We visited the Borghese gallery on a Sunday morning. We planned to use the Roma pass so we attempted to make reservations over the phone but could never get anyone to answer the English line. While we didn't have reservations, we took Rick Steves advice and arrived 30 minutes before it opened. We were second in line and were able... More

While not knowledgable about art I love this place and the Bernini sculptures. Out of all the art work we saw this really stands out. If you get Roma pass then you just need to call and reserve and you can use it as one of your 2 passes to locations. Colesseum and Roman Forum count as one. You still... More

The Borghese Gardens are beautiful and the gallery is a must-see for those who enjoy art. There are several Bernini sculptures inside that are so beautiful and realistic. Everyone should make time to visit!

Set in a lovely park high up in Rome, above the Spanish Steps. Sculpture of true excellence, Berdini's talent is amazing to the eye. The rest of the place is fascinating for its oplulence and the plethora of art in every room. The staff at check-in are rushed and so a little rude, we didn't let them get us down,... More

Do NOT miss this site in Rome. Sure, reserve ahead if you can, but get there! The collection of art masters is certainly of the finest in Europe, but don't let that distract you from the majesty of the building, and the extraordinary decor within. Each room visited should be first viewed as a room, then for the art held... More

I've been to Rome many times but never quite made it to the Borghese Gallery. This time I went & was thrilled with the museum & the beautiful grounds surrounding the area.
