    Beautiful place with lots of green, running and biking trails, quiet spots, a zoo, the gorgeous Galleria with Bernini's masterpieces, fresh air... What more could I want? Oh, I also had good company.

    large enough to forget you are in the middle of the city. Meandering paths, lakes, statues, cafes. Nice place to spend a morning or afternoon. Also have bike, cart and segway rentals

    Take bicycle-van at Bici Pincio (12 euros per hour), take a ride! Then bring it back, take away Aperol Spritz at The clock Casina and continue explore the park! Fantastic place!

    Beautiful huge green garden around the galery, with fountains, lake, zoo... Worthy of a few hours or day. Gallery very organized, no crowd inside, beautiful ceilings. Must buy ticket in advance!

    Wonderful, enormous park to enjoy a peaceful, long walk within the limits of the centre of Rome. There is also a pinakotheke but we didn't have time to visit & a zoo, but 16€/person is a lot of money.

    The lungs of Roma; perfect place for wandering around, sitting around with a newspaper or book, or dolce non fa niente, especially on a beautiful hot summer day in July :)

    Lovely scenic views of Rome from here. Can get very busy on summer evenings, but there's so much space you're bound to find your own spot.

    Beautiful park. Really nice to walk around on a sunny day. That said, the public bathrooms are rare or out of order. If you get a free ticket to one of the galleries, you can use the bathrooms there.

    Rent a bike and take a ride across this beautiful park. There is a good panorama at one side and wonderful green places inside. Hidden toilet is just near the panorama place

    Make sure and rent the boats ask a local where the lake is. Lovely restaurant at the entrance / roundabout for lunch. Great Greek salad. Beautiful park.

    Beautiful green space in the center of the city; sunny, impromptu music, dancing, food, and fun. Bikes, skates, skateboards, pedestrians, runners, walkers and sun-baskers should visit here.

    Amazing park with dangerous bicycle carts, be careful to use one. You have to buy tickets online in advance for galleria borghese, you should! incredible work of bernini and caravaggio👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

    The garden is perfect for a picnic. If you go there late on the summer (e.g. August) the grass might be dry and orange though. Beautiful place.

    There are 2 bike hire facilities: Bici Pincio in the south (near V Medici) & Askol in the north (near the zoo). The latter does electric-bikes. You must have a passport or driving licence to hire one.

    Book in advance online. Go downstairs to get your reserved ticket. No bags, need to check them in. Not disabled friendly, left too narrow for wheelchair. Beautiful artifacts. A must: get an audioguide

    One of the most relaxing and beautiful places in this hectic city. Hire a 4-wheel bike/car thing and cruise around the park. Loads of fun and reasonably priced at €12 per hour. Try not to flip it.

    The Villa Borghese is a breath-taking park as well as mansion in which great masterpieces are exhibited. You'll be flabbergasted with the most famous Caravaggio paintings! A must-see.

    Incredible place with master pieces of art from caravaggio, brueghel, boticelli and many others. In busy season reservation is required. It's also worth visiting the park, bikes can be rented.

    Don't leave Rome before visiting this amazing park. You need to have a map in order not to be lost. And also, you have a chance to discover the city on the top.

    Great place to hide from Roman summer heat. If you are with kids spend some time in the zoo as well - we loved it there.

    I was overexcited when I saw our beloved poet, Ferdowsi's sculpture in this park. The park atmosphere was also very lively, green and clean.

    The best part of the park, if you're too tired to see anything else, you should go here. It's beautiful, peaceful and very romantic.

    Ticket's booking is obligatory, we have done it here - As for Gallery, actually, I wasn't very impressed. There are several interesting pictures and sculptures, but it hasn't wow effect.

    We needed to walk across the whole park to find a toilet. No idea where they go with kids. The restroom is near the square with the obelisk, costs 1€, the staff has change in case.

    Use the metro entrance at via Veneto to get to the Spanish steps keeps you in the shade plus there are escalators and walkways to save walking uphill or downhill
