We are lucky that we immediately went to the site without reservation, otherwise must be reserved a few days earlier. You can book on their website on the internet.

While I have to give it five stars for the art and location and the beautiful building, the museum is so crowded and popular that it is hard to enjoy. We waited outside in the rain a half hour till we were allowed to come inside and stand in line to get tickets for our voucher. There were fairly long... More

The Borghese galleries are an exceptional collection of art (paintings, ancient sculptures) - bernini in particular has some excellent representations of the ancient people - as if they were alive in front of u. Located in a very nice parc (called villa borghese) - offering a quiet retreat from the hussle & bussle of Rome center. The price is well... More

Just as you can see all you need to know about French impressionists in the Musee d'Orsay, and all about Austrian modernism in the Vienna's Belvedere, the Borghese Gallery offers a great glimpse on the (mainly) Italian baroque. Here, you can easily follow the development of the baroque painting from the 15th to the 18 century. Yes, there are more... More

This most exquisite of small galleries was the highlight of our visit. We were informed by the hotel that it was sold out and indeed when we went, there was a notice up to that effect, but we were lucky and got tickets straight away. The sculptures and paintings were a delight and it was joy to stroll around

Recently in Rome. Amazing Gallery. Be prepared to leave your purse and backpacks, cell phones, camera, etc. with front desk. I was very concerned but got everything back in order. We booked a tour guide while we were there and I definitely recommend doing so. The information she provided was amazing and without her it would have been difficult to... More

The Borghese Gallery is a delightful, small gallery packed with sculpture on the first floor and paintings on the second floor. The museum is so popular that they limit your time to a 2 hour visit. Spend this time wisely - we got so caught up with the sculptures that we had only 20 minutes left for the paintings upstairs.... More

I took a guided tour offered by the gallery, and was very glad I did. You can only book the tour at the gallery, about a half hour before you're scheduled to go in, and when I was there it only ran in English in the mornings (check the website for times). It cost 6.50 Euros. You need to book... More

The gallery is small and only allows you two hours. You must reserve in advance for a specific time slot. You are not allowed to bring any personal bags in, they must be checked and they are very strict about this. It has a very good painting collection upstairs - which you probably will see first. But the real treasure... More
