Roman palace worth visiting for its splendor and collection of art, especially its gigantic ceiling fresco of clouds and swirling figures by Italian painter-architect Pietro da Cortona.

Due to staff shortages, the third floor was unfortunately closed, and the admission price was a little expensive at 10 Euros. However, the second floor filled with Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces is incredible - El Greco, Caravaggio, the famous Henry VIII portrait and an amazing...More

Gallery great, but presumably due to staff shortages the floor with the early works was closed- very disappointing. However it is a great gallery, not too large, but maze like, though the works are well displayed.

Loved every minute inside here dropped in on while heading toward the Spanish steps and it was worth the detour - the artwork is exceptional, ceilings phenomenal and the Caravaggio work worth the entrance fee alone

A stunning collection of carravagio and other renaissance artists; When I was there the museum was deserted it was marvelous to be alone with such inspirational art work. The cats at the entrance where adorable and quite well fed. A very happy place to visit

This palazzo is no doubt a beautiful and elegant classical building. Every time you look at the fresco on the ceiling, you would always marvel at the skills of the old masters, the figures almost jump out of the painting. The facade of the building...More

Very generic paintings in 30 rooms. There are a couple of big names, but the actual items are far from important. Basically a tourist trap.More

The Palazzo Barberini buildings are rather poorly maintained, both inside and out. There are few truly important artists or works presented.Portraits of Henry VIII and Thomas More being the exceptions. The organization is well done, however.

A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is
all about action. From early morning through the wee
hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a
never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or
take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming
gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of
hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle
are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you

We visited in end of August, and the apartments were open at 10. I imagine that the opening and closing hours vary seasonally.
