This is my second trip to this museum and I still really like it and wouldn't miss it as part of my cultural experience in Rome. The artwork and space is beautiful, historically significant, Central, with Little to no lines or crowds cramping your space or viewing enjoyment. They give you free audio guides that are short and insightful and... More

It was just to about to start to rain when we found this palace. And it was a great choice to visit this amazing apartment of one of the most important families of Italy. All what see is original. An outstanding collection of paintings and statues. It looks like the family just moved out. The provided audio guides are very... More

the concentration of magnificent works of art is just unbelievable. The grandeur and allure of the place are unique. Just can't miss it. It is like tasting what should be to be in Roma at baroque times. Wonderful place and atmosphere!

A superbly preserved privately owned palazzo in the heart of a Rome. The collection of fine art is unique and the audio tapes with Jonathan's (the young prince) explanations are very interesting and much more fun than one hears at other historical sites. Also heads up to the openly gay prince and his partner who defy Italian society and his... More

A brilliant glimpse into the past and a great art collection - this is privately owned and had a good audio guide that gives lots of background to the palace, the family and the huge collection.

After living in Rome for the past two months (and really getting out and about), this is by far the best place I've visited. Amazing private art collection; great audioguide; and not crowded! I would highly recommend for adults (not suitable for kids). A great history lesson in a beautiful setting!

We spent a couple hours enjoying the artwork and history of this magnificent Palazzo. We hired audioguides, which were a great accompaniment, with excellent commentary by Jonathon Pamphilj. It includes personal asides such as himself and his little sister being reprimanded when as children they skated across the polished & waxed floors. Many of the rooms and corridors are wonderful...

Make sure you get the audio tour guide. It is full of fascinating little details and stories which bring the building, the collection and the history of Rome to life. It is read by one of the family. There are lots of chairs placed thoughtfully throughout the rooms so you can take your time and sit down. You can wander... More
