Visited here with husband and daughter, had a great day here. Hired a rickshaw type vehicle and drove around a bit, great fun. Then walked to the lake garden, so beautiful. Lots of places to have lunch/picnic here. There is a zoo and lots of little play parks too. Great place to escape the crowds of the city and enjoy... More

You can see Rome from the gardens. Beautiful place, with lots of busts of famous people including Leonardo Da Vinci. Accepts Rome Pass which is very convenient, but unfortunately, we did not get the chance to see the gallery.

Villa borghese is magical. It's really big and its parts are different. It is shaped like a heart, in the heart of Rome! You can walk and enjoy the green, have a picnic, drink the fresh water from the small fountains , visit Galleria Borghese ( which is amazing!), eat in fancy restaurants or take a coffee . You can...

We were sceptical, whether or not should we visit Villa Borghese (an endless park with many trees, museums and a lake) I am glad we finally went there, it was a pleasant break from the tight touring programm. Don't forget to takε a boat;ing in the lake.

Villa Borghese is the spot where you can refill your energy and get the best impressions. It's not only the cultural attraction but also the nice place to relax walking around the park territory. You may like unbelievable plants, wonderful flowers and fantastic fruits. Whenever you are tired you may find a comfortable bench to relax. To my mind, Villa... More

Only two of our party were up to the walk from our accommodation next to the forum. A lovely walk uphill to the museum in the park just on from Spanish steps. Museum is in the park along with restaurants and a replica Globe theatre. As you enter the Park just past the Medici villa pause to look down over... More

We enjoyed a walk in this park and went from the NH hotel at one corner to the Piazza on the other side. The park is nothing special but a nice spot to walk in this chaotic and busy city

Spent the last day of our Rome weekend here ... 20 min walk from Termini. Lovely way to unwind after 2 days of intensive site seeing. Bring a packed lunch although there are several food vending places along the way. Make your way to the Flaminio gate and site 72 where you will be gob smacked at the very impressive... 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.
