We didn't visit the gallery but rented a bike to cycle around the park. It's a lovely park and a great place for families!

We are both serious consumers of art and architecture, and were absolutely overwhelmed with the Museo Borghese and its environs.

If you are not found of long sightseeing and you can stand only 2-3 hours this gallery is perfect. It has great art there – Bernini, Tiziano, Raffaello, Caravaggio etc. It has wonderful gardens around and it is great place to relax and be in the shadow during hot days. If you want to save yourself time I recommend to... More

Art of the highest quality and interest - particularly its sculptures and paintings. Visits are timed, and time-restricted (to 2 hours) - it does not really give you enough time to study and appreciate this extraordinarily beautiful and compelling collection. But despite that, it is an Essential in your visit to Rome.

This is a lovely place to visit if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. It would be a perfect place to bring a picnic in the summer. Don't miss the amazing view of Rome either, especially when the sun is setting!

We thoroughly enjoyed bicycling and strolling through the park as a low key day during our trip. We rented a bicycle for two, had beverages in the park, strolled past the sites and statues, and visited the zoo. It was a perfect fall day in the park away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

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.
