Rome's Villa Borghese Gardens provide a holiday within a holiday! Once built as the grounds of an opulent estate, the large park boasts multiple attractions, including one of Italy's leading art galleries! Here's what to see and do on your visit.
The Borghese Gallery is the grounds' premier attraction, boasting masterpieces from Raphael, Bernini, and Caravaggio, among many others.
This quaint oddity at the park's southeasternmost entrance is the world's smallest purpose-built cinema! With just 63 seats, it screens kids movies most afternoons.
An exact replica of Shakespeare's famous Globe Theatre in London. The Bard's plays are performed only in Italian, but you can't understand them in English anyway, right?
On a sunny day there are few better things to do in Rome than feed the birds or row a rented boat around the Villa's beautifully landscaped Lake Garden.
Rome's zoo and biopark can be found at the north of the gardens. Highlights include a giraffe terrace, where visitors can meet the lanky beasts face-to-face!
The Galleria Borghese is open from 8:30AM to 7:30PM Tuesday to Sunday. It is closed every Monday, as well as December 25th and January 1st. Book tickets in advance to beat the queues!

What People Are Saying About Villa Borghese
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.
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!
A great Segway experience with Olef. Taught us to ride the Segway then expertly guided us around the amazing city of Rome. His knowledge of Rome is to be applauded and his delivery was great too. A really great and fun way to see thus amazing city.
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.
I have to say this was my absolute favourite part of my weekend break in Rome. Take a few mins to get used to it....but follow their instructions and you'll up and running sooner than you think. Santi - the guy/guide who took us round for the tour - was absolutely brilliant! Well informed and not too detailed to bore you to tears. Kept us moving along and chatting as we went. We covered so much ground over the course of the 3 hours on the Segway (was great fun whizzing past everyone else walking miles by foot!) Which allowed us to briefly see lots of the main sights, take photos and help us decide which ones to go back and visit in more detail/pay to get into (eg the colosseum) later in the weekend. I'd recommend doing this tour right at the start of your stay to get the most benefit. Segway and Santi are FAR FAR better than doing the open top bus tours which whizz past everything at speed and spend ages sat at bus stops :( DO IT!! You won't be disappointed
