Description of the project The house of the park welcomes locals and tourists. It is “equipped with a ‘cycle workshop’ for renting and repairing bicycles and a vegetable garden.” It is a “symbol of sustainable tourism: from the welcome via an information point for Romans and tourists with English-speaking operators, to the creation of a vegetable garden – school visits are planned – and the organisation of guided tours, including the hire of bicycles to experience the park at 360 degrees.”

“The management has been entrusted to Humus Onlus and for now it will be open to the public four days a week: from Friday to Monday. The other days the spaces are reserved for schools and other training and meeting activities of local associations. It will offer first reception services, tourist services also aimed at the international public (nature and historical-archaeological guided tours also in foreign languages and bike hire with bikesharing service upon reservation) and educational activities for schools and families in the spaces dedicated to horticulture and historical and naturalistic studies.”

This space has been created thanks to the fight and work of the association of volunteers from the Cafarella park.
