Galleria Borghese - Review
Set in the beautiful setting of Villa Borghese, this gallery preserves the stunning sculptures, reliefs, mosaics and paintings from the 15th to the 18th century. The collection is attributed to Cardinal Scipione Borghese in the early 17th century and is a treat for art lovers.
Plan a trip to Rome to visit Galleria Borghese exhibiting masterpieces of artists like Antonello da Messina, Giovanni Bellini, Raffaello, Tiziano, Correggio, Caravaggio and sculptures of sculptures of Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Canova, this museum is one of the prized possessions of the city.
The verdant garden around the museum building is also great to spend some peaceful time.

Galleria Borghese, Rome Reviews
Simply a 'must visit' for any art lover in Rome - full stop. The founder - Cardinal Scipione Borghese - had various qualities (the guides will explain), but an awesome eye for artistic talent - in particular, the younger Bernini. The 2-hour time limit is strictly enforced, but easily worth it - it just guarantees return visits in future. On your first visit, get the human-guided tour (with audio assistance - you'll see what I mean) - the guides are excellent and informative. A tip: make sure you know for which part of the Borghese Estate you are heading before you set off to the Galleria. It's all beautiful, but best explored at leisure rather than in a hurry!
My adult kids and I visited just after lunchtime - we had reserved a 1pm ticket. The gallery wasn't too crowded for us to enjoy the incredible artwork including amazing sculptures by Bernini and beautiful paintings by Caravaggio. We paid 17€ for our tickets, but didn't see an option for an audio guide. It would have been more enjoyable to have an explanation of what we were seeing, but we still had a fantastic time. Almost as enjoyable as the interior of the gallery was the exterior settings of the Villa Borghese Gardens. The park was incredibly large and reminded me almost of the scale of Central Park in NYC. We rented bikes to see most of the park and also enjoyed VyTA, a beautiful cafe on the grounds of the Gardens. I highly recommend the Galleria Borghese as a must-see in Rome!
Truly moving. Transcendental. I would even go as far as to argue it is perhaps more superb and awe-inspiring than the marvelous Sistine Chapel. Each room is an intricate labrynith of wood, paint, wonder and grace. When any single room is still and quiet and uninterrupted by the clash and raucous of a guided tour, it almost feels heavenly - like being a note in a Vivaldi symphony, like seeing Joan's visions for oneself. Go, and rejuvenate your soul.
This gallery has quite a few very famous masterpieces! It was very interesting to see. If your going to bring kids, make sure they are interested before spending your money. A couple from the U.S. were there with their 3 children and only one showed any interest. The gallery is extremely glamorous, artwork from the floors right to the ceilings. The gallery takes about 2 hours with a guide but you are able to stroll through at your own pace with or without audioguides.
This has to be one of my favorite places on earth. Please note that it is very important to get tickets online several days in advance to get into the museum. The paintings include some very famous ones, and some unusual and unique ones as well. For me it is all about the sculptures, the details captured in marble are just so lifelike. The grounds and gardens around the museum are also a great way to spend the day exploring.
