This is one of the best collections I have seen. Although the access is limited to some hundred visitors per 2h, it's still worthwhile to go early. Take the audio guide and take your time to see the artifacts at a relaxed pace. Make a reservation well ahead, the tickets seel out very quickly.

We bought tickets a month in advice of our trip and almost did not get in. It's worth getting the tickets. The museum is incredible and since they limit access you won't be crushed by crowds. In the last 20 minutes of our 2 hour time frame the galleries were almost empty. We went through to look at our favorite... More

Pre-sale!!!! that's the magic word. If you plan to visit borghese gallery booked on line at least 2-3 months ahead! As they are always sold out!!! Small but collections are amazing!!! I like the sculpture of David! There is maximum of 2 hours time limit I suggest pick either 9am or 1pm entrance! The place is near piazza de populous... More

We visited this fabulous museum on Sunday afternoon. Small, unique, and includes amazing works of art. Do not forget to check the website of the museum at least one week before your planned visit in order to book your tickets upfront. Otherwise you will not be able to enter the museum.

It would have been nice to see the Borghese Gallery, but when we tried to buy tickets on April 23, 2015, they said the first access available would be May 5, 2015. The building itself is striking the park surrounding is beautiful.

Stunning villa filled with even more stunning works of art. their collection of sculptures from Bernini is astounding. Definitely get the audio tour. You must book online at least 2 weeks ahead of time if not more. Plus it is a very nice walk through the park to get to the villa.

The gallery is a work of art in its own right but the collection is fantastic, too. All in a beautiful park. Wow.

This is my second visit to the Borghese Gallery and was equally impressed as I was the first time. Such a fabulous collection of art in a beautiful setting. The gardens were in bloom. This is a very busy time of year but the crowds move through fairly well.

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.
