Once a playground of the Popes, this vast park contains walking trails, a zoo, a carousel, a small lake with boat rentals, plus cafes, pony rides and a tiny cinema. It's also home to two of Rome's greatest art museums, the Galleria Borghese and the National Etruscan Museum at Villa Giulia. The former is a stellar collection of mostly Renaissance and Baroque art, while the latter contains thousands of artifacts from the pre-Roman Etruscan culture. You need a reservation to visit Galleria Borghese.
