Piazza di Spagna, Rome –
The glorious Villa Borghese is a vast, beautiful park that offers visitors and citizens alike a much-needed oasis from the congested city streets.
Among the many museums and cultural attractions within the park is Galleria Borghese, where visitors can admire the sculptural masterpieces of Bernini and paintings by Titian, Raphael, and Caravaggio, not to mention the majestic villa itself.
Film and music buffs can take advantage of cinema events at the Villa Medici in the summer or of the occasional open-air concerts held at various locations on the grounds.
Outdoor highlights include the Piazza di Siena, the botanical garden, an amphitheater, unparalleled views of the city skyline, countless blooming fields perfect for reading, jogging, or cycling, and a serene lake where visitors gather at the foot of the Temple of Aesculapius to sunbathe, picnic, or float by in rented paddleboats.
Villa Borghese spans almost a full quarter of the city’s total area, but bikes, rollerblades, and electric scooters are available for rent, making it possible to cover the territory with ease. For the ultimate in rentable transport, however, groups might want to try the covered four-person bikes – great for a crew of friends to cruise through the park in tandem.
