Top sights in Rome
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.
The Borghese Gallery is the grounds' premier attraction, boasting masterpieces from Raphael, Bernini, and Caravaggio, among many others.
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.
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?
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.
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!
The Galleria Borghese is open from 8:30AM to 7:30PM Tuesday to Sunday. It is closed every Monday, as well as December 25th and January 1st. Book tickets in advance to beat the queues!

What people are saying about Villa Borghese
After being herded through several museums in Rome, our Borghese visit was a special time. Having a limited number of people in the gallery at one time meant it was easy to hear our guide, you could ask questions, you could actually see the art close up!!! Our guide was both interesting and highly knowledgeable. The walk through the gardens before the gallery opened was a memorable way to start the day. Borghese was pretty low on our list of things to see in Rome, but it turned out to be a bright spot during our time there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our personal guided tour of Galleria Borghese. As an option you can enjoy the gallery as a self guided tour, however, our personal guide, Elizabeth, not only provided historical detail but also explained from her personal knowledge (she’s born and raised in Rome) and her academic background in archeology. Highly recommended!!
Well organised entry. Slots limited to 2 hours, ensures the venue never gets overcrowded. Not a tour, but audio available and some (well worn) laminated sheets also available for some items. Fantastic exhibits, Just felt a bit lost sometimes on what we were looking at! Good cafe and bookshop.
Wonderful tour. The guide was outstanding. Some of us are not as young as we used to be and the gallery might consider providing a little more seating so we oldsters can get off our feet for a couple of minutes.
The galleria brings you in old Rome with his sculptures and paintings. It's in some nice park where you can spend your time for a whole day in nature...no cars, no trafic...good to rest in the best way
