In the heart of Rome is one of the most famous gardens in Italy, and probably in the whole world. If you've already been there, we're sure you probably can't wait to walk around the big park of Villa Borghese again! However, if this is your first time in Rome, we can bet that Villa Borghese will occupy an important place on the list of places to see before you leave.
With nearly 80 hectares, Villa Borghese is one of the main public parks of the city of Rome, which extends (largely) to the district of Pinciano, north of the historic centre of the city. This may seem like an advantage in order to get to the historical centre quickly, but…have you thought about how you are going to park in the centre of Rome?
Think about it: a famous park in the centre of Rome that everyone wants to visit…This is, without a doubt, a magnet for traffic and a direct cause for not finding a parking space for your car. But, fortunately, there is a way to get to Rome with an advantage over the rest of the visitors. Making your online reservation with Parclick you will find car parks near Villa Borghese, so close that you only have to take a few steps to get to the entrance. But of course, once you're sure you're going to reserve your parking space, it's time to decide which car park you're going to leave your car in. If you want some advice, the best options are: the SABA Villa Borghese car park, the MUOVIAMO Pinciano car park, the MUOVIAMO Sardegna, the MUOVIAMO Veneto and the MUOVIAMO Abruzzi car parks, it's time to decide!
With your reservation you will be able to park without wasting any time, but the only thing you should bear in mind is which way to get to Villa Borghese. A few metres from the car park is the border of the ZTL (Rome's Limited Traffic Zone), so in order not to get a ticket as a souvenir of your trip, we recommend you go to the Villa Borghese park on Via Pinciana, Corso d'Italia or Via del Muro Torto.

But we cannot forget the Museo Carlo Bilotti (previously the Museo de l’Aranciera), the Temple of Aesculapius and the Globe Theater Roma, which has a great programme of plays by Shakespeare.
