We didn't have a great deal of time but we took a stroll in the park of Villa Borghese. We walked past a lovely little water feature, some impressive statues and then the boating lake on our left and saw the conveniences on the right. A little further on was a lovely little cafe left of the conveniences. Take a... More

Unfortunately tickets are not available online, so when you arrive Rome, first go to buy your tickets since there will be availability for 2 or 3 days later. Don't miss walking around the area, it is a beautiful park, have a coffee and walk through piazza del Popolo for going back to the city and have a great view of... More

When we came here we were very tired, and it was very refreshing and relaxing place to be. The park itself is not huge, but very nice, with a lot of benches to sit and to enjoy your Rome voyage...the museum is also very interesting, great collection of Art.

We did not have a huge amount of time so we decided that we would just look around the grounds and leave the museums to another time. This park is huge and there are a number of ways of seeing it, given our time constraints we chose the train that meanders thru the park on a half hour round trip.... More

Nice gardens to the North of Rome. Not the best when it comes to gardens but serves as a tranquil retreat from the general hustle and bustle of tourist infested rome. Plan your day out to the Villa Borghese, towards the middle of your trip to enable you to recharge your batteries. Entrance to the park is free with the... More

Simply put - one of the most beautiful, elegant and well designed museums or collections or art I've ever seen. The Villa itself is gorgeous from entry to each room, being decorated lavishly to the main masterpieces from the genius of Bernini. It's highly recommended although I'd advise all potential visitors to book ahead online ( give it a week... More

I toured the museum 5 years ago with my husband and was so awe struck that naturally I had to take my sister last week when we visited Rome. While the sculptures and painting never cease to amaze, two things were a disappointment to me. One was the contemporary clothing line collection thrown in between all of this classic art.... More

I looked to book online before our trip to rome but it was fully booked so I wrote it off and decided to visit the park area instead. Nice to walk around and hire a bike if ur feeing energetic-we weren't in 30deg heat! So we wandered up to the museum to take some pics and asked about tickets on... 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.
