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.
As the above title suggests, we got lost on the way to the Galleria, which we think is not unusual, as all the maps around the Gardens were surrounded by other baffled people, and we arrived late. However, the GetYourGuide representative managed to get replacement tickets for us, which, from the reviews of other visitors, are not always allowed. The sculptures and paintings are magnificent, and we were glad not to have missed them.
Very easy to purchase the vouchers online. Great communication via email. It would have been great if the company rep on site had a banner identifying that this is where to come and exchange the vouchers for tickets. We stood in a line for 10 minutes and then found out we were in the wrong place.
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.
A truly riveting experience, art, history, brought to life all under one roof . A walk through time brought together by an extremely informative guide which made it an experience not to be missed. We have used this guide site before and have never been disappointed. Thank You from all of us
