By far my favorite place in Rome, I have visited three times already because these work of art will really take your breath away! Fact that you can stay inside only two hours makes it a bit rushed, but the overall impression is beyond words!

Of course the art gets five stars. But if you want to see it then you have to take part in the scam where it is next to impossible to get an entrance ticket at the claimed price. You have to go on a guided...More

A great place to stroll! Better yet rent a bike in the park (take a form of ID you can leave as well as a deposit). Beautiful garden and lovely buildings. Take a lunch and enjoy

Plenty to do for the family, bikes, play area, zoo- lots of space for the children to let off steam and have some fun.

It's a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Despite Rome is a beautiful city, I imagine it becomes too much every now and then. Beautiful place to visit, and have a romantic walk (which we did), there is a nice little...More

If you want to see incredible sculpture presented perfectly, this is where you go. People travel from all over the world to visit, and they are not disappointed. Go, soak it in, and leave transformed.....

This lovely park is not crowded with tourists, who don't even know about it. The biggest draw is the Galleria Borghese, which has some of the most amazing paintings and sculptures in Italy, including Bernini's Apollo and Daphne.

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

Trying to decide whether to take metro/bus or Uber/taxi to enjoy the gardens only. If taking taxi, which entrance has the easiest, most direct way into the park to be dropped off at with the least amount of steps. Would it be the Porta Pinciana entrance? I'm sure the metro bus stops at Pinciana also, but the metro stop at the Piazza Popolo entrance appears to have a lot of steps and then another hike into the park...can anyone confirm this? Which would be the easiest way in, trying to save a little time and the knees! Thank you

Having walked in and out of the park through Piazza Popolo I would say that would be a good option for you. From the piazza it is not a far walk and there was a little elevation but nothing too difficult. A taxi or uber can... More

The boats cost 3 euro for 20 minutes per person and there are discounts for kids. They don’t charge per boat, but per person, so don’t feel the need to couple up to save money.
