Everyone knows the art is fantastic at the Borghese Gallery, so I will just talk about logistics. You absolutely do have to book your tickets in advance for the Borghese Gallery. We got there very close to the admission time for our tickets and it ate into our time a wee bit because I wanted to get the audio guide.... More

Visits to the Borghese Gallery are timed, and you must leave within 2 hours after your entry time. Tickets sell out quickly, so reserving in advance by internet is recommended. Be prepared to check all bags, including small handbags, as they're not permitted in the galleries. The artwork is simply astounding, as is the architecture of the villa itself. The... More

This was a repeat visit for us. The gallery is fabulous with one art icon after another. The two hour limitation is not a problem - be sure to get reservations as they were turning lots of people away.

Very well organized visit, prebooked, the crowd wasn't so tough, and the view of the exposed pieces was quiet good.

We actually called from the states(using Skye) before we left to buy our tickets. You will need a Roma Card too to gain entry, buy the three day card if you plan to also see the Colosseum,etc. We thought the two day would be enough but it only allowed one museum and discounts on the others The guides are very...

The bernini's are exquisite and the gardens a serene respite from the hectic pace of Rome. We remember this as one of our highlights to our Roman adventure.

If you are interested in art this is a must see attraction. However, the timed visits mean that as you go from room to room you always seem to be in a crowd as others make their way round at the same time. Also if you really want to spend time looking at the pictures etc, you will be disappointed.... More

We had choosen to hire a professional guide which is pricey at 200 euro for 3 hours, but we felt it was worth it as when you are confronted with such an abundance of incredible paintings and sculptures you really want to know more about them. and most of it done 400-600 years ago, it´s truly mindnumbing that such artistry...

Make sure to take the time to wander the incredible Borghese Gardens surrounding the gallery as well - it is the "central Park" of Rome.
