Villa Borghese information
Locals, lovers, tourists, joggers – no one can resist the lure of Rome's most celebrated park. Originally the estate of Cardinal Scipione Borghese’s 17th-century residence, it covers about 80 hectares and boasts various museums and galleries, as well as the 18th-century Giardino del Lago and Piazza di Siena , an amphitheatre used for Rome’s top equestrian event in May.
Film buffs should head to the area around the Piazzale San Paolo del Brasile entrance, where the Casa del Cinema hosts regular film events, and the Cinema dei Piccoli is the world’s smallest cinema.
Bike hire is available at various points in the park, including Largo Pablo Picasso, for about €5/15 per hour/day.
