This is a beautiful gallery. Be advices you only have 2 hours to explore and it is best to make reservations. When we were there on a Friday, the next reservation was for Tuesday the following week. Most of your time should be spent on floor one if sculptures are your thing. Definitely a don't miss when visiting Rome

Sold out for over a week in advance. Book before you go or you won't get in. The parkland around is worth a visit and pedestrian friendly.

My wife and I loved the gallery. We are not art people, but the lovely walk up the Spanish steps and through the park made this and the museum a wonderful day. We rented the audio guides which really helped us understand the art. The limited crowds, due to the reservation system, and intimacy with the art, makes this a... More

Really enjoyable place. See the beautiful gallerie (but order the tickets and the time for visit in advance, via Internet), walk ijn the park, take the electric car and drive on the park roads. Finally, visit the location watching at Rome and specifically at Piacca Popola. This visit was planned by us in advance, and I really regret only that... More

I am a seasoned art gallery visitor and even I found myself absent minded oh reaching for the sculpture to touch it..... And I abhor anyone who does not preserve cultural pieces- to the extent that I have told someone else to behave. The Canova was so...so...SO beautiful!

We are glad we pre-purchased tickets so we were able to enjoy the amazing artwork and sculptures in this wonderful gallery. The grounds surrounding it are also quite impressive and very expansive. I believe it is widely used for walkers and runners alike, although we were there on a rainy day so seemed lightly used. One is allowed a strict... More

We toured Borghese on our own. We eventually bought a tour book to better understand what we were looking at. We had ore ought our tickets- but watched as others were turned away without theirs or because it was sold out. They are very strict. Photos were permitted without flash- and the artwork was amazing. This includes the architecture, the... More

Brilliant museum. An extremely impressive former home. Stunning ceilings and amazing artworks. Great Bernini sculptures. You must book in advance. Cafe inside is fine and decent value. Set in a lovely park which is worth exploring too. Take your time looking round. 2 hours is plenty (and all that you are allowed) and if you are patient the crowds will... More

Savor the Borghese gallery, it is exceptional and the reservations mean smaller crowds. The sculptures are truly inspiring.

Everything about this gallery is absolutely mesmerizing. The fact that the number of visitors are limited really allows you to gasp in and admire the beauty of the artworks. The setting is very fine. You can also enjoy a very nice cafe at the same place while waiting for your visit time, they had the best white chocolate muffins that... More

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.
