    Such a beautiful place! Just sat down and admired everything. There are obviously a lot of people and don’t forget to cover shoulders!

    Tour guide was Laura via Rome Private Guides. She was excellent and made our visit all the more interesting. She was knowledgeable, humorous and considerate to the needs of her party which included children. Highly recommend using a guide. Bonus if you get Laura!

    The forum is a neat park where you can explore all over the place. You can walk up steps to the lookout and you can get lost in all the pathways going all over the grounds. We actually found it difficult to find the exit other than the way we entered. But it's well worth the visit and you can spend as much or as little time there as you want.

    Our tour in Rome was great. Slip the line tour of St. Peter’s Square, Sistine Chapel, Museum is the way to go to see and learn this extraordinary place. Our tour guide, Rafaella was great. She was very knowledgable and funny. She answered our questions. We were very satisfied. Highly recommended!

    Ignore the outside; inside it is a fifth-century basilica, one of the most important in Christendom. I visited shortly after seeing Hagia Sophia in Istanbul and St. Peter in Rome; this one is smaller but definitely has its charms. The original (fifth-century) mosaics are amazing, although somewhat hard to see.

    Just like the photos! But a must do when in Rome.
    Good to see but probably better out of season. So many people! Watch out for people trying to give you Roses, they are selling them. Best to be curt as they keep going if you are polite!

    We visited the gallery with a pre-purchased ticket for a specific time. The guide to the exhibition gave 2 hours for the full guided tour of the exhibition.
    Arriving we found no queues at the entrance. We waited for the exact time of entry, after we delivered our bags to the designated place. Our entrance after checking in our tickets was easy. We began our walk through the halls with the amazing works of art that we had been informed about by the internet. In each space there is a museum curator. Fortunately there was air conditioning and this made our stay pleasant. The Gallery contains works of all categories, such as paintings, sculptures, decorations and more. At the end you can find souvenirs of the Museum in the shop at reasonable prices, depending on your choices. The gallery has a café with several items. Unfortunately the cafeteria does not have air conditioning and this was not good for the month of July. Despite the heat we sat for a while in the cafeteria. I went out of the normal exit to photograph the near buildings and gardens. I tried to re-enter from the same door and was noticed by some guys who were seemingly guards, who indicated to me in the worst way that the entrance is the next door, although they had seen me when I came out. They themselves were sloppy and smoked by throwing the cigarette down at the exit, giving the worst image of the Gallery which stands out for its beauty and the excellent works it hosts. The gardens, as well as the near buildings, but also the Gallery itself need maintenance. The facade of the gallery is covered with special fabric with its full image printed, as it would be preserved.

    Love the castle. A magic place where all good energies of the universe converge. Been here five times. Do NOT visit the bar. Chaotic service, no gluten free options. No will to make even the smallest effort.

    Small group tour, led by an archaeologist who has actually worked on the site and its paintings. Very informative signage, with pictures of reconstructions. Tour is over an hour long. The VR element was just a short (5-10 minute) thing, where you sit down with the headset and are taken though a reconstruction of the garden area. Nice, but a brief part of the tour. Rated 4 instead of 5 because it is DARK in there (Ok, it's underground...), which is good for preserving the paintings but not so good for seeing them. The tour is more informative about the architecture than the paintings.

    I highly recommend a visit to Villa Borghese and please choose the guided tour, it is excellent. Julia was a brilliant guide, both knowledgeable and interesting, hitting all the marks. You cannot possibly know what Julia knew, and to not have that information at hand while taking in the art, would be a mistake. Wonderful visit.

    The best art in the best palace in Rome. Much better than the Barberini etc. AND has the world’s best Velazquez painting - Pope Innocent X. This is a MUST see.

    Beautiful city center. The one and only Rome. It feels like every building is historic and with great cultural meaning.
