Villa Borghese

A visit here requires prior reservations. If you know when you want to be there, you can go on the Internet to make your reservation from home and bring your confirmation with you. We were going to take the bus there but woke up late and ended up taking a taxi there. We paid for a guided tour which was one of the best thing we did because there was so much to see. The best part was the main floor which had all the Caravaggio paintings and all the Bernini sculptures. The sculptures were so incredible like this one, the rape of Proserpine. The villa is small but packed with treasures. The upper floor held thee paintings and all the walls were just packed also. Its so amazing to see such wealth in a single place but that is the norm in Rome. Amazing.
