  • Definitely recommended for art lovers. The gallery is not overwhelming (four rooms) but it is necessary to take time to review the handout to find such notable works as Artemesia Gentileschi's Madonna...  more »
  • Our guide brought us here and was able to provide so much information and pointed out different art styles etc without this it would have been a much poorer experience. Some amazing artwork and the Bo...  more »
  • The building that houses the Spada Gallery is very nice. The entrance to the Gallery is located in one of the side streets. The Gallery has interesting paintings, among which we highlight the Gentileschi, father and daughter, and "the astronomers" of Tornioli (Caravaggist, clear the stop shop "under the Narcissus by Caravaggio), Brueghel the elder, Guido Reni. In the kiosk inside one can admire a work of architecture of Borromini. It's an ingenious opora for his perspective. At first glance it seems that we are facing a long Gallery in which background you find a huge statue. In fact the Gallery is only ten meters long and the statue in the background is smaller than it appears. But the star of the Gallery is Rori. A cat fat lovers living in the garden in front of the gallery. Rori doesn't walk, his bulk won't allow it. Only moves by rolling. A show within the show. A tip for the keepers: maybe some diet doesn't hurt.

  • The gallery is nice and has beautiful pictures. And then the "false perspective" must be visited inside the yard.
  • Must visit while in Rome. It features a great collection of painting and the amazing perspective of Borromini.
  • 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.
  • Small art gallery. Check the courtyard.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
