Borghese Villa

A big park in the city of Rome

Villa Borghese, Roma, RM

The name of the villa derives from the first residence of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, the "Casino Noble", built at the beginning of the seventeenth century on a project by Flaminio Ponzio and Giovanni Vasanzio and transformed into a museum in the twentieth century, one of the most prestigious collections of art from the 16th to the 18th century, with masterpieces by artists such as Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Bernini and Canova.

The large park contains several buildings and has 9 entrances: one of the busiest is Porta Pinciana, the one from the Trinità dei Monti stairway, the one from the Pincio ramp to Piazza del Popolo and the monumental entrance to Piazzale Flaminio. The "garden of the Pincio" in the southern part of the park, offers a well-known panorama of Rome. The Park of Villa Borghese occupies a large area in the heart of the city, between the stretch of the Aurelian Walls that connects Porta Pinciana to Piazzale Flaminio, and the new Salario and Pinciano neighborhoods built in the early twentieth century.
