Follow an expert English-speaking guide through the marvelous Villa Borghese Gardens in Rome and discover this English-style park, its Elizabethan-style Silvano Toti Globe Theatre and the Biopark Zoo.
Every city has a main park…Madrid has El Retiro, New York has the Central Park and Rome has the Villa Borghese Park. Accompanied by a professional guide, you’ll take a walking tour of the grounds and enjoy the aroma of its flowers and marvel at its impressive fountains, sculptures and other monuments.
The capital’s green space, that once belonged to the Borghese family, is decorated with beautiful flower gardens and charming English-style pathways. The English-style is also visible in some of the Garden’s monuments, especially the Elizabethan-style Silvano Toti Globe Theatre, which strongly resembles Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London.
Wander through the Park until you get to famous water clock, whose hydraulic machinery is one of the most important in Italy. You’ll also stroll to the Park’s pond, where the Esculapio Temple stands practically floating on the water. This part of the Garden is considered one of the most romantic areas of Rome and it is where many couples declare their love for each other.
Continue the tour by exploring the multiple fountains, a haven of peace and tranquility in the heart of the city.
