This park is a sanctuary in the middle of Rome. Easy accessible from the Spanish Steps. You can walk around in this big park and they have a small restaurant, Casa del Orologio, which serves the best orange juice. Not very cheep, but still worth...More

A really magnificent museum. Beatiful palace surrounded by gardens, enormous collection. A very calm and peaceful visit due to limited number of visitors per hour allows you to admire timeless baroque sculptures and paintings. The only minus is maximum 2 hour visits. Definetely coming again

If you need to get away from the city walls of Rome, head to this beautiful park. It is a space for walking, sitting for a picnic or renting a bicycle and exploring the park. The park has lots of statues and beautiful monuments to...More

We visited the Villa Borghese in January (was not able to get tickets during my previous two visits to Rome), and we were very impressed with the collection, especially the Bernini exhibit.

Big park with multiple play parks, pond with row boats for hire, parrots flying around. Very nice for young children over-exposed to museums and buildings. However there are no public toilets - we went into a cafe but it only had one cubicle charged for...More

When just strolled through the park which was ok. It was free, many tourists plus local joggers and cyclists. Not much upkeep which is disappointing. Other than that, it was a quiet and safe area to meander through.

The Villa Borghese is surrounded by a beautiful park with hidden artwork, like statues or fountains, very romantic place. The museum is inside of Villa Borghese. At the basement you have a cafeteria where you also get healthy food choices for a reasonable price. You...More

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
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

We like walking. We walked from Piazza Venezia through Via del Corso right to the end of the street to Campo Marzio and it was just through the arch. It took us 15 minutes. Good Luck

Yes. It’s a free public park. We rented boats which you have to pay for but it was only €3 each. I think you have to pay to go into the museum but we didn’t go in.
