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.

Hermoso paseo por sus parques y obras magníficas de Bernini y Caravaggio, que quitan el aliento. Amplios espacios recorribles a los que se suman esculturas únicas que se pueden apreciar y casi tocar more »Beautiful walk through its parks and magnificent works of Bernini and Caravaggio, which take their breath away. Ample open spaces to which are added unique sculptures that can be appreciated and almost touch
Fantastic museum, definitely worth a visit, especially if you know what pieces you especially want to see. They use allocated time slots in order to maintain numbers to a reasonable level. One we tip I'd say is, our slot was on the hour, however we just happened to see if we could get in @ xx:35, just a bit earlier. It turned out to be the perfect time, got our tickets collected, bags checked in and then able to go back upstairs to queue to get in nice and close to the door. I also recommend taking the time to go around the park, really nice for a walk, or a cycle if you take one of the pedal car/things.
Nice park in the city of Rome. A must see for everyone when visiting Rome. Close to the Spanish stairs. Great big park with lots to do or just to enjoy the peace fullness. Also the gallery into this park is a Must See. But reserve your tickets a long time before you go.
