One of the most famous museums of Rome

One of the most famous museums of Rome, Galleria Borghese, which is located in the Villa Borghese, one of the biggest parks in Rome. In general, in the Villa Borghese is all sorts of museums and galleries, a zoo, equestrian, etc. But the undisputed "must" program - only the Galleria Borghese, where the assembled mass of any masterpiece works.

Near Galleria Borghese heap all sorts of beautifully landscaped areas. Given the high demand for entrance into the tickets have to buy much-much in advance (on the same day to get complicated). Running is strictly on time, so all the time waiting for your call, have time to actively climb round all sorts of beautiful places around.

Inside the Borghese Gallery is forbidden to photograph, and this was quite strictly followed. At the entrance to give up all the bags and other suspicious items. Someone with me trying to take pictures on the phone, for which he received a lot of fights, almost to the police.

The most famous sculptures of the Borghese Gallery are "Rape of Proserpine by Pluto" by Bernini. Right - the sculpture Paolini Borghese, Napoleon's sister, one of the Borghese family members, koi owned villa. Paolina Borghese by Canova (author), portrayed in the form of Venus during the holidays. With all my indifference to the sculpture, these truly impressed.

The park of Villa Borghese just some sort of epic proportions, so I'm on it could easily go all day long (it used the time!). If from the Borghese Gallery honestly walked through the entire territory of the Villa Borghese, then eventually come to the viewing platform on the hill of Pinch, which is directly above the Piazza del Popolo. In good weather there is really just want to walk.
