Huge collection of paintings and sculptures. Even the building itself has a great interest ! Notice you need to do a reservation (calling them will avoid you paying some fees). and for Roma pass holders, you have to call to reserve : no other choices

Fantastic, the mueseum has so many works that are fabulous. I recommend hiring the audio guide so you hear all the background information on the history of the Borghese Family, the Cardinal and the works.

We are fairly frequent visitors to Rome but we had never before visited the Borghese gallery. As it was raining, we were looking for indoor attractions and were so glad we were able to spend two hours going around this amazing place. The sculptures br Bernini and many others were awesome, as were paintings by Caravaggio, Titian, Canaletto, Botticelli, Rubens... More

Apparently fully booked until April but certainly didn't look busy. The cafe just inside you could use but not the toilet unless you had a ticket (which we didn't due to being fully booked. :-(

Though I had booked a visit to the Gallery on the phone beforehand we had a problem wiyh admission.

Galleria Borghese was the last stop on our week-long vacation in Rome, and what a perfect ending to a wonderful trip. The classical statuary is gorgeous and in immaculate condition, considering much of it is approaching 2,000 years old. And words can't begin to describe the Bernini sculptures. They are gorgeous and fascinating. The upstairs is focused on paintings, and... More

The paintings and statues are amazing. The ceiling is beautiful. Everything is majestic. You need to visit the gallery and see what it hides inside. It is really big so it's not too crowded.

We had a 5-7pm reservation and it was perfect. Very few people were in the museum making it a great time to really appreciate the Bernini statues! A highlight was the Zootropio exhibit by Mat Collishaw. Wow! It was mesmerizing.

This was our fourth trip to Rome, but our first to Borghese. I am so glad we finally saw it! Spectacular pieces and beautiful grounds. Audio tour is only 5 euros; highly recommended.
