A beautiful getaway in Rome! Excellent place to visit and enjoy the trees, the lake, quiet and peace of the scenery. A bike ride is a must if you want to enjoy the whole park in a day's visit. Amazing views of the city and even more beautiful photographic scenes all over the park. A true "Hyde Park" of Rome

Wonderful park for cycling or strolling. The museum with the Bernini sculptures and famous paintings is a must see in Rome. Be careful, you have to book in advance on line.

Spent a morning in this lovely park. Wished I could have had more time. Spacious and relaxing; complete with wild green parrots (noisy but intriguing). Well worth a visit if you have young children.

After two days doing the tourist stuff we needed some space so spent the morning cycling around the parkland. Great views across the city and green space to 'chill'

Villa Borghese is a beautiful park that is great for taking a stroll, clearing your mind, removing yourself from the bustling city, and people watching. The grounds are beautiful and it's a nice getaway from the city. The museum is also a must-see if you visit the gardens. It has several Bernini sculptures inside that are beautiful. Take time to...

Villa Borghese is an amazing park, you can spend a day here if the weather is nice. You can take a bike or a sagway, or a boat on the lake.

You must show up ON time..early will get you waiting..In fact, we had to wait an hour..crazy. The gardens seem to be in want of some care...too bad...grounds are still beautiful... More

I've been to the Galleria/Museo Borghese, housed in the Villa Borghese, many times. It does not disappoint. With Bernini's David, Apollo & Daphne, and Rape of the Sabine Woman, Canova's Pauline Borghese (sister of Napoleon) as Venus Vitrix, and much more, you will think you're walking through an art history textbook that has come to life. You do need an... More
