It was January 1, 2017 and lots of places were closed so we decided to take a stroll to the park. Really beautiful, scenic and although busy, was very peaceful.

A must see in Rome. Not only the amazing park but the museum also, with the famous sculptures of Bernini. Note that you have to book in advance your tickets and that is an every 2 hour entry in the museum so you can manage your time. After the museum is great to walk the park towards the Pincio, where...

We took the 910 bus from Termini to Villa Borghese and discovered the return service was suspended when we tried to get back to Termini...really poor. We walked back to town, but were foot sore and weary. We also bought drinks in Villa Borghese (fresh squeezed pomegranate and a cafe latte) and were told the adjacent toilets were only for... More

Located north from the spagna this is a lovely quiet corner of Rome.We hired out a segway for an hour to see all of it to save some time and not get tired out for the rest of the day.This park has views of the vatican ect.. as it is on a hill.

Ideal place for families with children since you can go to the zoo (the entrance fee is quite expensive), rent a bike/segway/surrey bike. The best place to eat here is La casa della musica!!

Beautiful place for walking around, having a picnic, letting kids play, and still see some amazing Roman glories! If the weather is nice, plan to spend time in the gardens.

We visited Villa Borghese on a Sunday morning. The view to piazza del Popolo was great. You can just walk through the huge trees and rest in the small lake, or you can also rent one of the Segways!

Great place to wander in Rome. Rent a bike and ride it all day long. You won't regret to spend a day with such an activity.

Walked the short distance from our hotel. Found rental for bikes, scooters and defeats. Opted for 1h on a Segway. Easy and fun. Lots of places to stop for views, coffee or a snack. Gallery in the park, near the zoo and a small boating lake. Play areas for children.

Great for a stroll solo, couples or families. The park is scattered with an abundance of activity options: strolling the zoo, rowing in the small lake or renting a surrey bike to explore the grounds. And, of course, there's the Galleria Borghese museum full of amazing sculptures including three of Bernini's most famous works. (Advance tickets may be needed fro... 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.
