Owner description: Right in the center of Rome, close to Piazza Venezia, Palazzo Colonna is one of the greatest Barocco Palaces of the eternal city. The impressive Colonna's Collections of paintings, sculptures and furniture from the 14th to the 18th century are unique and part of the roman history. The Colonna Gallery is open to the public every Saturday morning from 9 am to 1,15 pm (last entrance) from Via della Pilotta 17. All other days, including Saturday afternoon, private visits by appointment. Free guided tour (every Saturday): - in Italian at 10.00 And 11.00 Am - in French at 10.30 Am - in English at 12 am Private visits on request are available every day of the year. We also recommend a visit to the stunning Princess Isabelle Apartment with its incredible Van Wittel and Flemish Collections and the Pinturicchio frescoes.

An American, I was here for the noon English tour. The couple ahead of me were Italian. Apparently "WOW" is now international language, as that was our joint response upon entering the main premise. It is the Sistine Chapel on steroids with a dozen crystal chandeliers thrown to boot. The real bonus is the cannonball imbedded in the marble stairs since the revolution of 1849 (you'll get the story when there). I believe the entry is 12E. Then - if you wish to see the Princess Isabelle Apartment - it's additional. With a granddaughter carrying that name, I wasn't about to pass it up. Even had she been Princess Daisy Mae, it would have been worth the additional expense. Sadly, only open Saturdays. Few places get a 5 in my book. This is one.

What an amazing Palace, ceiling frescos throughout. The main Gallery is unreal. Enjoyed a private tour with a passionate English speaking guide.

This Palazzo is a private residence open on Saturday only. I went to Rome specifically see this museum and was not disappointed. The rooms are stunning and may have been an inspiration for the Palace of Versailles.

This marvel is still owned by the Colonna family. A family genealogy that dates back a thousand years. In October, It is open only on Saturdays from 09:00-13:00 hrs. You will be awed by the many fabulous rooms that are chockful of art. What a treat for the eye as well as for your artistic soul. We had no need for advanced reservations. If you have time, this should be on top of your list after the other major attractions.

What a lovely place. It is nice it is open just on saturdays between 0900 and 12.15.

It is a former papal palace with a lot of history. It is in the centre, close to piazza venezia. Entrance through pelotta.

Inside there is a very nice ballroom and many interesting other rooms.

It is a hidden gem, quiet and different than some of the more well known places.
