Well worth a visit if nearby, this Palace and Art gallery has been in the same private family for centuries. Huge number of paintings, mostly 16 & 17th century, plus some sculptures. A free audio guide is provided in which the current owner describes, in perfect English, the history of the family, papal connections, the palace and many of the... More

This is the palace of an important family in early modern Italy. One can see some of the important rooms of the palace, with furnishings from the Baroque onward. But it is rather run down. In those rooms hang paintings (the gallery), but I found them much less impressive that I had expected - few by important artists. The jewel... More

The home is exquisite. It is a lovely home. I do enjoy art but I am more into history and architecture, as well classic structures. The Palazzo is beauty of a by gone era. It is also very interesting to have a glimpse of such an elite and privileged life style. I do believe the Palazzo is still a private... More

One of the private art galleries in the middle of historic part of Rome. For your tickets you get charming audioguide for free and I think this is one of the palaces truly worth visited. They have a charming tea room instead of just your usual visitor snack shop.

This was our 6th trip to Rome and second visit to this facinating palace. Here one gets to visit a noble family's lavish palace, along with its art, narrated (free audio guide) by the family prince who lives there. And it is right downtown, two blocks north of the Piazza Venezia. The Pamphiljs produced one Pope--Innocent X. Don't miss Velazquez's... More

Very authentic little area. Takes you back once you step into the courtyard with the lovely green fruit trees around the centre.

The palace wasn't on my list, but I'm really happy that I could see that amazing place. It was like a real time-machine! Thanks to the audioguides you can feel the spirit of past times and picture every single moment in your head. The collection of paintings is really impressive, as is the whole building. After - coffee in a... More

Pretty good attraction with some nice rooms, furnishings and artwork. Best take the audio guide to fully appreciate the history and different bits in the many rooms. Annoying commentator. Un-heated and very cold inside when we were there in December. Not helping with the structural damage in the ceilings I suspect, or indeed preserving the treasures.

We truly enjoyed our visit to the palazzo. We used the complimentary audio guide. The commentary was by one of the current owners of the palazzo, so it included some family insights from the past. The home is well preserved and very interesting. Another bonus, there were many chairs along the way to sit and listen to the commentary.

The Galleria Doria Pamphili is a must see especially to Baroque art enthusiasts. In addition the rooms on display together with their furniture are exquisite and equally impressive, a great opportunity for the lovers of the renaissance and baroque art to admire an impeccable private large art collection and the baroque decoration of the interior space.
