Borghese Gallery was a spectacular collection of ancient artwork housed in an elegant old mansion. We hired a private tour guide which made all the difference so the place came alive for us. I would go back.

It's a stunning collection of art, including sculptures by Bernini, paintings by Caravagio, Raphael and Titian in a beautiful setting!!! An absolute must see when in Rome!

Really enjoyed our visit here - very interesting but be sure to pre-book. Gardens are also very good.

The Borghese Gallery is a beautiful villa with fantastic art collection. Apollo and Daphne by Bernini is breathtaking statue! There was an exibition with Adzedin Alaia clothes. Take a walk around the park, on foot (if you have a lot of time). Is very relaxing.

Nice art but to be honest it was very poorly air conditioned which meant there was an uncomfortable journey throughout the building with barely any space to walk around it. Particular highlight was the carvaggio paintings. And that one where the woman is lying down.

The Gallery is located in a beautiful park which itself is a gift when you visit Rome in summer. The art collection is large and diverce but the most amaizing in my opinion are Bernini works. It's hard to imagine how someone could turn a cold piece of marble into something so beautiful and full of life. Booking in advance... More

Maybe if we had gone to Florence or Paris or other art hot-spots, this would have been less amazing. We did this our last day in town, after the Vatican museums and many gorgeous churches, and it was the best art experience we had. The art was lovely, but the fact that much of it was commissioned to fit THIS... More

The gallery is beyond amazing. Apollo and Daphne by Bernini leaves you moved for hours. But their reservation system is terrible, for roma pass you have to call (!) even from abroad (!!!) and to be there at least half an hour before. If you do so it's a breeze, I highly advise arriving 45 min in advance, getting your... More

A little off of the beaten tourist track, but still accessible, the Borghese is testament to the religious opulence of the 17th Century. Fantastic sculptures by Bernini are alongside artwork by Titian, Caravaggio, Raphael and Rubens and more...All Exceptional value, if you're an art buff. Make sure you pre-book, people turning up 'on the day' will be disappointed. The 2... More

The Gallery is outstanding and is located in a beautiful park setting. After attending the other must sights this is worth the trip.

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
