Built by architect Flaminio Ponzio in the 17th century, Villa Borghese was once the private suburban estate of Scipione Borghese, a prominent cardinal and an avid art collector. This estate on the edge of Rome includes a villa with an extensive art collection that Borghese assembled over several decades. The sprawling estate covers about 80 hectares (200 acres) and includes one of Rome's most celebrated parks and landscape gardens. Designed in the naturalistic English manner and developed from sketches drawn by Borghese himself, the well-maintained gardens now attract art lovers, walkers, cyclists, and picnickers. You can rent bicycles at several points around the park.

Villa Borghese Reviews
ボルゲーゼ美術館を鑑賞後にフラミニオまで歩きました。起伏のある土地に施設が点在していて公園全体は緑がとても多いです。途中バスに乗ろうかとも思いましたが、駅までは下り坂なので歩いてみました。昼間は日差しが強く少々バテました。 more »After viewing the Borghese Museum, we walked to Flaminio. Facilities are scattered in the undulating land, and the whole park is very green. I thought about taking a bus on the way, but I walked down hill to the station. The sun was strong and a little hot during the day.
Απο τα ωραιοτερα σημεια της Ρωμης ΟΙ εικονες της φυσης ...γεμιζουν την ψυχη σου Πεντακαθαρο, καταπρασινο, ενα θαυμα!!!! more »From the Oreotera points of romis THE icons of nature... They fill your soul with pure, green, a miracle!!!!
Such a fun park! It is a wide open park near the top of the hill with a lot of things to do like museums, a zoo, places to eat, ruins to see, and a lot of walking too. The park is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. There are a lot of stations that rent out bicycles and karts and I would highly recommend you rent them. The costs are not much. 12€ for one hour for a two seater. The park is vast and you will need these bikes to cover all the grounds. In fact, we rented it for 1 hour and only saw maybe 3/4 of the entire area. Maybe less! Also, it is loads of fun. There are shaded areas too because of all the trees so no worries visiting it in the mid day. Also, spectacular views overlooking Rome. Definitely check this park out if you have time to spare in Rome!!
Big park, best thing to see is the lake. Can rent golf carts/ bikes/ bicycles, quad cycles in order to cover more ground faster. Super annoying people force you to take flowers and bracelets for "free" and than asks for donations. Once you refuse to give them any money they will take back those "free" items. Just push them away and ignore them!
