Amazing interior not obvious from outside

It would be very easy to miss this fantastic museum. The exterior, on one of the busier roads, looks nothing special but the rooms inside are spectacular. Paintings by some of the masters hang on the walls but the real treasures are the rooms. The audio guide is well presented, very informative and easy to operate. At 12 euros it... More

The visit was well worth the time. The audio delivery in superb English was par excellence. Fascinating insight into the lives of the Doria family whilst in residence . Informed us of the restoration work and opening this beautiful private residence for the public to share. Art lovers will adore the many paintings on display throughout the rooms. Highly recommended.

I'm giving this a 5 because of its excellent value for money. As other contributors say, there's not a bucket load of good stuff but the good stuff is still in front of my eyes three days later- Carravagio, Valazaquez, Bellini, Breughal- plus the hall of mirrors. Definitely do the audio guide as it is narrated in part by the... More

Don't overlook these lesser known gems while in Rome. This is an ideal place to visit if you have only 2 hours to spare. There is a guided tour of the entire palace and museum or just the palace rooms. The throne rooms was fascinating and the guided audio tour brought out the touching personal story of the royal couple... More

This was one of the places on my must-see list when in Rome and I'm so glad I finally had the opportunity to visit! So much attention to detail has gone into the ornately decorated walls and the choice of furniture and art. We were so impressed -- and can see why people liken it to the Hall of Mirrors.... More

Kind of a hidden gem right in the heart of Rome. Use the audio guide for the personal tour by one of the family members. The history of the palace is interesting and well explained with bits of Roman history in the story of the palace. Not overwhelming but enough art (2 Caravaggios) and beauty to keep one interested. The... More

Amazing collection of furnishings and art works spread throughout the whole building. Very interesting to see close up the standard of detail in the drapes and furnishings. Some items showing signs of age but that's to be expected. Attached coffee/tea room was good value after spending time on our feet.

A private museum with a great collection of old european painting. We could find there works of Breughel, Ribera, Rembrandt, van Dyck and first of all two early paintings of Caravaggio. The palace itself is very beautiful, even if the exposition could be better: the description of paintings is poor (only audioguide) and paintings are too to close to each... More

The Palazzo Doria Pamphilj is listed in the book 'Great Smaller Museums of Europe' by J. Stourton, but actually it's not small but medium-sized. After a hesitant start in the first couple of rooms where you see paintings and sculptures by lesser-known artists you gradually go to the larger galleries where you get the greater stuff - Italian, French etc....

Great place to visit. Not over crowded. Interesting and a nice change from the standard well known tourist attractions in Rome. Would thoroughly recommend visiting.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
