During my visit to Rome, I decided to explore the exuberating city. Walking in an uncertain direction, I reached what looked like a normal park but instead found a beautiful hidden gem called Villa Borghese. It was situated right in the middle of the city.
Strolling around this large landscaped park that used to be a private property in ancient times, I witnessed amazing scenery. Villas turned into museums, vineyards transformed into enormous gardens… There is something for everyone in Villa Borghese: Families and friends can sit and relax in the garden or have some fun by renting out bicycles and wooden boats to discover the lac. Art lovers and history fanatics can enjoy paintings and sculptures in its galleries and museums.
Villa Borghese became one of my favorite destinations… my sweet escape… If I could, I would find my way back into this hidden gem for further exploration.
