well... this place is enchanting. it is difficult to describe. everything is art. every corner you are looking at is plenty of paintings and creations of the best artists who lived in the ancient ages. take your time to see everything, one-two hour would not be enough!

Take a walk with your wife in the park and just have a good time. We ended up at a place with a view over the city. Marvellous!

Visited on 18.04.14 .Beautiful gardens but beware of the security of the four seated bicycles! Hired one and on returning it my twelve year old daughter's handbag was missing. Could have fallen out of basket at front of bicycle where you put your bags or taken when returning bicycle. All very upset as it contained her phone with treasured photos.... More

I strolled around the parks but there is so much to see that I couldn't do it justice! Next time I might hire a bike.

Villa Borghese is a Beautiful park in the center of Rome. The park is enormous!!! In the Pam there is an art gallery but you can only stay inside for two hours. There is a great lookout point from in of the more popular parts of the park that gives a great view of Rome especially at night. If you... More

As odd as it may seem the best part of our vacation was renting one of the 4 wheeled bikes and peddling around Borghese park. We spend time at the zoo, and the various parks throughout the park. We also spend time at the villa and taking photos of all of the other attractions in the park.

Your visit is limited to 2 hours--no laisily wondering around, if you want to see everything gotta move. Lovely and interesting place, be sure to get an audioguide (we did) or join the tour (our friends did and loved... More

One must book this place and make reservations in advance! I called 2 weeks before our trip. LOL my first long distance overseas phone call ever. The villa itself is very elaborate and even gaudy, but when you focus in on the wonderful works of art, there is a lot to learn. I did not do the tour, but did... More

I was a little bummed that the lake in the adjacent gardens was empty while we were there, because we were looking forward to having a picnic and enjoying the afternoon there. However, the park itself was still a lovely place to visit, and it was interesting to see the Villa Borghese. We didn't bother with going in to the... More
