Galleria Borghese, Rome

4.5
#1 of 162 in Museums in Rome
Galleria Borghese is housed in a villa once used for elegant private parties. The art gallery contains a substantial part of a collection of paintings and sculptures amassed by Scipione Borghese, a 17th-century cardinal and art patron. Borghese was an early benefactor of artists Caravaggio and Bernini. You can explore 20 rooms across two floors. The main floor is mostly devoted to the period between the first and the third centuries, featuring mosaics of gladiators and several sculptures. In other sections of the gallery, you can see works by such artists as Canova, Raphael, Correggio, Titian, Rubens, and Veronese. An advance ticket, which you can book on the gallery's website, is required.

  • Works of beauty (Roman mosaics, statues of Bernini, paintings of Caravaggio...) which we have generally seen a thousand photographs and which we discover in their wonder... Great idea to have limited the number of visitors (in two-hour increments) so that we don't jostle too much... Online booking is mandatory (and having printed your tickets!). The best time is the first instalment of the morning, so we keep all day the glare of this visit ... Too bad the reception is as kind as a prison door.

  • Absolutely spectacular! Be warned that no bags are allowed, except very small handbags. You can put your belongings in a locker for free though, so don't worry.Fabulous place & some truly amazing artwork. Visits are limited to 2 hours, which can make the visit a rushed. Toilets on the staircase are worth a visit. Cafe is good too. Well worth a visit if you like art.
  • Sculptures and paintings were beautiful, and the museum/villa has been well-restored. I think it will be worth your time. Entry was disorganized...the inside lower-level entrance marked on the map, but they decided to only let us enter through the upstairs entrance in the blazing sun. And waited until two minutes before entry time to inform the long line of people waiting downstairs. Management: at €15 a head, you can afford to provide toilet paper in at least one of the restrooms.
