Even though I had looked at length at the Gallery's web site, I was unprepared for how blown away I was in the presence of the gorgeous sculptures and artwork. Visitors are only allowed 2 hours so we took Rick Steves' advice and went to the second floor first (we did find Mr. Steves guide to Rome to be an... More

The first floor of the Gallery - no words to describe. My 14 year old son (good student, intelligent, a normal computer and video games loving teenager) said that it was the best thing he saw during our Rome vacation. The first floor consists of the sculptures by Bernini and other sculptors. We bought an audio guide which offered really... More

Find any way possible to make a stop here, so worth it. Breathtaking. There is a two hour limit in the museum and you need to reserve tickets online as it is quite popular.

We went with Viatour who consistently provide excellent guides from Dark Rome. Our trip was booked in advance (essential as there is usually a waiting list of days for an entry ticket to keep numbers down). The Bernini sculptures must be the finest in the world and the art work was an amazing collection of the finest Italian artists. Do... More

Do not miss Borghese Gallery in Rome; you can see an amazing collection of paintings and sculptures, works of Tizian, Raphael, Caravaggio etc. I especially admired " The rape of Proserpina" (Bernini). Don't forget your tickets reservations - booking online - two weeks before.

We had seen that threr was a Giacommetti exhibition which we were very keen to see. When we got there we were informed that it was severakldays before we could get tickets. We had to the a train ride through the park which was a small compensation even though it was very beautiful.
