Wide public park where you can enjoy walking and running far away from the city mood. There are some playground as well and a romantic lake. It was the country residence of a ancient roman nobility family, so you can have an idea about their life style.

“"Villa Borghese" is a large city park in the city of Rome which includes various types of green accommodation, from the Italian garden to large English-style areas, buildings, small buildings, fountains and ponds. It is the fourth largest public park in Rome (about 80 hectares) and extends largely over the Pinciano district and a small part over the Campo Marzio district, divided by the Aurelian walls. Villa Borghese contains several buildings and has 9 entrances: the most popular are those of Porta Pinciana, the one from the steps of Trinità dei Monti, the one from the ramps of the Pincio to Piazza del Popolo and the monumental entrance of Piazzale Flaminio. The "Giardino del Pincio", in the southern part of the park, offers a well-known panorama over Rome. The building of the villa, now home to the Borghese Gallery, was built by the architect Flaminio Ponzio, who developed the sketches of Scipione Borghese. When Pontius died, the works were completed by the Flemish Giovanni Vasanzio. The building was intended by Camillo Borghese to contain Bernini's sculptures, including "David" and "Apollo and Daphne", and by Antonio Canova ("Paolina Borghese") as well as paintings by Titian, Raphael and Caravaggio. The villa also houses the Rome Zoo recently transformed into a Biopark and the Civic Museum of Zoology, while the "Casina delle Rose" is now the seat of the Casa del Cinema. Near the latter is the Cinema dei Piccoli, the smallest cinema in the world.”

Point of Interest
“The square occupies the area of the ancient stadium of Domitian (Circo Agonal), with a capacity of 30,000 spectators, where the Romans carried out their sporting and competitive activities. The fountains of Piazza Navona Undoubtedly, the most fascinating elements of Piazza Navona are the three fountains built during the mandate of Gregorio XIII Boncompagni: fountain of the Four Rivers In the center of Piazza Navona is the Fountain of the Four Rivers, designed by Bernini in 1651. The four statues of the fountain represent the most important rivers of the time: the Nile, the Danube, the Ganges and the Río de la Plata. In the center of the square there is a 16 meter high obelisk, which was previously located in the Circus of Maxentius on the Via Appia. Fontana del Moro Created by Giacomo della Porta and perfected by Bernini, who later added dolphins, the Fontana del Moro was initially known as the Snail Fountain. It is located in the southern part of the square. Fountain of Neptune Like the Fontana del Moro, that of Neptune was also designed by Giacomo della Porta. It was abandoned from its creation until 1873, when the work was finalized by Zappalà and Della Bitta. Curiosity Until the mid-nineteenth century, in summer the water outlets of the three fountains were closed and the central part of the square flooded, becoming "The Lake of Piazza Navona". A pleasant area The square is surrounded by bars and restaurants and is surrounded by a pleasant atmosphere during the day. It is a very lively area where, at any time of day, you can attend performances by street artists such as magicians or dancers. Among the buildings that delimit the square are the famous Palazzo Doria-Pamphili and the splendid Church of Santa Agnese.”

“The Orange Trees Garden (Italian: Giardino degli aranci) is the name used in Rome to describe the Parco Savello. It is about 7,800 square meters and is located on the Aventine Hill. The park offers an excellent view of the city. The garden, as it is today, was designed in 1932 by Raffaele De Vico. It was constructed to offer public access to the view from the side of the hill, creating a new ‘’belvedere’’, to be added to the existing viewpoints in Rome from the Pincian Hill and the Janiculum. The garden, whose name comes from the many bitter orange trees growing there, extends over the area of an ancient fortress built near the basilica of Santa Sabina by the Savelli family between 1285 and 1287, which, in turn, was built over an old castle constructed by the Crescentii in the tenth century. A few steps from the Orange Garden, you will find a great surprise. From the keyhole of a historic building, you will be able to see the dome of St. Peter. The gate from which you can enjoy this view is inserted in the structure of the villa of the Priorato di Malta which overlooks the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta. The villa stands on the area that was a Benedictine monastery founded in 939 which passed to the Templars in the twelfth century but was stolen by Clement V and finally seized it in 1400 by Pope Paul II who granted it to the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.”
