Full description
Explore the lush gardens of Villa Borghese, known as the "green heart" of the city, on a guided tour. Discover the various sections of the garden including the densely wooded area of "Recinto Oscuro”, the “Parco dei Daini” named for the presence of deer species, and "Barco" where contemporary exhibitions are hosted. Admire “Loggia dei Vini”, a place where princes once organized outdoor lunches and events throughout the summer months. See the “Giardino dell’Uccelliera” which served as a private aviary for exotic birds. Visit the Tempietto di Diana and the Tempio di Esculapio, located in the middle of the small lake on the grounds. Learn more about some of the artwork housed in the Borghese Gallery, which you can visit after your tour of the gardens.

Despite difficulties in finding the meeting point, Fabio, our guide, captivated us by making us discover the gardens of Villa Borghese. A visit full of anecdotes and contextualizations that we really liked to end our day in Rome

despite our missed appointment, we were lucky to have a super nice and very professional guide Mariaza. Everything went well with the charm and the view of the villa of Borghese.
