Beautiful extensive park to wander round under the shade of trees to escape the heat. We walked up from the Piazza del Popolo which was a tough climb on the legs with steep uneven pathways & steps at times so would probably not recommended taking...More

I spent 5/6 hours and they weren't enough to see everything. I went for a walk in the gardens, rented a nice bike and explored, I went to the zoo and I wanted to see the Borghese gallery but unfortunately the tickets were sold out....More

I was a little bit disappointed. No green grass or anything green. It was all dried up. There was a little pond where you could row with a boat. But it was really expensive. I liked that there were many seats. But in general I...More

You can easily spend a day in the beautiful gardens/park of Villa Borghese. The art gallery has some unexpected treasures (Raphael, Botticelli etc.). Recommended!

--AUG 2015-- Good but once you've seen one set of paintings in Rome, you've seen them all. You have to drop bags in a cloakroom and have to be at the door of the museum (on a different floor) at the time of your ticket...More

Surprisingly, there's no villa at Villa Borghesse. What there is is a beautiful park with a lake and lots of trees. There is a charming cafe that is not ridiculously priced. There is even a scaled down version of the Globe Theatre!

Coming from London where there are parks-a-plenty, I was pleasantly surprised when I decided to go for a run while holidaying with my husband in Rome. It's absolutely stunning, dotted with an array of waterfalls and old roman statues/monuments. Some of the grass was parched...More

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

I believe that the ticket price is not refundable, although it is likely that if you speak to them they will allow a change in reservation to a time when you can make it. However, they are usually booked at least a week in... More

Having walked in and out of the park through Piazza Popolo I would say that would be a good option for you. From the piazza it is not a far walk and there was a little elevation but nothing too difficult. A taxi or uber can... More
