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

Enthusiastic, interesting and knowledgeable guide

Emiliano was wonderfu!. He is passionate and enthusiastic about the art. His tour was extremely interesting. He pointed out things I would not have noticed. We feel very lucky to have been placed with him. True highlight of our trip.

The guided tour alone was worth a visit to Rome!

We enjoyed the tour with our guide Lorenzo very much! His enthusiasm and passion for the works of art shown in the Villa Borghese has been conveyed to us. We do highly recommend this tour, especially guided by Lorenzo,

Excellent, extremely knowledgeable guide, Felix.

The museum is a treasure in itself, but with a fun, well informed guide, the experience is remarkable!

Lorenzo is excellent Guide with superb knowledge and a sense of humour

Lorenzo is excellent Guide with superb knowledge and a sense of humour. He really brought the gallery to life. Your team handling arrivals were great too!

A must see if you like Art and Sculpture

We really enjoyed our visit, an added bonus was that we didn't realise there was a tour included which was excellent...you have to have a tour guide to appreciate what you're looking at...a great experience!
