All Rome Luxury Suites properties are a short walk from Villa Borghese, Rome’s magnificent central park. The beautifully landscaped, bucolic parklands once belonged to the powerful Borghese family. Rome City Council bought the gardens in 1903 and opened them to the public. Full of huge trees dappling the sunlight, there are still many sculptures from the Borghese era lining the walkways, and you can wander, picnic, rent bikes and even glide around on a Segway.
The gardens’ magnificent centerpiece is the Galleria Borghese, built by the immensely powerful Cardinal Borghese to house his spectacular art collection. You need a reservation to visit: ask our concierge and they’ll make one for you. Not only is it a glorious baroque building, but you’ll find masterpieces by Bernini, Titian and Caravaggio, and spectacular Roman mosaic floors.
Other splendours in the park include the Etruscan museum, with a remarkable collection of pre-Roman artefacts, and the modern art masterpieces of the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna.
