ROME — Northern Rome

The northern part of the city doesn’t contain many tourist attractions except for the Villa Borghese which has a quiet, restful feel after the hectic pace of other parts of Rome. There are also some interesting museums to be found here such as Museo Galleria Borghese.

It covers a huge area and includes buildings, sculptures, monuments and fountains by famous artists from the Baroque, Neo-classical and Eclectic periods arranged in a park featuring lakes, gardens, large open spaces and trees hundreds of years old, all laid out in accordance with the fashions then current in Europe.
