What to expect

Wander the 17th-century residence, adorned with some of Italy’s best-known artwork, and explore the villa’s majestic gardens.

Head into the Borghese Gallery to learn about the artists who created the artworks that adorn the Villa's stunning 22 rooms: sculptures by Bernini and paintings by Caravaggio, Titian and Raphael. Be sure to look up from time to time – the building and its frescos and architecture are a piece of art in their own right. Afterwards, take a stroll through the third largest park in Rome, the Villa Borghese Gardens; lose yourself in the greenery and forget that you’re in the bustling Italian capital. Redesigned in the 1800s, the garden houses several oddities, like a 19th century hydrochronometer or the 18th century Temple of Aesculapius. Explore the sculptures, groves, flowerbeds, and fountains that make this park a favorite attraction among locals and travelers alike.
