Rome Italy...part 3

The Villa Borghese Gardens are situated high up above the squares of Rome.
The gardens cover about 80 hectares and are situated above Piazza Del Popolo.

The gardens were developed in 1606 by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, who wanted to turn his former vineyard into the most extensive gardens built in Rome.

You can best see the gardens by renting a scooter, bike or by riding the tram.

We opted to ride the tram which was about 4 Euros and took about 30 minutes.

Next stop is Vatican City.

  1. Ooh, how lovely! We didn't have time to do anything more than the Colosseum and the outdoor area next to it (have forgotten the name), the Trevi Fountain (covered in scaffolding) and the famous steps.

  2. wow! How amazing...and the skies! Thank you for sharing.

  3. I thought the gardens were nice, but was generally underwhelmed. But I love Rome so I loved them anyway. Looking forward to your Vatican post.
