    We found this place by accident. We were wandering through the lovely Villa Borghese, heading towards the Piazza del Popolo and wondering how we were going to get down the hill to the square. That's when we came to this look-off point. The views of the Piazza and of Rome were very nice.

    But this is also a pleasant place on its own. There were lots of people milling around, enjoying the sounds of a street musician, having drinks and picnics. A good place to relax after a hike through the gardens or to just people-watch.

    Park was a nice break from all the crowds, nice walking area. Highly recommend. Several blocks away there is a cute restaurant with nice drinks and sitting area.

    This was a beautiful escape from the busy city, quiet and serene. Loved to see all the different roses, there was a lot of space to walk between them and take a closer look without damaging them. Quite a lot of people, but it didn't feel crowded.

    A must see. Wasn’t too crowded when we went which meant a breath of calm amidst a busy tourist area. Breathtaking views across Rome!

    We completely stumbled upon this by chance at the top entrance as we stayed nearby and had some hours to pass. It’s not the best for botanic garden as in the butterfly house was closed, as was a couple of the other greenhouse however for 5Euro cannot complain. The poison garden made us chuckle with signs saying toxic but no restrictions to touch. Having Been to Alnwick poison garden the Italian lax store was amusing. Lovely for a couple of hours stroll if in Trastavere area

    My Palazzo Farnese tour in English was pre-booked for 5PM and I joined the line for the security check at 4:40PM. The Palazzo belongs to the French Embassy, so needless to say that security check was very thorough. Actually, there were two security checks: one outside and another one inside. Do not carry big bags!!!

    The tour was pretty interesting, but the interior did not strike me as something out of the ordinary by Rome's standards. The rooms are empty because all the precious collections of the Farnese family are in Naples now. However, there are two highlights which certainly made the visit very special.

    1. The Room of Maps with spectacular frescoes by Annibale Carracci and his school: "The Love of Gods"

    2. The exterior and the courtyard designed by Antonio da Sangallo. Michelangelo also contributed to some elements of the architectural design of this magnificent palazzo.

    And for me personally this visit meant one more thing: the second act of one of my favorite operas, Puccini's "Tosca" takes place in Palazzo Farnese. This is where Tosca kills the evil chief of police, Scarpia, who tortured and condemned to death her lover, the painter Mario Cavaradossi.

    Beautiful informal gardens a 15 min walk from Piazza de Popolo. We really appreciated the peace and tranquility, a total contrast to the hustle and bustle of central Rome.

    We hired boats on the artificial lake, it was so relaxing.

    Located just above and behind the Colosseum. During the summer, you can enjoy lovely, relaxed, inexpensive jazz concerts!
    We spent our last two evenings there, and wished we had gone every night ! Village atmosphere, good choice of food and drinks, different artists every night.
    Highly recommended!

    Lovely pond for a nice summer day in the park. Fiance enjoyed it very much! They even provided umbrella in case the sun is just a bit too harsh.

    Villa Lante on the Gianicolo hill is another impressive villa. It is a summer house designed by Giulio Romano in 1520-21 for Baldassare Turini, as one of Romano's first independent commissions after the death of his master Raphael. The villa has spectacular views of Rome. Today, the property is owned by the Republic of Finland and houses the Finish Institute in Rome.

    Pleasant gardens on top of the Palentine Hill, with plenty of green to relax in after all the walking. There is an excellent viewing platform with a superb view of the Roman Forum.

    On a long & warm day strolling the streets of Lazio we stumbled upon this quaint & quiet little park. I surmise its history and the statues reflect the fall of Napoleonic rule of Italy in 1814 and celebrates the rebirth of the Italian states. All I know it was a pleasant break from the crowds and a nice respite!

    We were wondering if it was possible to visit Villa Wolkonsky but found out that the British Embassy is situated here. So its not accessible to the public. Looks like a lovely park from the outside though !
