Borghese Gardens - Rome Italy

Villa Borghese

Cities and Towns in Rome

The 'Villa Borghese' in Rome, Italy is an enormous park filled with gorgeous gardens, temples, statues and art collection, considered one of the most important in Italy and Europe. 

Visiting these grounds, is something far too few visitors to Rome ever get to experience and it is such a shame, considering visiting the park is one of the greatest free sites for visitors to Rome to visit.  Only the gallery has an admission cost, where guided tours area allowed, however wandering through the park's grounds is a totally free experience much like Central Park in New York or other city parks, so we recommend taking the afternoon or morning to simply wander through at a leisurely pace.  

The Villa Borghese is the third largest public park in Rome (80 hectares or 197.7 acres) after the ones of the Villa Doria Pamphili and Villa Ada, which are equally outanding and beautiful to discover in their own right, but with only a few days in Rome, we highly recommend exploring the Villa Borghese park which is just behind Piazza Del Popolo, close to the Spanish Steps and other main attractions in Rome, which may be closer to where you may be staying.  

Inside the gardens, you will find a large lake, where at the middle of it there is an 18th century "Temple of Aesculapius" where lovers, children, families come to enjoy a quick row-boat around it. 

Strolling through the gardens, enjoying the wonderful gallery and just being at peace with the wonderful Mediterranean nature and green space is a wonderful way to really experience Roman life.

We can take you here and guide you through it, though you don't really need a guide... just to wander and get lost! 

Italy Vacation Specialists can arrange many special activities for you including picnics, wonderful adventures for children and much more!

Client Testimonials

In August 2018, my family of four and myself travelled from Vancouver, BC to Rome Italy and spent 3 weeks touring Italy with IVS.

This company had come highly recommended by many friends and associates of ours who had used them before and indeed to say they do an outstanding job is an understatement. You can tell while being in Italy that it is one complicated place to run tours in, just by the sheer nature of the place. There are many rules and we noticed traffic complications in a variety of places which this company being on the ground, advised us of and made sure we were not caught up in it.

Overall, our experience was truly outstanding and we plan on going back to Italy in the future, this time hopefully without our kids and definitely using this company again. Nothing but good things to say about the entire experience!
