I visited the Borghese Villa twice with the kids. It was too late to buy tickets after arrival, even though we were in Rome 13 days. Still we tried to go in and buy tickets since we were walking buy to go to the zoo....More

The villa I surrounded by a park which is such a relaxing place to be the scream every 15 minutes is fun to see due to the visitors jumping out of their skin

It's the perfect size for a gallery, not too overwhelming but also has so many wonderful pieces. You definitely need to book ahead of time. We did not know if we want to visit this place before our trip so I did not book in...More

We learned that the Vatican and Saint Peters Basicila was funded in part by the Borghese family. Later you can see their family name on the front of St. Peters. An excellent collection of art and sculptures in Rome by the masters. Please note a...More

The only reason I rate this as terrible was not because of the Gallery but because of Trip Advisor/Viator's lousy customer service. We booked our tickets through Trip Advisor/Viator just before we left the US. However when we got to the Gallery several days later...More

My daughter is an art major, so she goes crazy looking at an art collection like the one at Borghese. I was more interested in the surrounding gardens, which are in need of restoration and care.

A great museum that is not packed with tourists. Best to book your tickets early, entrance is staggered every 2 hours. Many works by Bernini.

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and

I am going to Rome in September. Do I have to book tickets in advanced or is it just fine to buy them at the museum the day I want to go? (It's because I don't know if I'll have free time on my itinerary so that's why I haven't bought them). Are queues long here during September?

Sorry I don't know the answer to that because ticket was included in tour. I know they limit the number of people allowed inside the gallery at once. Likely that the tour agencies buy a block of tickets each day. It was nice... More

There is a cafe at the gallery and an outdoor one in the grounds. Make sure you have prebooked for the gallery though or you won't get in.
