Villa Borghese charges the same entry fee (20 Euros) as the Vatican and offers less than a tenth of the experience. For the hefty ticket price, you get a whopping 3 (small) floors through which to wander. On the up side, if you appreciate art and interior design, they have some nice pieces (very few masters) and the rooms are... More

I went to this museum to admire the sculpture of Apollo and Daphne by Bernini. However, there was a lot more to it, including Judith with the beheaded Holofernes. If you are into Baroque art and history, this is the place to be!

The art is amazing here. It is highly recommend to book as you only have 2 hours inside max - more than enough. The food down stairs isn't great however.

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
