The giant park of Villa Borghese has always been dear to the Roman people as the Borghese family opened their estate on Sundays and holidays. It is a green paradise overlooking the city, a respite from chaotic Rome, a truly authentic Italian experience.
At 148 acres, Villa Borghese is quite an expansive park. To see it all (in style) best rent yourself a bike! They cost around €4 for an hour, or €10 for the day.
There are 12 fountains throughout the park, some modern, some ancient. The sound of running water from a fountain was thought to be calming by the Romans.
The Borghese Gallery consists of 20 rooms across two floors. Some of the most magnificent pieces are 17th century sculptures created specifically for the spaces they occupy.
Situated on the lake is a 19th century temple devoted to the Greek god of health and healing. It was inspired by a similar temple in the Stourhead Gardens of Wiltshire, England.
Tickets for the museum are always sold out, so they must be purchased at least two weeks prior. Booking by telephone avoids a reservation fee that the online ticketing service charges.
Arrive early, because entry times to the museum are strictly followed. Expect the staff to keep you on your two hour time limit moving from room to room.

What People Are Saying About Borghese Gardens
My Guide was amazing she was personable and had so much information about the art and the history of the Borgheses...she was from New York, and has a background in art history which came to life in the experience, to hear about the influences and the people who inspired the paintings as well as the conflicts and the drama that there was with rivalries and scandal...so much fun and having my own guide to interact with and ask questions was the best part.
Absolutely astonishing to walk around in the most beautiful museum I ever visited in the world! The guided tour by Anna made our visit almost as devoted as she is herself to the art of The Villa Borghesa . Thank you Anna for your knowledge and the experience!
Angela made the museum come to life with her passionate story-telling of the history of the artists and the art. Wonderful... We could have enjoyed listening and viewing even longer than 2 hours. By the way, when you book online, it says the tour is 3 hours. Thank you Angela and Get Your Guide tours.
Visitors who have made a reservation in advance are not told that they also have to line up. Visitors are only told that no bags are allowed when they have yet received there tickets, so they have to line up a second time. all these enerving problems of bad or no communication could be solved if there was a written text( in several languages) at the entrance and not only in a folder that you gett after all these misery !
This was a fantastic experience all made by the excellent guide Rebecca who was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject matter. Rebecca is a credit to your organisation and hopefully we will meet her again. Martin & Anne.
