It has great art there – Bernini, Tiziano, Raffaello, Caravaggio etc. It has wonderful gardens around and it is great place to relax and be in the shadow during hot days.

Art of the highest quality and interest - particularly its sculptures and paintings. Visits are timed, and time-restricted (to 2 hours) - it does not really give you enough time to study and appreciate this extraordinarily beautiful and compelling collection. But despite that, it is an Essential in your visit to Rome.

Fantastic place in the heart of Rome, if you are traveling to Rome you must visit villa borghese! Amazing collection of antique era of paintings and statues in all around of that place. Recommend to visit!

This is a lovely place to visit if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. It would be a perfect place to bring a picnic in the summer. Don't miss the amazing view of Rome either, especially when the sun is setting!

We thoroughly enjoyed bicycling and strolling through the park as a low key day during our trip. We rented a bicycle for two, had beverages in the park, strolled past the sites and statues, and visited the zoo. It was a perfect fall day in the park away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

It was a beautiful Park, filled with outdoor art, statues etc. The view of the piazza del Popolo was nice, too. You could even see the San pietro Cathedral. It took a while to get there on foot and it was tiring, but it was worth it. I am sure there are buses to take, but I did not look... More

I wanted to visit the Villa but when I booked it went directly for a booking on Wednesday and not on Sunday. Meanwhile a fee for 3 tickets was taken from my account. I have written 6-7 e-mails and no feed-back at all. It is a beautiful place but this type of attitude towards visitors is unacceptable.

We're so glad we got tickets ahead for the small tour group of Borghese. Don't expect to get them upon arrival, plan ahead for this wonderful opportunity. We fell in love with the Bernini sculptures and here there is a huge collection! Plus so much more, elegant, enormous number of works, art that you've always dreamed of seeing in person.... 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.
