One of my favourite places in Rome is Villa Borghese. I always try to find time to wander and discover new things in this enormous park. On my last trip to Rome I found a gorgeous tree lined avenue with busts of famous Italians.
Somebody loved this one.
It became too dark to continue so I went to the edge of the park for a spectacular view over Rome.
The Borghese garden is a great place to escape the bustle of the city. As well as the beautiful gardens and green spaces, there are restaurants and cafes and museums. The gorgeous Galleria Borghese is one of my favourite galleries in Rome. It is full of exquisite sculpture and has an excellent collection of the works of Bernini.
