KID PICKS: BOMARZO MONSTER PARK

Located in southern Umbria, 60 miles north of Rome, Bomarzo Monster Park (il Parco dei Mostri di Bomarzo) was built in the 16th century by an eccentric nobleman who filled his estate with bizarre, surreal statuary as a memorial to his wife.

Stone monsters are scattered throughout a wooded park, where kids can climb on moss-covered statues and explore a strange crooked house. You can even picnic inside the mouth of the Orc!
