It isn't fake in the sense of anyone deceiving you. It is a lovely green space for residents and as a plaxr to take a walk. But as a tourist I didn't get much from it. Walking around the Forum's green spaces (behind Palatine hill) was much more interesting to me personally

Booked a skip the line ticket. No one there to meet you and no trip advisor refuses to dona refund. The museum said this happens all the time and they were sold out. The skip the line tickets through viator and loving rome are a scam. No promised 48 confirmation email was ever sent.

We lived close to this place and almost every morning were walking there. A gorgeous garden in the center of the city. It feels like you are not in Rome but somewhere in a paradise with beautiful trees, singing birds and coolness.

Villa Borghese is a huge park in the center of Rome, where people meet for any occasion, a walk, jogging, walking with the dog, cycling and for millions of other reasons.
Every roman, every tourist knows this place for its majesty and beauty.
We come often and every time it is like the first time.
This wonderful park is suitable for all ages and occasions: with the children, with friends, a romantic walk, a run ...
Maybe it needs to be better maintained.
We always look for the less famous and more hidden corners.
There is always so much to discover.

Very large gardens right in the center of Rome.
Located near Piazza di Popolo.
A very nice place to relax from the noise of the city and especially suitable with small children.
In the center there is a nice café.
Worth a visit

I walked through one hot summer day and it was a relief from the city. Lots of trees, statues, art pieces, lagoons, and some monuments.
Lots of families and couples chilling and walking along. There's a small lake with rowing boats, two museum within the park, and mini-bikes to rent. Glad I decided to walk through.

Villa Borghese is the park I always return to when I visit Rome. It is huge in size (190 acres) and spectacular at every corner of it. Gorgeous alleys, meadows, green pine groves, the lake, the fountains of all styles, and numerous monuments to famous people... everything is delightful. The jewel in the park is the Borghese family palazzo, home to the most wonderful paintings and masterpieces of sculpture (think the best of Bernini!).

You can walk on the Villa Borghese alley for hours and in any weather... light rain makes it even more romantic.

The park is a treat both for kids and dogs, cyclists and walkers, old and young. This ageless treasure of Rome is such a soothing spot to relax from busy sightseeing in the Eternal City. It is never too crowded and always spectacular.

Limited occupancy and mandatory reservations set this amazing museum apart from the others. You are afforded the bliss of being alone in a room with the works of Bernini, Canova, and Caravaggio. The collection is remarkable and well-spaced. The gardens are a delight to meander through when finished visiting the museum.

If you only plan one thing ahead for your Rome trip, please pick this museum. The collection is small but stunning. It made my trip to Rome.

Villa Borghese is a nice place to visit and take a walk. It has some wonderful man-made lakes and walking paths. The park is the home of the Borghese Gallery. It has one of the finest collections of art in Rome. The Gallery was closed because of the pandemic. It should not be missed.
