    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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!!

    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
