Rented a four wheel bike thing to explore the gardens. Lots of fun Andes well as covering a lot on the park quickly. Lovely gardens with lots so see within its grounds. Lovely for an afternoon stroll. Rental is reasonable for an hour here.

At the entrances of this park are people who rent Segways. What a wonderful way to navigate this park. The rentals were very reasonably priced. My wife and I came back for a second day here. We at a stand with tables under an awning in back.

The bike rental over there are really sophisticated, offering normal bike and 4-wheel bike (with 2 seats and 4 seats). Besides bike, there are also golf car for rental.

We spent an hour there, the rental fee for a 2 seater 4-wheel bike is EUR12. Not cheap, but definitely worthy.

The bike is equipped with a small motor. So, it is not tiring at all.

There are some slope in the park. Riding a bike is truly fun. But some areas are quite crowded, so beware of other visitors, as there is no segregated path for biking.

We were there with our kids they enjoyed a lot ,it is of if the most beautiful garden I have ever seen ,unfortunately we couldn't visit the museum because we tried to book it one week before but it was sold .i recommend you to reserve online at least 2weeks before your visiting day.

As the Villa Borghese was closed on the day that we visited, we chose to walk through parts of the grounds.
The views from the Terrazza del Pincio overlooking the skyline of Rome is a wondrous sight. From here, you can hear the sound of many voices from groups of tourists, below.
We walked down the Pincio Promenade and took photos of the various statues and trees. Again, it was lovely and quite. A beautiful place to spend a few moments from the hustle and bustle down below.
If next time we visit Rome, the Villa is open, we will certainly take a visit inside.
