Anyone have a link or directions to Villa Borghese parking in Rome?

I read where it is large and relatively easy to drive to. Does anyone have any directions on how to get there?

Here is a link to the GALLERIA Borghese:

http://www.galleriaborghese.it/borghese/en/einfo.htm

It suggests public transportation or a taxi, but it also has a map situating it within the Villa Borghese PARK.

If you did mean the Villa Borghese PARK, yes, it is large and easy to get to (at least in a taxi...), but I don't recall seeing many parking spaces...

Driving within Rome is much more of a hassle than it's worth (I don't drive myself, but I have Roman friends who do - and who walk whenever they possibly can). I would suggest that you leave the car at the hotel, walk wherever possible, and grab a cab for anything further out of the way.

I did a search on parking in Rome and someone said there was a huge parking lot at Villa Borghese that was relatively easy to get to from the north. Maybe I misunderstood.

No, you were right and I was wrong.

I still haven't found directions, but here's a map that shows several "parcheggio"s in Villa Borghese. I also gather that one of them is called "Parcheggio Villa Borghese" but I haven't been able to find out which one of the many it is.
