Wandering Wednesday – Rome – The Villa Borghese

The Villa Borghese is one of the main parks of Rome. People come here to bike, picnic, rent boats in the pond, relax, promenade, and do the Roman jog. It’s the perfect place to stroll with it’s wide shady lanes and a new fountain or sculpture around every corner. There are also several museums and galleries on the grounds, the most popular being the main villa which is filled with beautiful marble sculptures and paintings by the classical masters. It is a must see. 

There’s a replica of Shakespeare's globe theater they hold performances in and a classic roman amphitheater. For the kids there is also a whole childrens museum, zoo, and play area with kiddie rides,a playground, and pony rides. It is truly a lovely spot of culture just northeast of the Spanish steps.
