    For the second time in 5 years visit this gallery, located in a beautiful Palace. Interesting (albeit small) collection, which consists of Raphael, El Greco, Caravaggio, Guido Reni. Magnificent frescoes on the scene in the halls. Palais a few visitors that allows you to safely enjoy the masterpieces. It is a pity only that not all rooms are open.

    Stunning Palazzo with a huge, comprehensive art collection. Not as overrun as the Galeria Borghese. A place to let time and study. Anyone who appreciates the well-known Italian artist is right here.

    A small museum, Raphael, Caravaggio, El Greco. Famous hits and. Where August's pretty crowded when I went, but for some reason only here rattle. Slowly take in staff. Was said in particular, less genuine Holbein's Henry VIII '. Also museums in Italy no cooling or painting escapes the room there are many to worry about more of LEDs however is a lot here, air-conditioned room cooling comfort look around and could (not free but may be due). Exterior of the building is nice, take a look at is the spot you want to.

  • Second floor was closed but it's still listed on the signs. When I visited, part of the ground floor was closed as well. If I knew the second floor was closed, I wouldn't have bothered. Nice collection for what I saw but a bit much to pay for that little bit.
  • Beautiful renaissance Palazzo by Carlo Maderno, Borromini and Bernini.
  • Fantastic collection and a heavily place
  • Run down, especially the gardens, this is August and it seems they haven't trimmed the bushes once this year, the greenhouse is abandoned, 3rd floor of the museum is closed, lots of historical statues falling apart... And the mansion is empty of all its original furniture
  • Amazing artwork!

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.
