  • In the heart of Rome we find one of the most romantic places in the Eternal City: the Garden of Lake Villa Borghese. Here you can row the waters of a small lake on a small islet to the Temple of Esculapio. It is an Ionic-style artifact made at the end of the 18th century to house the statue of Esculapio, god of medicine, which had been unearthed among the ruins of the Mausoleum of Augustus. We are in the heart of Rome, in a corner of Villa Borghese wanted by the Borghese family at the end of the seventeenth century, surrounded by greenery and in which not only tourists but the Romans with their families, as well as young lovers can enjoy the romantic climate and nature I'm not a We remember the sonnet of belli who described this place: "here if he dances to the custom der country, there er balloon, the orchestra, the cuckoo ... Viva er core der préncipe Borghese. From the Garden of the Lake you can then continue to reach the nearby terrace of Pincio where you can enjoy a magnificent view of Rome that crowns our walk with dignity

  • Gorgeous place. We did rowing boats (3€ per person for 20mins) on the lake and had a blast. Loads of turtles swimming about and posing for photos. Well worth a visit.
  • A really nice place to relax and have a stroll. It's just wonderful. There is also a small lake and you can rent a boat.
  • Nice place to walk. Have a seat and look around the temple and enjoy the view of blue sky and some birds swimming on the water.
  • Beautiful place to relax and get some fresh air. You can take a boat ride in the lake. There are ducks and swans geese too.
  • It is gorgeous and relaxing. I loved taking photos here and just walking around this place. There are often really good live musicians/buskers here.
