Description

Villa Borghese is the second largest public park in Rome (about 80 hectares) after Villa Pamphilj. In addition to various villas there are also various garden styles present: Italian gardens with large open areas of green; and English manicured gardens with small buildings, fountains and ponds. It covers most of the Pinciano district and partially the Campo Marzio district, which are divided by the Aurelian Walls. The park was previously owned by the Borghese family in 1580, although the estate was enlarged with a series of purchases and acquisitions made by Cardinal Scipione Borghese. Inside Villa Borghese you’ll also find the Borghese Gallery, the Bioparco, the Casina Valadier and Siena's Square.
