Amazing Things to See in and Around the Villa Borghese

The giant park of Villa Borghese has always been dear to the Roman people as the Borghese family opened their estate on Sundays and holidays. It is a green paradise overlooking the city, a respite from chaotic Rome, a truly authentic Italian experience.

View Rome From the Pincian Hill

From the heights of "Pinicio" you can gaze upon a most romantic view of the Eternal City. You can even see Vatican City and St. Peter's Basilica!

Rent A Bike

At 148 acres, Villa Borghese is quite an expansive park. To see it all (in style) best rent yourself a bike! They cost around €4 for an hour, or €10 for the day.

See One of the Many Fountains

There are 12 fountains throughout the park, some modern, some ancient. The sound of running water from a fountain was thought to be calming by the Romans.

Visit Galleria Borghese

The Borghese Gallery consists of 20 rooms across two floors. Some of the most magnificent pieces are 17th century sculptures created specifically for the spaces they occupy.

Admire the Temple of Asclepius

Situated on the lake is a 19th century temple devoted to the Greek god of health and healing. It was inspired by a similar temple in the Stourhead Gardens of Wiltshire, England.

What People Are Saying About Borghese Gardens

In depth, interesting and perfect for what I was looking for

My Guide was amazing she was personable and had so much information about the art and the history of the Borgheses...she was from New York, and has a background in art history which came to life in the experience, to hear about the influences and the people who inspired the paintings as well as the conflicts and the drama that there was with rivalries and scandal...so much fun and having my own guide to interact with and ask questions was the best part.

A fabulous guided tour by Anna who is very devoted to the job she does

Absolutely astonishing to walk around in the most beautiful museum I ever visited in the world! The guided tour by Anna made our visit almost as devoted as she is herself to the art of The Villa Borghesa . Thank you Anna for your knowledge and the experience!

Fantastic museum made better because of Angela, our guide.

Angela made the museum come to life with her passionate story-telling of the history of the artists and the art. Wonderful... We could have enjoyed listening and viewing even longer than 2 hours. By the way, when you book online, it says the tour is 3 hours. Thank you Angela and Get Your Guide tours.

Amazing paintings and statues but bad organisation at entrance

Visitors who have made a reservation in advance are not told that they also have to line up. Visitors are only told that no bags are allowed when they have yet received there tickets, so they have to line up a second time. all these enerving problems of bad or no communication could be solved if there was a written text( in several languages) at the entrance and not only in a folder that you gett after all these misery !
