Often compared to New York City’s Central Park, this lush expanse stretches on for more than 225 acres, from Piazza del Poppolo to the top of Via Veneto. Undoubtedly the best place in the city for a picnic or bike ride, we love to spend an afternoon walking along Via Condotti (a shopping stretch comparable to the Upper East Side) through the gardens and ending at the Galleria Borghese to pore over the Baroque art (just be sure to grab tickets ahead of time online). If you have littles in tow, they’ll love the Bioparco, one of the oldest zoological gardens in Europe where you’ll find a wild mix of exotic animals from lions and lynxes to leopards and elephants.
