We had planned to spend only a few hours in the Borghese gardens above the Piazza del Popolo but wound up spending almost an entire day. We began on the wide overlook of the Piazza del Popolo, which provided incredible views of the city. There was also a Salvation Army concert which we stayed to hear. From the lookout (from... More

The promise was to learn interesting and funny stories about the paintings, the skulptures and the artists. Our guide Pia was a high professional person who fulfilled all the promises and explained difficult historic aspects easy to understand and with a lot humor. We really enyoyed. Thanks.

Spent an hour or two around the gardens. I had initially wanted to go into the museum but my partner isn't a big fan of art. Instead we decided to hire some segways (15 euros for an hour) to see all of the gardens. They are absolutely beautiful, and it was a lovely day. A very relaxing and enjoyable time... More

We walked to Villa Borghese from the Spanish Steps, about 10 minutes walk. The view of Rome from the wide balcony is very nice, especially during sunset. We rented family bikes and peddled for an hour, it was great to tour the nice park by bike.

It was January 1, 2017 and lots of places were closed so we decided to take a stroll to the park. Really beautiful, scenic and although busy, was very peaceful.

A must see in Rome. Not only the amazing park but the museum also, with the famous sculptures of Bernini. Note that you have to book in advance your tickets and that is an every 2 hour entry in the museum so you can manage your time. After the museum is great to walk the park towards the Pincio, where...

We took the 910 bus from Termini to Villa Borghese and discovered the return service was suspended when we tried to get back to Termini...really poor. We walked back to town, but were foot sore and weary. We also bought drinks in Villa Borghese (fresh squeezed pomegranate and a cafe latte) and were told the adjacent toilets were only for... More

Located north from the spagna this is a lovely quiet corner of Rome.We hired out a segway for an hour to see all of it to save some time and not get tired out for the rest of the day.This park has views of the vatican ect.. as it is on a hill.

Ideal place for families with children since you can go to the zoo (the entrance fee is quite expensive), rent a bike/segway/surrey bike. The best place to eat here is La casa della musica!!

Beautiful place for walking around, having a picnic, letting kids play, and still see some amazing Roman glories! If the weather is nice, plan to spend time in the gardens.

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.
