The Garden Guide

Villa Borghese

The villa was built by a nephew of Scipio Borghese (Pope Paul V ) with a celebrated baroque garden. In the nineteenth century it became an 'English garden' and in 1901 a state-owned public park. One can glimpse the former magnificance and restoration works are being undertaken. It is a cool place on a hot day.
