On Safari in Villa Borghese

27th March 2015

Students in Year 3 and 4 visited Rome's Villa Borghese on March 25th.  Two guides from Safari d’Arte took the students on a treasure hunt around the magnificent gardens and told numerous stories behind the amazing statues. 

These included Diana’s temple, the seahorse fountain, a sphinx, Medusa, a dragon, a cow, Umberto I on his horse and a donkey.

Students discovered that  Cardinal Scipione Borghese created the gardens in about 1605 and what was unique was that he wanted the gardens to be open to everyone.
