Galleria Borghese is located in the splendid park overlooking Rome's city centre, the Pincio terrace on piazza del Popolo.
The Museum is easily accessible on foot from our Residence via streets and gardens which characterise this magnificent pulsating green heart of the Parioli neighbourhood. Its history is closely linked to that of the noble Borghese family of Rome, from which all the beauties and the cultural and architectural legacy of the area derive their exuberance. The palace dates back to beginning of the '900s , a period in which Italy was still a Kingdom and the status quo of the noble families was still at its peak. Galleria Borghese, the most visited place in Rome only after the Vatican Museums, can be considered as unique in the world as the highest expression of the works by Bernini with its sculptures and the Caravaggio with its canvases. Also present are the works of other historical Italic artists such as Canova, Raffaello, Titian and Carracci.
It's a unique experience that is worth living for both those who love to do city sightseeing and for those travelling with their family. We definitely recommend a bit of organisation for the booking tickets (mandatory) and access routes so as to simplify the visit and limit the queues, especially during summertime that can cause exposure to high temperatures. For children, the early morning or late afternoon hours are the most recommended to visit with the museum, perhaps along with a wonderful walk in the park's greenery and especially a visit to the BioParco of Rome, full of attractions and didactic activities for the youngsters.
Also easy access to the centre of Rome for those who want a break from the views of the gallery with a passage through the open-air museum of Rome crossing it, to the heart of Piazza di Spagna and Fontana di Trevi. From the opposite side of the park, you can access the Mura Pinciane in Via Veneto which is a few minutes’ walk away.
During the summer, we will announce the opening of the theatrical season of the only Shakespeare Theatre in classic Anglo-Saxon style completely made of wood in Rome, right in Villa Borghese. You can rent bicycles, electric vehicles and rickshaws from 4 to 6 places in addition to the quaint park's train tour.
With just a few minutes’ walk from Galleria Borghese, you can visit the Bio Parco of Rome, Ipogeo di via Livenza, Piazza di Siena, Coppedè district, Porta Pinciana and Via Veneto.
It's possible rent bicycles and rickshaw at Ascol Bike.
