Museum is in the park along with restaurants and a replica Globe theatre. As you enter the Park just past the Medici villa pause to look down over... More

We enjoyed a walk in this park and went from the NH hotel at one corner to the Piazza on the other side. The park is nothing special but a nice spot to walk in this chaotic and busy city

Spent the last day of our Rome weekend here ... 20 min walk from Termini. Lovely way to unwind after 2 days of intensive site seeing. Bring a packed lunch although there are several food vending places along the way. Make your way to the Flaminio gate and site 72 where you will be gob smacked at the very impressive... More

You must make an appointment (even in off season) which will allow you to buy a ticket for an exact time. This will give you less than 2 hours to see all the amazing works of art. They are very strict at making you leave on time, actually 10 minutes early. So watch your time to be sure you get... More

This is a large park which has something for everyone: at one end there are panoramic views over the city, at the other end there is the art gallery, a replica Shakespearean 'globe' theatre, tree-lined avenues and so on. It is a good place to cycle around and you can hire go-carts and pedal cars in the park. There are... More

Ok. Go there. The museum is awesome. Paintings and sculptures... Hundreds of them. I and my girlfriend have found a ticket to enter just for 4 hours later. So, we walked around. There's an amaaaaaaaaaazing zoo just 200 hundreds meters from the museum. It's awesome!! Beautiful place! Loved it! (Who would thinking about visiting a zoo in Rome?????)

Villa Borghese Is my absolutely favorite place in Rome! There were so many possibilities for family time or for couples or just if you need some alone time away from the hectic places! Such a wonderful peaceful place.

Most people will give this a miss as its not got the wow factor that the big attractions have but what you will miss out on is one of the best panoramic views of the Rome skyline , also a great place to chill out in the park with a bottle of wine and some pizza and watch the world... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
