The art here is very high quality and there are a lot of well known names. Many really beautiful pictures. We were here an hour and a half and left without seeing everything because my husband was unwell. I regret having to leave. The man at the front desk was friendly and nice. We all enjoyed our visit. Beautiful sculpture,... More

Thouroughly dissapointed. The ticket seller on duty today was extremely rude to me just because I cannot speak Italian, I was with my family and heard how accommodating the locals are towards tourists, apparently this is not true at this local museum, I was enquiring whether there was a place to stow our luggage and he was really impatient although...

This was our favorite palace in Rome. We really enjoyed the audio tour. The palace and the artwork were beautiful!

We have been visitors to the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj for over 15 years and in that time the palace has gradually deterioriated , the paintings are darkening, the audio tape has not been updated for years, the dust gets thicker, the video of the corpse in the chapel does not work.. still.. even the loose tile in the first room...

This is a wonderful private museum. You can listen to one of the descendents of the family on the audio guide. One of many palazzi of pope families in Rome, the Doria Pamphili is home to a fantastic collection of painting and sculptures. Includes the portraits of Pope Innocent X by both Velazquez and Bernini. Also, lovely early Caravaggios. If... More

Having read up on the palazzo and its collection we decided to visit as it was centrally located, had good opening times, offered both amazing art and also lovely interiors and courtyard. The admission price was reasonable and the audio guide was included. The audio guide was excellent and the explanations made the palazzo and its collection come alive. The... More

Dear guest, We would like to thank you for your visit and we are glad that it was a satisfactory experience for you. The Doria Pamphilj family still lives in the palace and sometimes the private apartments are closed when in use by them. We are looking forward to welcoming you again. More

Really impressive old Roman Palace still run, and very well indeed by the Pamphilj family who are decended from Pope Innocent X. Excellent audio tour. It explains the main rooms and exhibits and you also have the option to hear more based on further numbered pictures. Chandeliers, grandeur, silk wallpaper form the backdrop for an Art Collection to rival any... More

It is located in a very nice location, so close to the wedding cake monument. The collection is awesome, with many paintings by Caravaggio and nice sculptures. The corridor are so brilliant and sophisticated. The only thing to note is it is not allowed to take pictures unless you pay for the VIP pass with extra 4 euros. Anyhow, I... More

This is not as well know as many often museums, but well worth the visit. A short walk from the pantheon, the included audio guide provided nice insight into the art collection with a bit of dry humor as well. I will say that by the end it was getting harder to tell one landscape from the next. I was... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
