We weren’t sure when we would be able to visit. So we ‘just winged it’- after visiting a local Vodafone store for a SIM card. Unfortunately for us. They were booked solid for the next 3 days!!! Maybe you could do it with a tour...More

I have spent half day in the premises touring its garden and renting a bike. The place is refreshing in the middle of the city. one should go there whenever in Rome.

Lovely grounds and amazing exhibits in the museum inside. Book tickets in advance online as they sell out quickly. It gives you a specific day and timeslot though so make sure you can commit! Definitely worth a visit.

The villa houses amazing artworks, especially the awe-inspiring sculptures by Bernini, it’s definitely a must-see in Rome. It’s better to reserve tickets a few days earlier online because the tickets were sold out really quick during peak season. On another note, I would recommend to...More

I'd highly recommend booking a guided tour of the museum. Our guide was fantastic, he energised his descriptions with modern day contexts so everyone related to his explanations. The museum allows 350 people in for 2 hour slots. I visited from 11.00 - 13.00, and...More

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

I'm not sure if there's a bus that runs directly between St Peters and Borghese gallery. (You might want to consider a cab which isn't too expensive and much less aggravation finding the gallery w/o wasting time) So because... More
