pony.

Here, you can enjoy the experience of an amazing “educational fish farm“: for those big and small, the opportunity to discover how fish farming works and to try your hand at fishing in one of the little lakes!
Close to Subiaco, in the Parco degli Aceri (Maple Park), there is a great educational farm with loads of events, shows, summer camps and where you can buy local specialities from the Aniene Valley, book excursions and go horse riding.
The farm specialises in bee keeping… You are spoilt for choice in what to do: workshops, children’s summer camps, trips to see the animals and beehives, buy jams and honey products and, if you’re up for it, the opportunity to wear a bee keeping hat and overalls and see the world of bees from close range! Surprise your children with something out of the ordinary!
