5 must-sees in the Villa Borghese

Rome's Villa Borghese Gardens provide a holiday within a holiday! Once built as the grounds of an opulent estate, the large park boasts multiple attractions, including one of Italy's leading art galleries! Here's what to see and do on your visit.

Galleria Borghese

Galleria Borghese

The Borghese Gallery is the grounds' premier attraction, boasting masterpieces from Raphael, Bernini, and Caravaggio, among many others.

Cinema Dei Piccoli

This quaint oddity at the park's southeasternmost entrance is the world's smallest purpose-built cinema! With just 63 seats, it screens kids movies most afternoons.

Globe Theatre

An exact replica of Shakespeare's famous Globe Theatre in London. The Bard's plays are performed only in Italian, but you can't understand them in English anyway, right?

Lake Garden

Lake Garden

On a sunny day there are few better things to do in Rome than feed the birds or row a rented boat around the Villa's beautifully landscaped Lake Garden.

Bioparco di Roma

Rome's zoo and biopark can be found at the north of the gardens. Highlights include a giraffe terrace, where visitors can meet the lanky beasts face-to-face!

What people are saying about Villa Borghese

Love art? you'll love the Boughese. The statues are simply stunning.

A stunning collection with some signature pieces. Clean, tidy and well presented, you will enjoy the whole experience but the ceilings and sculptures are truly amazing. Free bag drop downstairs allows you to relax and walk freely. The coffee shop in the basement was good and fairly priced too. We are now Bernini fans..

An amazing gallery in the palace not to be missed

This museum was more interesting because of its collection of Bernini sculptures, Caravaggio paintings & Picasso sculptures.

Wonderful commentary on highlights of Gallery and garden.

Very-well paced. One could easily spend two hours in just one room. Our guide chose exquisite pieces (painting as well as sculpture) for us to view, with great commentary not only on the art, but also on the lively, not to say lurid, history of Scipio Borghese and his relatives. Highly recommended.

Frederico had a passion for Bernini and made me feel the same

I always loved Bernini's But Federico had a true passion for it His very informative tour has made me feel the same passion.
