(ANSA) - Rome, August 21 - Rome's Villa Borghese is one of the 10 most fascinating parks in the world, according to a survey carried out by the German magazine "Focus". Others include London's renowned Hyde Park, Central Park in New York, the Prate in Vienna, the Guell of Barcellona and the Luxemberg Gardens of Paris. Villa Borghese hosts "five square kilometers of spectacularly attractive grounds, including fantastic sculptures, waterfalls and fountains," said Focus journalist Isabelle Bloedorn in the article. "And for those who have not had enough of the infinite cultural richness that Rome offers, it's really worth visiting the Villa Borghese museum and gallery to admire unique artistic treasures including those of great masters like Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello and Rubens." "It is a shame that Napoleon in 1807 took many other masterpieces that were originally in the gallery away with him to the Louvre," she added. Monaco's English Garden, the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and Vancouver's Stanley Park are other parks that made the global hit list.
