Amazing art, average food

The art is amazing here. It is highly recommend to book as you only have 2 hours inside max - more than enough. The food down stairs isn't great however.

Amazingly beautiful villa with overwhelming art. A temporary Caravaggio exhibition. Bernini's art all over the place. An amazing 2 hour tour at the villa. Don't miss out.

Many beautiful paintings and sculptures. Recommended to buy tickets on the gallery internet site to avoid standing in a very long line....

We have been to Rome twice and both times spent time just holding hands and walking around the park and just taking the day as it comes. There is so much to do and see in the park including the Zoo, Gallery, Theatre, Cafe's, cycling, boating, walking, segway,s, funfare, restaurants. The park is huge and so many ways to enter... More

After a couple days of heavy duty sightseeing, plan of spending a morning for afternoon in this beautiful park. It used to be the Borghese Estate, right outside the city walls, and it's been preserved as a beautiful park with lovely walks and views and cooling trees. Believe me, you'll be glad to sit on a bench under one of... More

Villa Borguese is a very beautiful park. Right above piazza di Popolo, it provides a nice view of whole city. Probably the park is even more beautiful during spring,

A great escape from museums and sight seeing. We rode a 4 person bike for an hor for 20 euros - so fun. A picnic under the barren white trees was splendid. We also went to the Galleria Borghese which was great. Spent 6 hours here and would recommend for families.

I try to spend at least an hour or two every trip to Rome it just relaxes me and my heart fells at peace. You are in the middle of a huge city and yet here you are in a most beautiful setting and a place where you can be with that special someone in your life or just walk... More

The Bernini sculptures were one of my highlights of my two weeks in Rome. Reserve your tickets as much in advance as you can. Arrive early----like at least a half hour early---because you have to pick up your tickets and check your bags. It is pleasant to approach the villa at a leisurely pace through the lovely Borghese Gardens. The... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
Parioli
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 riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
