This is a superb, intimate art gallery and glimpse inside a beautiful palazzo, right in the middle of Rome. We had visited before pre children, and weren't sure whether our children (now 12 and 9) would enjoy the visit, but both declare it was a highlight of our recent holiday. The place itself is magical, but it is the quirky,... More

This is well worth a visit, especially if you are interested in how the other half lived at one time. Beautifully restored and maintained residence of the Pamphillj family, there are beautiful decorative pieces and a wonderful collection of paintings by such artists as Caravaggio, Bernini, Bellini and Raphael among others. Located right on the Corso, in the heart of... More

Incredible to learn that this collection is in private hands - this made my visit all the more delightful as I could marvel at Caravaggio, Bernini, the Flemish and French paintings and so many other treasures lined from floor to ceiling, away from all the tourists concentrated in the mainstream museums. The audio guide was highly entertaining - a first... More

All of the art itself is displayed in an alluringly 'hotchpotch' way. However, this allows you to feel you are discovering the gems forward yourself. There are quite a few important pieces that are worth the admission costs alone. The audio guide is included in the €11.00 admission price. The familial slant taken by the audio guide made the history... More

Boys this location location is authentic, perhaps a little bit too much to be considered a museum. Lightning is inadequate, environments are dusty, smell dirty and are quite worn out, visitors are given an audio aid that is rather amusing but far from descriptive: it seems to me most of the pieces exposed lack references, one is left with a...

The palace is amazing- particularly the mini "Versaillies Hall of Mirrors" I appreciated the audio guide descriptions of the family/palace history and the non-technical but insightful information about the paintings. Yes it can be difficult to see all the paintings on view but that is the price to pay for the historical reasons behind displaying them in this way.

What a find - so easy to walk past without noticing. The art collection must rate as one of the finest in private hands Caravagio, Velasquez, Bernini etc. etc. The audio tour is excellent too - the commentary by one of the family really brings the Palazzo to life

This was a truly impressive collection considering it was private. Some amazing pieces of work here. It was easy to spend the afternoon just in awe of all the great art. And just when you think its done, there is another hallway with more beautiful work. Because its not as well known, and is very deceiving in its location and... More

Funny. Rick Steves has this on his list of things to see in Rome. Really? I wouldn't have been upset if I never saw this property. This palace is partially available for public visitation and the rest is the private residence of the owners. They obviously need the revenue from tourism to continue living there. There is an audio guide... More

There are only two privately owned art collections in Rome that are open to the public, the other is the Colonna gallery which boasts say one painting that is really of a high level. There one goes for the building itself , its frescoes, furnishings and halls. That gallery is very hard to visit as it is open only on... More
