If you ever need some break of the hectic live, just visit the Villa Borghese Garden in the Heart of Rome and you will feel an immediate relief. With those sky-high pine trees, sculptures and attractions in between you can balance your body and brain a little bit back. I can either recommend a walk through the park or a visit to one of the museums inside the Villa Borghese.

For those of you who wonder about the name Villa for a garden: Villa is a designation in Italian for Houses, Villas AND the area around. So the name itself means the Villa Borghese, the house, but in general, it’s the name for the whole 80 hectares (0.8 km²) wide areal. Such a huge garden in such a huge but old city, that’s definitely something rare. But what is rare in Rome? There are even two bigger gardens, that I haven’t had the chance to visit yet, Villa Doria Pamphili and Villa Ada.

Inside the areal there you can find some special attractions like the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna that displays a collection of 19th- and 20th-century paintings by Italian artists, a replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre that was built in 2003 or the zoological garden Bioparco di Roma. This huge attraction has more than 1,100 animals of 222 species.
For sure you can find restaurants/cafés inside the Garden as well as bike rentals or mobile shops selling Gelato and cold drinks. The Villa Borghese Garden isn’t far away from main attractions like the Spanish Steps and can be reached from there within minutes by foot. The closest Metro Station from the south would be ‘Spagna’. Check out my Map for the location.

“How very happy I am here in Rome when I think of the bad days
Far back there in the north, wrapped in a grayish light.
Over my head there the heavens weighed down so dismal and gloomy;
Colorless, formless, that world round this exhausted man lay.
Seeking myself in myself, an unsatisfied spirit, I brooded,
Spying out pathways dark, lost in dreary reflection.
Here in an ather more clear now a luster encircles my forehead.
Phoebus the god evokes forms, clear are his colors by day.
Bright with the stars comes the evening, ringing with songs that are tender,
And the glow of the moon, brighter than northern sun…”
