Gallery Borghese is worth a visit if you like sculptures of dead people and mainly religious artwork! The ceiling frescos are quite stunning. You will see everything in an hour.

This is a hidden gem in Rome. I couldn't get enough of the sculpture. They are breath taking. The second floor is paintings and can be skipped. The paintings are very similar to the rest of Rome and I didn't need to see more madonnas....More

Our first time in Rome and the weather was glorious so we decided to make the most of it and have a stroll round the park. It's a lovely place, a real oasis. We see almost all.

We were delighted with our English guided tour of Villa Borghese. It was evident from the start that Georgia, our guide, loves art history. Her selection of pieces for discussion from the gallery's extensive collection varied by artist as well as art medium. She also...More

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

Yes. It’s a free public park. We rented boats which you have to pay for but it was only €3 each. I think you have to pay to go into the museum but we didn’t go in.
