The Parco degli Acquedotti is a public park in Rome, Italy. It is part of the Appian Way Regional Park and is of approximately 15 ha. The park is named after the aqueducts that go through it. It is crossed on one side by the Aqua Felix and also contains part of the Aqua Claudia and the remains of Villa delle Vignacce Sam McVane "The Villa delle Vignacce at Rome, Italy" to the North West. A short stretch of the original Roman Via Latina can also be seen. The park is served by the subway stations Lucio Sestio and Giulio Agricola .
Although just 8 km from the centre of Rome, the park has been protected from development and retains a rustic air. Towards the South and East of the park crops are still grown and sheep can be found grazing.
Partly due to its proximity to Rome's movie studios at Cinecittà, the park is often used as a film location. Perhaps the most memorable scene is the opening shot of La Dolce Vita where we see a statue of Christ suspended from a helicopter flying along the Aqua Claudia.
