Bird Watching Day Trip in Rome and its surroundings
A full-day birding in Rome trip, along the northern Lazio coastline visiting some of the most interesting places in the region. Starting from Rome we will explore a huge diversity of environments: river mouths, lagoons, inland river valleys, and rural hills. Thanks to its volcanic origin, the area north of Rome also offers excellent vineyards and products well known to gastronomy experts.
During the year more than 100 species of birds can be spotted during this bird-watching trip including migratory, wintering, and nesting species and, often, rarities too!
The first part of this Rome and surroundings bird watching trip will be focused on urban birding in some hotspots in the magnificent "Eternal City".
Then we'll move to the area northwest of Rome. After a quick visit to Bracciano lake, looking for waterbirds, we'll explore the Tolfa mountains, one of the best places in Central Italy for observing birds of prey.
In the afternoon, you can choose to visit the Mignone river valley, within the Tuscia region, or the Tiber river mouth area and its associated coastal wetlands.
For those who would like to have a short urban birding tour, we also offer a half-day tour in Rome. The Eternal City, with its historical gardens, archaeological sites, and the banks of the Tiber gives excellent opportunities for urban birdwatching.
Half-day tours may also include nearby natural environments such as coastal wetlands.
In addition, we can guide you in other gems of the region. The Veio Regional Park, Circeo National Park, and the Tuscia region are just a few examples of what Lazio has to offer for nature and bird watching enthusiasts!
