We walked all the way from St. Peters to get there in the July heat, and my kids complained the whole way. But it was worth the walk. My oldest (moody) teenage daughter loved it, so that's something worth noting. It was my second time...More

Beautiful villa with an incredible collection. Small but 2 hours is almost not enough. You can only spend 2 hours per visit, so definitely need to pace the visit. The audioguide is also exceptionally good.

Beautiful painted walls and ceilings. Of course the statues of Bernini are gorgeous - the way the hands press into the flesh makes it appear so real. Don't miss out on this museum. The park around it is also definitely worth visiting.

The Borghese Gallery is one of the gems of Rome. Gorgeous Bernini sculptures displayed in a beautiful palace. Having a guided tour to explain the stories behind the art is well worth it. Be sure to purchase tickets in advance.

I would definitely recommend booking in advance. The whole experience was mind-blowing and the Bernini sculptures were just mesmerising. I am not artist by any measure but even I could enjoy the atmosphere and experience. To avoid majority of the crowds, I definitely recommend arriving...More

If you like renaissance art, sculptures and architecture then this is a place to visit in Rome. The location of the house is really beautiful, in the large Borghese park. I enjoyed the sculptures and the intricate roof paintings the most. It was however rather...More

It is a gem, for centuries hidden from public eye, collecting few marvelous statues and paintings that you need to have some information about to enjoy, therefore I strongly recommend to go with its official guided toor.

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
