Rome visit.

If you are interested in art works this is worth a visit. The surrounding gardens are also worth alook although not in summer.

The villa and the artworks are on par with the best exhibits I've seen anywhere. The rooms are so crammed with treasures and over the top decor you hardly know where to look first. A guided tour is highly recommended as you'll get far more out of the visit by knowing the stories behind the art. Just arrive in advance,... More

I loved this gallery and the gardens around it. Pre book as it gets very busy. When we went the were sold out for the next 4 days. You get a timed ticket and an alloted amount of time in the gallery itself but there is more than enough time. The sculptures are some of the best around. Every room... More

If you are into sculptures, go and see this gallery. It has 4 of the 5 Bernini masterpieces and they are truly magnificent. I had a tear in my eye! The room decorations are masterpieces in their own right! You have to book in advance and get a 2 hour time slot. Be there early to avoid the queues but... More

It's a wonderful museum - Bernini at his best!! Remember you have to make reservations to get in! We used our Roma pass on this - just make sure they have you for correct time and date. Save some time for the park too! Make sure you pay for the audio guide - it is well worth it - if... More

Not sure why anyone would come to Rome and not visit this Gallery. The sculptures by Bernina were amazing.

Came here with family. Bernini's David is stunning. But the organisation of the place is a real mess. We collected our pre-booked tickets and wandered around the building on the outside looking with other ticket-holders for a door to get in, there was no door. Poor instructions. Disinterested staff.

And Caravaggio. What a collection. Some of the most famous Bernini sculptures anywhere. And some equally wonderful Caravaggio paintings. Take a tour, well worth it.

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
