The richest park of Rome

Villa Borghese 

The word 'villa' literally translated means suburban estate - the type developed by the ancient Romans and enjoyed by the wealthy. North of the city, Villa Borghese is a huge park that was part of the pleasure gardens that were originally laid out in the 17th century by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew to Pope Paul V. These days the gardens have changed dramatically and are now completely redesigned, appearing less formal and more natural. The park has many outstanding features, including:
  • Galleria Borghese Museum - beautifully restored and home to a wonderful collection of art
  • Piazza di Siena - a graceful amphitheatre
  • Botanical garden on Via Canonica - including a lake, neoclassical Temple of Aesculapius and café
  • Giardino Zoologico - a small biopark zoo, with many animals and often face-painting at the weekends
  • Bike and roller-skate rental concessions
  • Children's movie theatre
