“Incredibly beautiful place with fabulous works of art.”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

Disappoints in gardens. Just large greens ace but the gallerie was breathtaking. The old masterpieces were amazing. Don't bother getting audio guide. Just makes visit too long

“Hard to find coming out of Metro Spanga”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

Beautiful sculptures in a very nice villa setting. It was incredibally hard to find this place coming out of the SPANGA metro stop. The Villa is inside the vast park but the there is no signage pointing tourist in the direction for the Villa Borghese. We had to ask several people for directions and some of them didn't know.... other tourists were also lost.

“Absolutely Magnificant!”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

The art work here was outstanding, but the building itself, and the wonderful frescoed ceilings were just magnificant. The grounds are so beautiful and huge. And no crowds! This was one of the most outstanding places we saw.

“A Must See”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

A must see! You must arrange for tickets ahead of time, sometimes up to week in advance. Pick them up on arrival, check all bags, get audio guide and you're off. Could easily spend the whole day in the gardens etc
