Try this with your kids or your friends - it is so much fun, and makes you feel just a little bit like a Roman, as you tour around the park seeing families and couples enjoying this oasis in Rome.

The Pincio's Garden and terrace, easily accessible by climbing the long staircase that starts from Piazza del Popolo up to the terrace that overlooks the square. This is a magical place, a mix of poetry and romance, in fact, once you reached the gardens you will literally bewitched by the beauty of the 180 degree panoramic view across the ''eternal... More

A wonderful place to relax and wander around away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Almost 300 busts are dotted around the park, often surrounded by flowers and invariably with their noses missing. The view across Rome towards the Vatican is breathtaking. I also enjoyed a bit of live music while I was up there! Whatever you do,... More

This park is huge and is a welcome relief from the concrete and noise of the city below. On arrival here we decided to rent a rickshaw that is pedal powered assisted with an electric motor. It was both great fun and a great way to get around the park and for 12 euro an hour its well worth it!... More

From this huge garden there is a lovely view of Rome. One can also rent a bike from here. We went there early morning from a flight of steps in Piazza del Popolo at the beginning of Via del Corso.

To go to the Pincio, go to Piazza del Popolo. If you have entered from Via del Corso, you need to head "north east" of the Piazza. There you'll find the path that will lead you straight up to the Pincio. The terrace up there affords a splendid view of Rome. Tip: I'd suggest you go there just before sunset... More

This is such a beautiful setting high on a hill at the NW corner of the Villa Borghese. The panoramic view of the Piazza del Popolo was wonderful. The gardens are nicely manicured but not overly fussy. 228 busts of famous Europeans line the garden's walkways. We came upon a wonderful little cafe called La Casina dell'Orologio built in 1922...

It might be the best view in all of Rome during the day, but it is resplendent as the sun sets over the city. A great opportunity to take some snacks or gelato up to the top and relax as night falls. The gardens the lead to the Villa Borghese are gorgeous and peaceful. Highly recommend this for an evening... More

These extensive hilltop gardens are worth a visit. Take a picnic and find a quiet spot for lunch. Hire a bike (4 euros an hour) or a segway, or four wheeled bike, or a go cart or golf cart, and look around the acres of gardens. There's a zoo, a big lake with paddle boats, a small lake and fountain,... More
