Borghese Park - different than the Gallery?

Can we walk in the Borghese Park without getting tickets for the art gallery?

I would like to see the art gallery but really, we'd just like to walk through the park.

We're going in early September; don't know if that makes a difference.

You can definitely walk in the park w/o going to the gallery. There's lots to do; you can rent bikes or a boat to row around, picnic, etc.

Have fun!

You will also find the Zoo within the Borghese Park, in case that's of interest--or the Villa Giulia museum, which has a lot of Etruscan finds.

You can enter the park at the north end of Via Veneto (among other entrances, of course), wander around, and eventually make your way to the Pincio Hill where you will find the pretty Pincio gardens and belvedere, with its view over Piazza del Popolo and the city -- and St. Peter's dome in the far distance, especially nice at sunset. The Pincio gardens and the Borghese park make up one contiguous tract of land.

Borghese Park is enormous and Borghese Galeery is jsut one of the msuems in the Park along with the Etruscan Museum (Villa Giulia) and th modern art Museum. Borghese park was once the country estate fo Cardinal Borghese.

The park is definitely enormous! We almost missed our reservation for the Gallery because we got lost in the park!
