Gorgeous green space. There are bits that look like Central Park, and it's a shame not more people jog through here (or maybe that's better so runners have more space). There's a cute little "casina" to have lunch or a midafternoon merenda. The view you want, however, is from the Pincho...wow. In fact, I wonder if it's better than the view from il Vittoriano. It kind of reminds me of looking out from atop Parc Güell, except you're looking over Piazza del Popolo and Rome rather than Barcelona.

So many people pass up Villa Borghese when visiting Rome. To me it was my escape in the city. The park really is massive - you could wander around all day. The trees envelop you and the little fountains, benches, and museums throughout are not to be missed. Such a great way to escape the crowds and appreciate the beauty or Rome. Don't miss the fantastic look-out point above Piazza del Popolo!

I'm hard-pressed to find a more beautiful park in the world. Perhaps it's because there are remnants of history proliferated about that makes it so much more mesmerizing than any other park I've been to in the world.
Villa Borghese is Rome's expansive natural playground. With great museums inside, notably the Galleria Borghese and the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, it's a place of rest AND culture. The lake provides some boating time, and there are plenty of spots to lay about with a loved one as the Romans do.

My favourite park in Rome; you can walk and have a relax inside a wonderful nature. I love to go around the park by bicycle and to reach the cinema house to take a coffee. I love the children library 'La casina di Raffaello' and the playground area in front of it. There is a small lake and you can rent a boat to have a romatic tour.Recommended for:Family Travelers

This place has a unique charm in a city filled with priceless history and unique charms. Went for a stroll here just after sunrise while the rest of my family was still sleeping--fell in love with it
A massive park, originally, the private property of a vatican family (the Borgias--yup, just like the tv show) it is now a public park with equestrian grounds, a full size and in-use replica of London's Globe Theatre, fountains, Villas and Art Museums, a Zoo, a Lake for boating, endless paths for walking, and countless street and walkways named after famous historical figures. My favorite "Via Georgio Washington"

I've always loved the Villa Borghese for its umbrella pines, beautiful landscaping, and the Borghese Gallery, which houses my favourite sculpture EVER, Bernini's Dafne and Apollo. I love it even more since they put free WIFI in the whole durn park. Who says Rome can't be modern?

I wish we had more days in Rome, so we could just sit in the sun in the very large Villa Borghese gardens. This is the main park in Rome where you have also the opportunity to rent a bicycle and ride the long walks to arrive at the villa itself, turned into a museum.

Sit under the umbrella pines and surf the free wifi, or just stroll through the green expanses of Villa Borghese, one of Rome's most beautiful parks. It's all free, so take your time and savor every moment.

This is the most famous park in Rome. It is in the very center, very close to Piazza del Popolo, and it is very large and cover a big area. People go here for jogging or just taking few steps. There are fountains, big trees, a theatre, a museum and also a zoo.

Built by an important Roman family (Scipione Borghese was a Renaissance cardinal and supporter of the arts), these beautiful gardens, museums, and buildings make up the second largest public park in Rome. The gardens themselves are modeled after the naturalistic English style and are ideal for strolling, picnics, and impromptu jam sessions.
