Loved the limited visitors especially after the sheer numbers of people crowded onto the Vatican. Some of the most beautiful art, pairings and sculpture. I was captivated by Bernini's Apollo and Daphne

Book in advance online or you will not get in. It contains some interesting works and it has a broad grouping in one place. that being said, it was very crowded and very hard to appreciate the art.

The Borghese gallery, with its sculptures by Bernini and paintings by Caravaggio and others, is breathtaking. Do see it with the live guide that forms groups for tours in various languages before entering.

Bernini's artworks are absolutely breathtaking. The gallery has a great collection of his masterpieces. Booking is essential. We also thought that it's good they restrict the numbers of visitors per sessions so everyone will have a chance to have a good look at the artwork, unlike other places such as the Louvre and the Vatican museum where it's so crowded...

Hard to say something new about this deservedly famous villa/gallery, but preparatory reading online & in guidebooks in no way lessens the awe of being in the presence of such a high density of amazing masterpieces. The lovely grounds (filled with families on a Sunday), building, mosaics & paintings (several of which mirror the subjects of the sculptures) are all... More

There is so much to see! But our favorites were Bernini's sculpture of Daphne and Apollo, and Caravaggio painting of David & Goliath are stunning!

Italy keeps 30% of the masterpieces of art of the world! This place has probably one of the best collections of Italy

We were in Rome for Easter week. We had booked and paid for our tickets before we left the U.S. and it's a good thing we did or we would not have been able to get in. Many great works of art to see and the park surrounding the Villa was a very nice place to walk and picnic in.
