Nice big park!

Nice big park with a café and lots of space to relax on. You can hire a row boat at the small lake. Perfect for a day out where you can relax with kids, picnic etc.

Went here twice on my week stay in Rome! First time was to see the park and go to the galleries however didnt realise you had to prebook tickets so booked them for a few days later. Went on our last day to the galleries then got a picnic and sat in the glorious sunshine people watching for hours before... More

This was my second time visiting Villa Borghese, again with family. I recommend renting bicycles and riding around together! The property is overgrown with beautiful plants and is very well manicured. There are also places you can stop for coffee, lunch, or an afternoon cocktail. It also offers a beautiful view of Rome. Recommended for families and couples!

I highly recommend those who enjoy art museums. It is worth buying the tickets in advance (must be bought days before, I visited October) and be there at certain time. There's art from floor to roof. Only the rooms are amazing. Then there sculptures and paintings, maybe also some extra exhibitions (fashion dresses when I visited). Do not let mostly... More

You are required to book tickets online for a specific time slot at this museum. To pick up reservations you must bring identification and give your name. Bags must be checked at the desk next to the ticket desk. There is a brilliant little cafe and souvenir shop just inside as well. I would recommend starting at the picture gallery... More

Alright. Get your tickets online through the official Borghese website. You only have two hours inside and then they clear you out, no lagging! Arrive early after a lovely walk across the Green. Check any bags at the desk, mandatory. Photos are allowed. Go downstairs and immediately stand in line to enter, then you are first bc you will run... More

Beautiful gardens with lots to see. There are many pages trails through the gardens. Interesting statues and many secret places. Worth a trip for sure.

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
