  Villa Borghese Park
by tini58de

This is the largest and most beautiful public park in Rome. It has a perimeter of 6 km.
It was originally created in the seventeenth century for Cardinal Scipione Borghese. In 1901 it became the property of the King Umberto I and later was donated to the city. Its paths and fields wind among lakes, fountains and forested sections. We enjoyed the green and the shade and really enjoyed the fantastic view over the city!
