From sunrise to sunset.

The park of the aqueducts is a very suggestive bit of Roman countryside, which has escaped the hands of construction speculators and is part of the Regional Appia Antica Park, opened in 1988. Its name is given by the presence of seven aqueducts in the area: the ancient Aqua Claudia and Anio Novus aqueducts (both completed in 52 AD) are superimposed on top of each other, as are another three: Aqua Marcia (144 BC), Tepula (125 BC) and Iulia (33 BC). The last two are the underground Anio Vetus (269 AD) and the sixth century Felice aqueduct, built by Pope Sixtus V using the arches of the Marcio aqueduct. The old Acqua Marrana ditch also passes through this area, an artificial open-air aqueduct made by Pope Callixtus II in 1120 to bring water back to Rome after the old Roman aqueducts ceased to be used.
