Beautiful. A pleasure to visit. Lovely grounds, not crowded. A peek at how royalty lived. It takes about two hours to see everything so it is a nice morning visit

Wonderful gardens with lake, fountains and wonderful villas and art galleries,unfortunately the signage could be better to help you walk around these huge gardens.

We knew about the Bernini statues watching travel shows and knew what to expect - but were still blown away by their beauty in person. We found the painting gallery (upstairs) to be OK. The audio guide was confusing to use with the painting gallery since it wasn't clear which number to punch in (since they were not clearly displayed... More

1. Book in Advance online 2. If you wish to eat there pick a slot earlier than 11.00am. Ours visit finished at 1.00pm and the whole place closes then until 15.00. We had an audio which was good but even with that and not wasting time we missed the last top gallery and ran out of time. The building inside... More

If you love Renaissance Art you - probably in a daze - will walk about recognising numerous famous and fabulous works. That overworked word "awesome" is really appropriate.

Some say you need to buy tickets in advance and it is not true. Depends when you go. If you go an hour or two before closing, you can buy ticket on place. And do not worry, one hour is enough, even for biggest art lovers to enjoy it! Plus, before closing, less people and more peace to enjoy. you... More

The gallery itself is impressive, although there is minimal information inside to guide the trip if you don't pay for the additional 5 euro guide. Most upsetting, though, was the poor quality of the staff personnel. When we arrived, we saw a long queue to check bags; as we were carrying our passports and iPhones, we were nervous about this...

This gallery is amazing and contains the artwork that I always wanted to see. No words does it justice... A great thing is that they limit the number of visitors and give each group a 2 hour slot, which allows for really admiring the works, and not doing a bull run with crowds like in Vatican. Book a few days... More

This has great pieces of art. It's free on the first Sunday of the month which ended up a bonus for us! We saved 13 euros!! You must book a time to tour ahead of time as they let in only a select number of people at a time! It's well worth it!

The Grounds are beautiful and breathtaking. The Gallery was a bit of a diappointment. While there are beautiful pieces of Art, based on the word on the street, I just expected more. Okay to go to if you have time to kill. However, if you are tight for time, there are many other places you could visit.
