The Borghese Gallery is definitely worth a visit. The Palazzo and the art collection are quite astonishing. The admittance time is assigned and only allows a 2-hour visit which we found to be sufficient. The Cafe and gift shop are both not as inviting and well-stocked as other museums. But then, in Rome there are more places for a meal,... More

This is actually very small for a museum and it’s at the end of a big park with contradicting indications but it has some amazing sculptures. You have to make reservation and be there at the time you are scheduled or you will lose from your 2 hours visit time. Unfortunately, all written explanation inside the museum are in Italian....

Amazing. Beautiful. I loved it. We booked on line, so did not have to wait to get in. There is an extra fee, but it is worth it.

We visited on a Saturday in January. We did the 9:00 entry. Be aware that you have two hours in the museum. For example, we entered at 9:00 and had to leave by 11:00. At 11:00 another group of visitors was admitted. We took the guided tour (audio guide was 5 Euro while the guided tour was only 6.50 Euro).... More

Our second visit to the Borghese was even better than the first. The most amazing works to us are Bernini's "Apollo & Daphne" (the exquisite work on the leaves, fingers and toes is amazing) and "Rape of Proserpina" (the emotion captured in the eyes is remarkable). With an amazing collection of Caravaggio, Titian, Raphael and Rubens to name just a... More

I agree with the other positive comments here and would like to add the following. I would suggest late morning through early afternoon as a good time to visit to enjoy the light in and around the gallery. It enhanced our visit.

We liked very much this attraction. It's good for strolling through a beautiful park before enter the museum. We got there by metro. The Gallery has Caravaggio paintings and Bernini sculptures like 'Il ratto di Proserpina' among others.

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.
