Villa Borghese is a large landscape garden in the naturalistic English manner in Rome, containing a number of buildings, museums (for example Galleria Borghese) and attractions.

Lake in Villa Borghese park


It is the second largest public park in Rome (80 hectares or 148 acres) after that of the Villa Doria Pamphili.

The fresh atmosphere and natural beauty of this park stands in strong contrast to the lively city of Rome.

I enjoy taking a relaxed walk along the little pathways, lying next to the large pond reading a book, and finally admiring the breathtaking view over the city from ‘Il Pincio’, the a point high over Piazza del Popolo.
