Villa Borghese

Rome, Italy

The palace of the XVI century, built for Cardinal Scipione Borghese on the site of former vineyards. The building is surrounded by a huge park in the English style with numerous antique statues. There is a hippodrome, a zoo, a theater and several museums on site. Until the beginning of the 20th century, the mansion with the park belonged to the Borghese family, then all the property was transferred to the state.

Amazing amazing art inside a relatively small building. Book far jn advance because they have limited admission. A tour will really help with perspective too
Just a nice quiet walk around a shaded park. Places to sit. A small cafe. Great views across the city, and if you've walked up the Spanish steps then it's worth a look. You can come down into Piazza Popolo and walk back down to the Spanish .. Read more »

Beautiful. I came here as a tourist just walking around and it was such a relaxing experience. If I was to ever live in Rome, I would go by this place everyday for a walk or for a run. I recommend it if you just need a break and relaxing time.
It is an amazing place to sit, keep cool, and breathe after a hectic day; the views across the city are awesome from up there. All I will say is watch out for the rose sellers. They are a nuisance. Don't let them push you into taking a rose. Be .. Read more »

A nice break from the bustling streets of Rome. It would have been nice if the grounds were better tended. There were no nice grassy lawns like other parks I’ve seen in Europe. It would be nice to have bicycles for rent to ride around the park... Read more »
After a few days of being in a busy city, we needed a bit of green space to walk about in & took a walk up the many, many stairs to get to the park. It was a beautiful space with lots of shade & with musicians playing on the boulevard. We vis.. Read more »
Beautiful, huge, peaceful and safe! We had a nap (two women) in the middle of the day and were not bothered by anyone. It's so green and gorgeous. Unfortunately we went on a day that the gallery itself was closed but the park was so enjoyable.
What a nice garden in the middle of the most beautiful city I've ever been. Rome has so many monuments, and pretty houses, a ton of beautiful architecture, that we completely forgot about visiting any gardens. Out of nowhere while moving inside .. Read more »

Absolutely beautiful park. It's enormous and there's lots to see. It's very clean and an amazing space to have a picnic. Had a great time. We render bicycles to be able to see every inch of the garden.
The most beautiful, incredible park I have ever seen. A local said it is like Rome’s version of Central Park, but I think it is so much more than that. My breath was taken away as I walked around—the fountains, statues, and nature were in.. Read more »

Huge public park in Rome, lovely open space for families, friends or sweethearts. The villa and Museum was a pure pleasure to experience. Only down side was that it didn't seem very well signposted. Exquisite sculpture, so good that the human fo.. Read more »

The grounds are very nice. A shady stroll through many paths transecting this vastly green place. Often times where the paths cross there is either a fountain or a statue placed in there. I'm sure a long way from its botanical origins I didn.. Read more »
We decided to stop by this park on our last evening in Rome and I am glad we did. Although we weren't going to look for a specific thing we had a great time just getting lost in the park. There were plenty of cool statues to see and views of the.. Read more »
This is a great place to see the sunset. It is a unique place because it enhances the light of the sun towards the whole piazza. I advise you to go at 19:00 on the afternoon. If you are lucky you can enjoy a show. It changes throughout the days.
This is one of my favorite places in the world. It is a beautiful park with wonderful sculptures and greenery and an unbelievably awesome museum with tons of Bernini’s. The park is good for walking, running, and all types of leisure and sports .. Read more »

One of the must-see in Rome
Nice escape in the city, we scooted around on the electric scooters for a great time and a good laugh

Beautiful park in the heart of Rome. It has a vast area of greenery. So large with many beautiful trees, musicians playing romantic music and a beautiful lake. There are also activities for kids. Highly recommend for a romantic walk.
This park must be one of the best on the planet. Sadly, due to the people I was with I had to go to the modern art museum which wasn't personally for me. But the lakes/ponds here are very pleasant and have turtles in them. Also the structures an.. Read more »
