  • Wonderful Borromini's gallery a fantastic illusion! He left me speechless and is not to be missed. A little treasure outside of the tourist routes and perhaps little known so there is no need to book in advance, is lovely. Ask for a demonstration of an agent authorised to enter inside the gallery and will surprise you. For all historical notes I leave you to navigating on numerous internet sites.

  • Visited a first Sunday of October for free, I would perhaps not have if they had had to pay... The Museum has 3 or 4 rooms with tables and a few statues and the prospect of the Court is a trompe l'oeil original.

  • The art collections are concentrated in 4 halls, with a display that echoes the original policy. But the highlight is the illusionistic perspective by Borromini, a colonnade that seems longer than it actually is, in a lovely setting.

  • Well..the gallery itself is small and nice..not more then that.. But, the optical illusion was just amazing. I went to the Gallery especially for that and it fulfilled all my expectations
  • Small gallery, located inside an historical building. Famous for the forced perspective of Francesco Borromini. Worth a visit.
  • The forced perspective corridor was disappointing but the gallery was quite impressive, no information on any of the painting though!
  • The perspective corridor was incredible making the length look 30m but it was actually 8m the gallery is beautiful also with unique paintings and sculptures I recommend to anyone on a budget
  • Great collection of paintings. The forced-perspective by Borromini is also a must-see
