In 2016 I had a morning to walk wherever I wanted and I wanted to walk to the Villa Borghese. It was Sunday so it was closed. I enjoyed the park and just simply walking as I pleased. In 2017 the plan was to go to the Villa and go inside. We did. It truly is glorious. It full of sculpture, mosaics, and paintings. The Villa is a little more to human scale than some edifices, but being so jammed with famous art it attracts a lot of tourists. There is a limit on the numbers allowed inside which helps a great deal. It is hard to believe that anyone could live in such a place no matter how beautiful. Just think of swords tossed in the corners against the Bernini and undergarments flung up on to the corners of the Caravaggio!
