One of the tours not to be missed is Villa Borghese...
The Villa was built to be a museum, even though it was surrounded by a thriving farm, with vegetable gardens, vineyards, a large aviary and an intense social life made of hunting and cultural meetings.
Unique opportunity to visit the great collection started at the beginning of the seventeenth century by Cardinal Scipione, that brings together masterpieces by Tiziano, Bernini, Correggio, Caravaggio and Canova!

Moreover, to get up there, as in these days the weather in Rome is beautiful, you will enjoy the walk in the Park of Villa Borghese starting from Piazza del Popolo!
A curiosity: the word Popolo(People) is not really for the People but is a transformation of the latin word for Poplar, so this is actually the Square of the Poplar!
But REMEMBER … to visit the Villa Borghese, is necessary to book the ticket!

To find a moment to relax and let the kids have fun without worries, it’s not impossible in Roma!
Younger children are welcome at the exceptional environment for children created in the Casina di Raffaello, the recreation center surrounded by the greenery of the Park of Villa Borghese!
The entrance to the Casina di Raffaello is free and allows parents to rest for a moment, while children can read many books for children available in the area dedicated to reading, or playing in the playground located in front of the Casina Raffaello, consisting on a raised wooden house, a moving equipped path, a giant accordion that you can play with feet and much more…
You can also enroll children from three to seven years, to a short “course of painting”, while parents can take a coffee at the Cinema Bar, right in front of Casina Raffaello!
