Monte Mario Natural Reserve


Fa parte dell'itinerario storico di: La Via Cassia

The Reserve, extended on 204 hectares, protects a proper mosaic of biological diversity, rare in Rome by now. Lower areas are rich of Mediterranean vegetation. Instead, higher areas include mountain plants. They are populated by native wildlife, although disturbed by the pressing urbanization. The area is inestimable for Rome. We can add to it the historical villas Mazzanti and Mellini, headquarter of the Observatory in 1923.

The Reserve is run by Roma Natura local Authority
Villa Mazzanti, via Gomenizza, 81 – 00195 Roma
