Description

One of Rome's largest public parks, Villa Borghese offers a beautiful landscape garden with numerous buildings and attractions for visitors. Spanning across an area of nearly 150 acres, the history of the massive park dates back to 1605 when the former vineyard was converted into the magnificent garden by Cardinal Scipione Borghese - an Italian Cardinal, art collector and patron of the arts. The park was opened to the public in 1903 and now features several walkways, fountains and many museums including Museo e Galleria Borghese - the most famous museum housed within the Villa Borghese building, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna - which houses collections of Italian paintings, and the Museo Nazionale Etrusco - located within Villa Giulia offering ancient pre-Roman objects and artefacts retrieved from excavations. Other prominent sights include the amphitheatre, the eighteenth century arc and the botanical garden.
