Restaurants and typical products of Tivoli
Tivoli is not only a cultural destination. In Tivoli you can surely eat and drink well, actually much more than just well. Tivoli offers excellent typical products, to take back home or to enjoy at our table every day. Oil, wine, meat, wheat, cereals… Tivoli’s strong point has always been agriculture and farming. Thanks to a mild climate and the proximity of the Aniene river, the farming lands of Tivoli and all the hilly region of the Tiburtini mountains in Lazio offer us a wide range of regional products. Even today, it is the small farmers and the small to medium sized, family-run enterprises the ones that represent the economy of the town.
We, at Green Park Madama, have an objective: to discover with you all the wonderful typical products of Tivoli one by one. Let us begin!
Tivoli and its surroundings are known worldwide for their oil: the Sabina oil PDO! Golden in colour with hints of green… fruity smell and velvety taste… recognised by all. A concentrated flavour obtained from the pressing of different types of olives: Carbonella, Leccino, Raja, Frantoio, Moraiolo, Olivastrone, Salviana, Olivago and Rosciola. It is the perfect condiment, both healthy and balanced. Try it with warm bread or a legume soup! There are uncountable producers of the Sabina PDO oil in the Tivoli area: the Colfiorito Estate produces a great oil, 100% organic… and, for those willing to taste flavoured oils, direct your steps towards the Tio Pepe’s Farm!
The hills of Tivoli are dotted with line upon line of vineyards: a wonderful image for the eye and a unique taste for the palate! The wines of the Tivoli region are well-known across Italy: the Cesanese PDO, a perfect red wine to enjoy with a dish of local dried meats and Roman pecorino… and the Frascati CDO, a white wine with a smooth and delicate taste, ideal to accompany any meal… Get in contact with us at Hotel Green Park Madama and we will organise a wine-tasting event for you in the Colfiorito Estate, to truly imbue yourself with the style of the region. A simple, cosy and warm reality. In other words: a pleasure of the senses.
Ristaurants and Trattorias
In the narrow streets of the city and the green hills surrounding Tivoli hide many venues that are absolutely worth trying: restaurants, trattorias, inns… all united by the quality of the products used and the atmosphere they create. Because, to eat outside under a pergola of vines and to admire the archaeological remains of Roman temples, or to arrange a romantic dinner overlooking the Gregorian Caves are all experiences that calm body and spirit. We, at Green Park Madama, want our guests to try the best of Tivoli and our region! So then… buon appetito!
Eating in Tivoli is an experience not to be missed!
Wellness and baths in Tivoli
Food, culture, nature… let’s add another treat to make your weekend in Tivoli even more tempting: the baths!
Let us know how you would like to organise your trip to the baths… at Green Park Madama we can help you create your perfect package.
The ancient Romans seized an opportunity when they saw one… maybe this is why, since the time of Emperor Augustus, increasingly articulated bath complexes were built around the springs of sulphurous waters of Tivoli. From the imperial baths to the latest restructuring of the Terme di Roma, Tivoli offers you a unique opportunity: spa and wellness treatments, peace of mind… all in one place… enjoy!
The benefits of the Acque Albule, sulphurous waters of milky colour that flow at a temperature of 23 degrees, are known since ancient times. But it is from the late 19th century that Tivoli devoted an entire facility to this spring so that as many people as possible could enjoy the health benefits that these sulphurous waters bring. Today, the baths of Tivoli, renamed Terme di Roma, welcome every year thousands of people from all over Europe.
Tivoli’s thermal baths are not just synonymous with spa treatments. Thermal pools, sauna, hamam, whirlpools… and so much more! A refreshment for body and soul, a parenthesis of well-being for yourself or as a gift for your loved ones during winter or summer, where adults and children can enjoy whole days lying on the edge of the five thermal pools, or enjoying a couple’s bath. An absolute must!
The baths of Tivoli.. and experience you don’t want to miss!
