The Villa Borghese Gardens are situated moments from Rome’s most unmissable sights, yet manage to offer a haven of serenity, with more than 148 acres of grounds to be enjoyed. Rome is an exciting city, so it’s nice to spend a while relaxing, and these beautiful gardens are the ideal place to do it. Dotted amid the lush grounds are some incredible sights, including an exact replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and an ingenious water-powered clock.
There are also several beautiful villas nestled within the grounds, especially the Galleria Borghese Museum art gallery – one of Rome’s most popular attractions. Despite the impressive scale of the Borghese Gardens, visitors can still reach top attractions in moments, including the Spanish Steps in just a five-minute walk.
