Reviews about Borghese Gallery

Reviewed on 22 Nov 2014

An absolutely amazing museum. The statutes by Bellini are striking, dominating huge rooms encased in the most beautiful marble. The paintings upstairs are great but the first floor alone is worth the entry. Reserve online and bring a printed or electronic receipt, rent the headphones (the rooms are so full it helps to have the highlights pointed out) and spend the allotted two hours being wowed by the beauty of masterpieces being displayed in extravagant to the extreme opulence. The Cardinal who owned the villa and gathered and commissioned most of the art had the help of his uncle, the Pope, at the time. Walking through the surrounding park is a good way to wind down after the art overload.
