The Borghese gardens, created by the cardinal Scipione Borghese (nephew of Pope Paul V), included an English Garden and many neo-classical garden buildings by the early nineteenth century and was naturally a favourite destination for visiting artists and travellers. The formal gardens were simplified in the 1770s by a British landscape artist assisted by an Italian and involving the work of the architect Aspruicci. The gardens were particularly popular with nearby French Academy students based in the Villa Medici, subsequently bought with the estate in 1902.
