We booked the 3pm slot. We got there at 2:40pm and there was a queue to collect the tickets we pre-bought. Then we had to join a queue to put our bags in storage - you cannot take bags inside.

Love this gallery. I could spend longer than they let you just looking at the marble works. Best with a guide which I did my first time through. Self tour I was trying to remember details ... should have at least rented the headset info....More
We booked in advance for a Wednesday afternoon visit which was free! (see their website). We did pay for an English speaking guide which was not expensive but proved very worthwhile as she was very knowledgeable and an interesting speaker. Some fantastic marble carvings by...More
We didn't reserve tickets this visit but got lucky with two no show tickets. Only 360 people are allowed in at on time and they force you out after your time slot, so plan ahead and get reservations...if you use the audioguide it assures you...More
We visited Borghese Gallery yesterday. I highly recommend it because they limit the amount of visitors per hour. I suggest getting tickets on line. It contains many noteworthy sculptors and artists. The gardens and grounds are beautiful.
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.

I'd prefer the Borghese to, say, the Vatican as the Vatican is so HUGE it takes a long time to cover the ground and unless you have skip the line tickets or queue before it opens, you can wait a long time to get in. The Borghese can be 'done' in about 90 minutes which would be impossible in the Vatican so could suit your purpose. It does depend what you're interested in though: the Borghese has a smattering of great artists eg Titian and Caravaggio, and great classical sculptures and when you step out into the park you see the real Roman as families take a stroll. You can also see the views of the city over Piazza Popolo (but it's a bit of a hike from the galleria). You could also consider the Capitolini museum for a mixture of historical artefacts and art. You can do a whistle-stop tour of the Capitolini in an hour and it's right next to the historical centre and the fora. Take a look at the contents and decide what you're most interested to see.
