I went to this on the day that I did an early Vatican tour. In this case, we did not book a tour but just the entrance fee. The marble sculptures are truly breathtaking, amazingly even after the Vatican! The Bernini sculptures ... All in one place... Is incredible! And then, if you are so fortunate to be there on a beautiful day... Just wander through the gardens/forest and enjoy bwing alive and in Rome.
We went in the evening. It's amazing, because it's not crowded at all. Because of that, you have to get tickets in advance. They only let a certain number of people inside, which makes it super comfortable to look at the art and the sculptures. Best museum we saw in Rome!!
We took the guided tour, our guide was excellent. He explained the paintings and sculptures to us, it was very interesting, the time flew. And it wasn't too busy, unlike the Vatican. Booking is essential. We booked online with "loving Rome" the day before.
Hard to get tickets, so when you do, make sure you get there early (15-20 min prior to your appointment time). You will need to check your bags (purse too, ladies) and there may be a line for that. You'll have two hours to see the inside of the villa, which is easy since it is small. Don't forget to look up at the frescoed ceilings. Worth the trip just to see the Bernini sculptures.
beautiful collection. Apollo and Davne's sculpture was out of this world. The experience limited by time frames and the price could take the score down to 4 but...the quality of the exhibition makes you remember what's all about ...a unique opportunity to enjoy the best art. FYI- Avoid the cafe...easily the most disgusting sandwich I've had in time and I live in London...
