Did you know that Rome hosts also beautiful parks? One of the nicer and the most important is Villa Borghese, a green area in the heart of Rome: a combination of gardens, groves, avenues and monuments that really worth a visit.
Villa Borghese is not only the house of the wonderful Galleria Borghese and other important museums such as the Etruscan one, ore the Modern Art Gallery; I will guide you through the hidden places of this public park, to discover different aspects of this beautiful villa...
The third biggest park of Rome after those of Villa Pamphili and Villa Ada has an extension of 94 hectares and a perimeter of 5 km; its maximum height reaches the quota of 60 meters over the sea level, and for this reason you can enjoy a delightful ventilated weather even during summer season.
For 300 years property of the Borghese family and since 1893 of the city council of Rome, Villa Borghese has a long tradition of hospitality. And now it's waiting for you!
From the entrance of the park in front of Porta Pinciana, one of the gates of the Aurelian Walls, we're going to discover statues dedicated to famous writers, romantic poets and martyrs (and even a monument dedicated to the king Umberto I!), important buildings, wonderful fountains with mythological creatures, Roman temples and arches, green squares designed for the entertainment and much more.
The tour ends at the Pincio (near the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo), a wonderful terrace from where you can have a beautiful view of Rome, recognizing the most famous monuments of the eternal city.
