Parks and Playgrounds

Family Guide
Children playing in Villa Borghese
Rather than small leafy squares in the centre, Rome has a wealth of spacious parks on its fringes, most of which are descendents of the ribbon of private gardens and estates that circumscribed the city in ancient times. Today these parks offer much-needed respite for families after long days of sightseeing. Kids can enjoy a variety of activities ranging from boating and playing games to watching puppet shows and even skating, while parents watch from under shady trees. As a bonus, many also contain, or are next to some of Rome’s top sights.
