Reservations absolutely required. Rome's version of the Uffizi but I liked it better. Maybe it was the smaller, more intimate scale. I was blown away by the Caraveggios and the sculptures and that is not usually my favorite. Better audio than the Uffizzi. You can...More

We visited several art galleries in Italy recently and this was our favourite by far! Bernini and Caravaggio lovers will appreciate the Borghese, and especially the ability to get up close to the sculptures and view the fine details first hand. Other galleries did not...More

Make reservations and be early to stand in line. The paintings and sculpture were fabulous and the setting was lovely. The villa is surrounded by a lovely garden. There's a cafe to eat (and rest) either before or after viewing the collection.

Loved this original 'museum' in its own parkland with wonderful masterpieces still in the house they were designed for. The statue of David here was my favourite. Well worth a visit but you must book.

Absolutely beautiful!! Make sure you make your reservation on line as they limit attendance and sell out early. Ignore Rick Steve's book saying you can't use your camera. You do have to check your bags but not your camera. The subway stop is very close...More

Nothing can prepare you for the exquisite excellence of this magical place. Two hours is all you are allowed so why not book two slots and go twice? You won't regret it!

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
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

I do not think the "front room" is closed if you mean the room in the middle of the building with the outer staircases. The entrance to the museum is in the basement and that "front room" is accessible from one of the other... More
