The park of Villa Borghese occupies a vast area in the heart of the city.
From Piazza Barberini to Porta Pinciana, the elegant Via Vittorio Veneto winds its way, framed by majestic trees, luxury hotels and famous cafes. It was an icon of the 1960s "Dolce Vita", celebrated by Federico Fellini's masterpiece. Here, celebrities meet - movie stars, playboys and intellectuals - captured by the paparazzi in search of the cover scoop. Walking along this street, you can meet works of art from different periods, such as the original Fountain of the Bees by Bernini, and the church of Santa Maria della Concezione, with masterpieces by Lanfranco, Guido Reni, Pietro da Cortona, Domenichino and the suggestive Capuchin Crypt.
From the monumental Porta Pinciana, one of the ancient entrances to the city, you enter the district of the same name. Here is Villa Borghese, a jewel with buildings, sculptures, monuments, ponds, and fountains. It is the park of museums and culture par excellence: the sumptuous Borghese Gallery, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, the ETRU - National Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia, the Carlo Bilotti Museum, the Pietro Canonica Museum, the Civic Museum of Zoology, the Bioparco, Casa del Cinema and Gigi Proietti Globe Theatre Silvano Toti, the Elizabethan-inspired theatre. Here, in the enchanting Piazza di Siena, the CSIO, one of the best horse racing competitions in the world, is held every year.
Among refined palaces and monumental villas is Flaminio, historically referred to as the capital’s first district. The area hosts two of the most relevant points of interest of contemporary Rome: the Auditorium Parco della Musica, designed by the star architect Renzo Piano, and the MAXXI, the National Museum of XXI Century Arts, by Anglo-Iraqi Zaha Hadid. Nearby, the imposing architecture of the Stadio Olimpico, Stadio Flaminio and the Foro Italico Complex stand out, a must for lovers of major sporting events.
A short distance away is the Parioli district. After the Second World War, it became an exclusive residential area for the elite - politicians, tycoons and artists -who built here their luxury homes. Known for its trendy cocktail bars and restaurants, it is home to the Mosque of Rome, one of the largest on the continent. Hera are also some noble villas and enchanting parks, such as the 15th-century Villa Balestra, Villa Glori, designed by Raffaele De Vico, and part of the neighbouring Villa Ada, a magnificent example of an English garden.
