The park 'Villa Borghese' in Rome

Around the Gallerie Borghese on Pincio hill, you will find the former estate that had been owned by the wealthy Borghese family since 1580. Cardinal Scipione Borghese commissioned the vineyard to be converted into a park. Building of the Villa Borghese Pinciana was completed in 1633. It also included the construction of other buildings, including an aviary and orangery. During the 19th century the park received a major overhaul and converted to the English style with various ponds and fountains. Eventually, the park was bought by the municipality of Rome in 1903 and was made a public park. It is now the largest park in Rome and a perfect place to get away from the bustle of the city.
