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

The Palazzo Doria Pamphilj offers 'Sights and Sounds of Caravaggio' tour every Saturday. The guide and trio of musicians brought the splendour of medieval Rome (Italy) to life with their combination of expert commentary, wonderful art and phenomenal performances of baroque music. Although centuries old the music was very accessible and brought the galleries to life.Our tour finished in the... More

I wasn't aware that you have to pay 11 euros to visit the temple on the inside. Maybe it's nice in there but I honestly didn't want to take the risk.

Located off the busy shopping road very easy to miss. Another example of a very special private house with its ballroom, magnificent decor and art collection you can imagine and be transported into another time. The audio is free and very well done.
