    I definitely recommend the multimedia audio tour they offer in multiple languages for €5 if you don't go there with a tour guide. Don't forget to look up! :) each room is a work of art on its own

    I think the 2 hours are not enough too enjoy all the the things.Ps:if you intend to buy a Roma Pass you will have the entrace for free and you can call and reserve an advance.Reservation is mandatory!
  • Salvatore D.
    Masterpieces by many artists can be seen here. My favourites are the marble sculptures by Bernini. Book and be punctual or you'll have to wait for the next turn to enter (that's up to two hours!)
  • Ann-Margaret M.
    Let's be honest. The art. was like a dream to see these works of art in person! It's June so it was hot and stuffy but it wasn't too crowded. Overall great experience.

    The audio guide is so worth the €5! No explanation of the works, otherwise. Amazing museum, not to be missed. Make sure to reserve your tickets online ahead of time.

    Amazing gallery but the booking is mandatory. Don't forget to see also it's garden on the back where you can see again from outside the Bernini statue Ratto di Proserpina.

    If you want to visit a minimum number of museums during your trip, this must be on the list. Be sure to reserve tickets beforehand cz they get sold out.

    The audio guide is worth every penny (5€). It offers good stories and background information. Makes the visit so much better. I fell in love with Bernini.

    In our opinion, the most beautiful gallery in Rome.The Bernini statuary is an absolute must-see. Considered one of the best collections of classical art in the world -at one time coveted by Napoleon.

    Amazing collection of art. So may Bernini sculptures, and all interesting and beautiful. Had an issue with tickets, but they made good on the error. The ceiling artwork is truly beautiful.

    Great collection, best to visit with a tour guide though. Limited english description for pieces. Few paintings/sculptures had audio option. You have to give your bag, but they wont take your jacket!

    Amazing art collection! Buy the tickets in advance as it is always crowded and lots of time fully booked! Loved the park as well :)

    Well-worth the fuss. A treasure trove of Bernini sculptures, Caravaggios, & incredible rooms. Book online 2-3 weeks ahead for tix. Tours are 2 hrs. Always sold out. Enjoy!!

    Impressive collection of art, but buying tickets 2 weeks in advance and not being allowed to carry any belongings inside is just ridiculous. Plus they most likely broke my camera which was in my bag

    Worth a visit, if you have some interest in Roman history. There are busts of the emporers, including Hadrian. Note: Bags & cameras have to be checked in before entering the museum.

    If you come to Rome, you MUST visit here! Masterpieces by Bernini, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, and more! Be sure to call and reserve ahead of time as they sell out days in advance.

    It's a must see attraction, tbest gallery in Rome. Make your reservation a couple of months before your trip in order to get tickets for the day you want, since the number of visitors aloud is limited

    An absolute must see when in Rome. Be stunned by Bernini's amazing sculptures. Make sure you make a reservation a couple weeks before you visit.

    The Borghese Gallery, for all its spectacular art content, has a master's missing - Michelangelo. Scipione Borghese was only a small crucifix made by the artist, and that, unfortunately, disappeared

    A real gem inside the most beautiful park in Rome. The museums of Rome will remain open to the public all summer and will host events and guided tours. For info please call 060608.

    One of the city's most exquisite art collections. If you only have time to visit one museum in Rome, make sure it's this one!

    Since you are aloud to stay for only 2 hours, visit the attractions and then, watch the rest. Attractions: Caravaggio room, Bernini's sculptures, Venetian paintings and Paulina Bonaparte (Canova).

    The best museum that I visited in Rome. Don't forget to make a reservation for your visit at least a few days in advance.

    You don't need the reservation to get there. Just come to the ticket desk few minutes after the time slot begun (9/11/13h etc).

    You must book tickets in advance and you have only two hours to see this beautiful gallery. But it is definitely worth seeing. :-)

    They say the best museum in Rome is the city itself. That may be so, but the Galleria Borghese is still a gem worth seeing.

    Best thing here is the sculptures, particularly the Rape of Prospina, which used to be at the Palazzo Ludovosi.

    Begun in 1608 by Flaminio Ponzio and continued by Jan van Santen (Giovanni Vasanzio) upon his death, the Casino Borghese was designed to house Cardinal Scipione Borghese's art collection.

    Please book the tickets online the day before at least, however it will not save you from staying in the long line to get your ticket (awful entrance organization)
