So glad we purchased our tickets in advance, because they do sell out and the museum was well worth seeing and worth the money. Know that you need to check all bags. The park is lovely and the Bernini sculptures are spectacular!

The gardens are vast and such a joy to be in. You can rent bikes, Sedgeways, 4 wheel pedal bikes or just walk around. So much green space to view and absorb in this busy city.

We recently visited Rome (for the first time) and rented an apartment near Piazza del Populo. This is the area just inside the north gate of ancient Rome, and is very convenient to the rest of the city and also Vatican City, which is just across the Tiber River to the west. The wide open Piazza is very popular with... More

One of the must visit places in Rome that combines nature, pleasure, history and physical excercise. We spent a lot of hours walking, drinking coffee etc. You can ride your bike and enjoy!

I did not care for Rome very much but I enjoyed my afternoon here. We toured the gallery, which I highly recommend, and spent the day walking and riding bikes. I'm not a city person and after a certain amount of time I get tired of being around too much concrete. This was a wonderful respite. It's not perfectly maintained... More

Walked here from the Hilton Garden Inn. Beautiful park. Amazing flowers in bloom in Sept. Walked around park towards the lake. Continued on to Piazza del Popolo. Had a map from the hotel but really not very helpful. I would recommend trying to find a map online for the park. Since we had to keep referencing signs in the park... More

This place is really bad. To start with, the metro dropped us off at an unknown place. There were no signs at all, only a big entrance to what seemed to be a big park. After we entered there was a small (unclear) map which told us that we were at the right spot. After searching for a hour we... More

This is an absolutely beautiful spot and worth stopping by. The park is huge and has tons of places to relax. There are paths for running or biking. There are also cafes and restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat or drink while enjoying the view. I wish I had more time to explore!

The Villa Borghese Museum is not to be missed. A treasure of Europe...and I believe to be the most Beautiful in Europe. This museum earns this title as compared to The Louvre, The Prada, The Vatican, The Uffizi because of its many works of art and particularly those of Bernini... added to that ...the museum is a work of art...

The gardens surrounding the Borghese Gallery are immense and the view is spectacular. We rented segways for a half hour and had a great time zipping around the park. We covered a lot of ground and had a blast.
