Hiking in the mountains around Tivoli
During your stay at the Green Park Madama Hotel, you can take advantage of the wonderful surrounding countryside by having a go at hiking, maybe for the first time.
The hiking routes on the mountains around Tivoli are suitable for everyone: you can choose between excursions along mapped routes (roads, tracks and paths) or, for the more expert among you, there are routes off the beaten track. For all hikers, the walks provide you with the opportunity to observe the rocks, plants, insects and birds, as well as to take great photographs and visit the local tourist sites. A break from the chaos of modern life, immersion in the green of the countryside that is of such incredible benefit to both body and mind.
Those who love a challenge can choose Orienteering: woodland, a map, a compass and one goal – to get to your destination! Personalised routes for all levels, including options for children… to ensure enjoyment for everyone!

Hiking in Tivoli
The region around Tivoli provides many opportunities for those looking for excursion activities, for all levels of difficulty and personal preference (e.g. mountain excursions, river excursions, historical-cultural excursions etc.).
Here are our recommendations!
- Easy-level excursions around the charming Santa Chelidonia hermitage.
- Trip to the Simbruini Mountains Park, including a visit to Nero’s Villa , to the little lake of Saint Benedict and to the small town of Jenne
- Walks on Monte Cotento or Monte Viperella; very easy without snow, a little harder in the winter with snowshoes
- Walks around the ancient Arco di Trevi (Trevi Arch)
- Excursions on the Ruffi Mountains, between the Aniene Valley and the Fiumicino Valley;
- Walks in the Monti Lucretili Nature Park;
- Trips to the Campo dell’Osso, where you can also find lots of children’s outdoor activities.
And to finish up… a bit of advice for beginners!
To partake in amateur hiking activities, it’s not so much athletic preparation that is required, as a bit of good will.
Here are a few rules to bear in mind when taking part in an easy-level excursion:
- Every route has a designated code that indicates its difficulty level: don’t overdo it and only choose trips that are suitable for your physical and technical abilities! And don’t worry; the Tivoli region is full of very easy routes, suitable even for families with children.
- For your total peace of mind, sign up for organised group outings: great fun and full of interesting encounters!
- Don’t waste money on technical equipment: all you need is sports shoes, suitable socks, preferably wool, comfortable clothing, cap and sunglasses, insect repellent, a small rucksack for personal items, emergency waterproofs, water and possible foodstuffs.
- Put the heaviest items in the bottom of your rucksack and adjust the shoulder straps so as not to wear it hanging too low.
- During the hike, it is recommended that you do not: stray from the group, talk in a loud voice, use headphones or talk on a mobile phone. These are all things that do not fit well with the hiking spirit.
- Do not disturb the wildlife, damage the vegetation and, above all… do not leave any rubbish or cigarette ends along the way!
Lots of energy, an open mind… and rucksack on your back!
