Rome is considered one of the most famous and most visited cities in the world and as such is visited by tens of millions of tourists every year. Among the favorite places for visitors to Rome, you will find quite a few spectacular gardens, including the spectacular Villa Borghese gardens.
The gardens of Villa Borghese are a great place to visit in any vehicle – a romantic and fragrant couple’s date at sunset, a visit with the whole family and enjoying the strict but beautiful nature, and also a visit by yourself – the gardens have an abundance of lovely corners to immerse yourself in with a good book and a glass of fine wine and forget your troubles day-to-day
They are known as among the most beautiful gardens in the world, are among the largest gardens in Rome, and are considered one of the most famous tourist attractions in the city. They are spectacular in any season, especially in the transition seasons when they are painted with a multitude of colors and smells, and also in winter, they are considered a particularly romantic sight.
If you were shown a picture of these beautiful gardens, you would probably think that it is a cartoon postcard or a picture taken from some movie and not a real place, but the gardens of Villa Borghese are real, and how else, decorating Rome since the beginning of the 17th century AD and there are many things to see in them and enjoy them.
Among other things, during your visit to the gardens, you will find many elements drawn from the world of French and English design, buildings that present Italian architecture at its peak, a museum, a gallery, a sculpture garden, a zoo, and much more.
Among the places you won’t want to miss during your visit to the gardens:
Villa Borghese Pinchana
A spectacular villa designed by the architect Flaminio Ponzio and Scipione Borghese himself and currently used as a gallery displaying an impressive art collection by well-known artists such as Bernini.
A special villa from the middle of the 16th century that was used as the summer home of Pope Julius III and now houses the Etruscan Museum.
Is a Gothic sculpture garden with impressive sculptures created by the artist Pietro Canonica.
Boating in the lake of Shebani Villa is considered one of the most beautiful areas in it and happily, it offers some nice activities such as boating and watching the geese, and wading in the refreshing water.
The Rome Zoo
Is a great place to visit with children, because, unlike other zoos, this garden is dedicated to the conservation of species that are currently in danger of extinction, and therefore, despite the criticism directed towards zoos in general, it is of great importance and is a wonderful opportunity to educate the younger generation fascinatingly.
In addition to these, you can also enjoy pleasant walking paths, bike and running tracks, a puppet theater, a small cinema (in Italian), and much more.
