The Villa Borghese is one of my favorites places to visit in Rome. It is a treasure trove of fine art that will delight any art lover. You can wander the gardens surrounding the villa and escape the Roman heat and inside the villa you will find works by famous artists like Caravaggio, Titian (his spectacular "Sacred and Profane Love"), as well as many Bernini Sculptures - including Bernini's "David" and my favorite "Apollo & Daphne". Aside from the fine and interesting art work acquired by the original owner Cardinal Scipione Borghese (1605), the villa itself, with its majestic frescoed and highly decorated ceilings and interiors is worth the price of admission. Tip: remember to book early and reserve on line so that you can skip the crowds and walk right in to the Galleries.
