North of the historic center of Rome elegant and powerful palazzi line the street that winds uphill, connecting Piazza Barberini and Villa Borghese.
This street, Via Veneto, is the heart of la Dolce Vita. Here some of Rome’s biggest and most loved historic hotels welcome guests from all over the world. Chic sidewalk cafès sit under stone pines or elegant shades to keep guests cool as they sip cold cappuccinos or spritz at the golden hour. Just at the end of the hill is one of the entrances to Rome’s Villa Borghese, its third largest public park, filled with paved walk ways that stitch across the entire park – perfect for walking or biking. It’s also home to the famed Galleria Borghese, which holds a large part of the noble family’s private collection, including paintings by Caravaggio and scultures by Gianlorenzo Bernini.

What’s near AP21 Villa Borghese vacation apartment?
Aside from Villa Borghese, Via Veneto, and Piazza Barberini that are just minutes by foot from the apartment, also within a few minutes walk is the Spanish Steps, Galleria Borghese, and Villa Medici.
The Spanish Steps are a must for every visitor to the Eternal City. Recently renovated by the Roman jewelry and fashion brand Bulgari, the steps are in pristine condition despite the heavy foot traffic they attract. The historic steps have connected Piazza di Spagna with the church Trinità dei Monti for centuries, and today proves to be one of the shopping hubs of the city. Go window shopping down Via Vittoria, Via Babuino, or Via Condotti, locally known as the ‘Fifth Avenue of Rome’. Then head to some of our favorite places to eat in the Spanish Steps neighborhood.
For a spectacular afternoon head to Villa Medici for a tour of the stunning country palace that now houses the French Academy. Learn the interesting history of the building, the family, and the gardens. Tip: take an afternoon tour so that you’re at the garden terrace for sunset for beautiful, golden views of the Eternal City. Then stop for an aperitivo in the Cafe Colbert, located inside Villa Medici.
