The gardens at Villa Borghese are a must-see stop during your time in Rome. Who has not gotten lost in the immensity of these lush gardens at least once? It is required sightseeing that you won't regret. The gardens are the ideal place for a stroll in the centre of Rome on sun-kissed days. After all, this is one of the biggest public parks in the city. You can take advantage of its lakes, lawns and wooded areas. There are also art museums and academies. For breathtaking views, we recommend you visit the gardens at the end of the day as the sun is setting. From Piazza del Popolo, as you look down toward the terrace of the piazzale, the view opens up on the gardens, as well as major monuments like the Vatican and its palaces, the dome of St. Peter's Basilica and even the Pantheon. Another special feature of this venue is the Commedia Dell'arte. A water-clock was built in the park in 1867. Just next door, the 'San Carlino' Teatro dei Burrattini puts on an array of puppet shows staged by the Commedia dell'arte.
