Famous villa constructed at the beginning of the 17th century for Cardinal Scipione Caffarelli Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V, which is surrounded by one of the largest and most beautiful public parks in Rome.
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
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
The greatest museum with beautiful art collection. Highly recommend to visit. Great experience of not crowded museum as you have to pre-book your visit day and time. Villa surrounded by gardens and located in a huge beautiful park where you can spend all day. Nice...More
Yes, you need to purchase tickets in advance. Yes, your time is limited to 2 hours. Yes, there are rules.
And that is why there aren’t throngs of people elbow to elbow. You’re able to experience each piece and have your own relationship with it...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
Angela M. gave us the most amazing tour of the Gallery and the Park. Her depth of knowledge and sense of humor made our tour with her fabulous. We came away with so much history. She really went the extra mile for our group! Highly...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
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.

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 of transfers, waiting for bus, having to walk from bus stop to gallery (about 10 minutes) plus bag check, I'd allow an an hour and a half. Plus you may want to grab lunch and gallery suggests arriving 15 minutes ahead of scheduled entrance time. Borghese Gallery lets a limited amount of people in two hour increments. Ideally, you might want to schedule 3:00 slot if available. Book way ahead to avoid disappointment. We visited Borghese gallery in May and booked tickets 3 weeks ahead and only the 5:00 slot was available.
