Couldn't find it. Terrible indications. We tried all subway exits in vain. Ended up in some places every time, no entrance, no sign!

(went Sept 2014) Extremely relaxing grounds in which to walk and very open. People generally walk around the main water areas and the museums but there are plenty of relatively untouched areas in which to walk. One can easily see parrots, turtles, herons and all sorts of wildlife we don't see much in the UK. Bikes and similar things are... More

Visited the park Sunday morning while my husband was working. Very relaxing and beautiful scenery and views. Museums are spread throughout. Dogs, children, bikers, runners and roller bladers are all around but there is plenty of space for everyone. It was a great place to people watch and enjoy watching families spend time together.

Literaly didn't know it was there. We walked up the stairs and follow up the road and it has an amazing view of the... More

The view from this park is sensational. Highly recommend. Didn't use any facilities offered as didn't have time. Looked like a few things to do whilst within the park.

Lovely place to visit. Beautiful gardens, sculptures, buildings. Options to ride segways, bikes, pedal cars, row boats. A nice change to be able to get outdoors.

Borghese gardens are huge and great fun and a welcome change and diversion from the intensity (and in the Summer heat) of the city. Lots to see and do - art, culture, walk, eat or hire one of those pedal bike things for 4 people - lethal (I'm amazed there aren't more injuries or deaths!) but kids and teenagers love... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
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.
