Villa Borghese Gardens

save place
Get away from the crowds
Rome is continuing to be overrun with crowds, but few people know about the Villa Borghese Gardens, a large park just at the top of the Via Veneto. When you want to get away, go there.
A little known secret: you can save a lot of uphill walking by ducking behind the Spanish Steps. Enter the Metro station, but don't catch a train, and take the escalators to the top.
