The collection of art housed at the Borghese Gallery is nothing short of superb, however the admission fee of €15 in relation to the relatively short visit time is quite steep in my opinion. It is one of the few things in Rome you will...More

Been here twice now and wish I could return more often. I am not big into art. I don't know the correct terms. The Bernini statues are moving. Each time I see them, I feel like I am listening to a story. The Roman mosaics...More

This is a can't-miss in Rome. One of the greatest museums in the world-incredible sculpture by Bernini, works by Caravaggio, Titian, and much more.

At first, I thought it was expensive. But I definitely got my money's worth. Find artists who you should have known and examine their paintings and sculptures, some of which have their own style. After visiting the gallery, take your time at Borghese Garden.

Probably one of my favorite galleries in the world, we've now visited twice. One of the great things is that with tickets, you don't have to stand around waiting in line forever, like some galleries, and you won't be sucked in for a massively overwhelming...More

Parioli
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

Sorry I don't know the answer to that because ticket was included in tour. I know they limit the number of people allowed inside the gallery at once. Likely that the tour agencies buy a block of tickets each day. It was nice... More
