Scenic, some hills, close to the zoo. Great park to run in. There are enough food stands to purchase snacks and water. There is also a place to rent bicycles for four, or single bicycles. Relaxing and plenty of shade. Wide roads and paths.

A fabulous large park in the middle of the city. We spent the day exploring on bikes that can be hired within the park. We had a beautiful sunny day and explored the whole park which also has a zoo in the corner of it.

These are good things to know in advance. I did not actually see the exhibit. I am sure it was good, but people should know that tickets need to be booked in advance, which is not something considered for a museum. Also, leaving your purse with security takes a LOT of trust... I would not have been comfortable with this....... More

I acually managed to walk the bulk of teh perimeter of the Villa Borghese Park yesterday! For starters, know that objects on maps are closer then they appear on the map, so if you do want to get from point A to point B across the garden, it's not such a big deal. Also, know that the maps are pretty... More

Wonderful park next to piazza del poppolo. Good for relaxing, walking by and taking pictures. You can rent a cycle and make a quick trip. Just go on that stairs. Don't be lazy.

Enjoy a bicycle ride through the park of Villa Borghese. Bring a lunch and enjoy a romantic lunch or a fund day out with your family. We did not get to see inside Villa Borghese, so be sure to plan your time for that visit!

This review excludes the museum or gallery as the park itself can be enjoyed for free and has some interesting and places. There are interesting buildings, temples, race track, and dog area that provide entertaining experience. There are some street entertainers as well and seems to be something going on all the time. It is beautiful park with good walks... More

We loved both the grounds and the museum. However, we used Viator's Skip the Lines, and were very disappointed. That only paid for entry to the museum, NOT a guide. I later discovered that if we had gone through the official museum website, we could have signed up for the guided tour, which is highly recommended. By the time we... More

We found this beautiful place by accident and are glad we did as it got us away from the hustle and bustle for a while. Plenty to do and see from the museum and gallery to just walking round the park. The park itself is a lovely place to be in. There is a lake where you could hire a... More

It's been nearly 40 years since I spent a summer nearby and the museum has been completely overhauled. It was a pleasure to see it professionally managed. I encourage people to sign up for a tour or rent the audio. It is simply overwhelming in its scope. And purchase tickets ahead of time during tourist season. Timed entry only.

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.
