Villa Borghese

vb1The flourishing of Piazza del Popolo beneath the Pincian Hill attracted an investor born with silver spoon in the mouth, a Roman Catholic cardinal and nephew of Pope Paul V. In 1605, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, patron of Bernini, started building a villa comprising a number of buildings, fountains, gardens and museums. In the 19th C much of the old garden was remade with English style landscape. Four centuries later his desire paid off. Today, Villa Borghese is one of the main tourist attractions in Rome.

Villa Borghese is a perfect refuge for tourists and locals alike in its splendid gardens, fountains, villas and museums. It is a large public park with great museum, the Borghese Galleria. It hosts artworks by Bernini, Caravagio, Raphael, Titian, Canova etc. The museum lost almost 700 artworks after one of the villa’s heirs sold them on pressure to Napoleon, now the masterpieces are in exhibition in Louvre. In 1903 the commune of Rome bought the Villa and started opening to public thereof.

To the south the Villa is surrounded by Pincian Hill , Piazza del Popolo gate to its south western entrance, Borghese Museum on its eastern section and Bioparco Zoo to the north east. The villa hosted 1960 Summer Olympics horse jumping, equestrian event and individual jumping in Piazza Siena with in its premises.

The museum allows limited number of visitors, 360 every two hours. Thus booking either by telephone or online is always advisable at least one day prior to visit.

Eataly Opens In Rome

eataly romeRome June 2012: Eataly has opened its biggest store in the world. The current location is in an abandoned air terminal built for the 1990 Italy World Cup event. Four storey complex with 20 restaurants, bars, coffee and diverse specialist markets for cheese, ham, pasta, olives oils and wines.

Oscar Farinetti said: “Welcome to the biggest place in the world dedicated to Italian food. Our aim is to make it the third most visited place after the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums”.

Seen the aftermath of January 2007 Turin debut and later succeeding in opening 18 others (eight in Italy) including New York and Tokyo; Farinetti seem to give correct business forecast but don’t count your chickens before they are hatched.

Anyway, people have started chatting and twitting about this structure that gave a sense of joy for the employment (400 workers) it created in a time of economic crack down and restoring the abandoned store to life.

Eataly is not just a food mega store with the best Italian quality but kind of school that teaches children responsible food consumption and be food friendly.

Those visiting Rome for few days can take the opportunity to enjoy foodies in this station in just few  underground or train stops from the main tourist attractions of Rome.

Metro B: from Termini direction Laurentina and get off Piramide (Ostiense Station).

Train: from Tiburtina Station direction Fiumicino Airport and get off Piramide (Ostiense Station) .
