The Borghese Gallery probably surpasses any other art museum I've been to (except Sistine Chapel), with the wall to ceiling coverage of ornate paintings, amazing Bernini sculptures that look like he sculpted with butter instead of marble. Timed entry of 2 hours, which is actually the right amount of time since there are very few available seating opportunities, and 2 hours of saturated art beauty is enough for me. The grounds around Borghese are also beautiful, remind me of Central Park in NY and idyllic to come relax even if not to visit the gallery.

If going to the Galleria Borghese, defintely go with a guide. There's so much to see and your time is limited to 2 hours, and a guide is able to pick out the most interesting pieces in each room. We had an excellent one from City Wonders (Angela). Paintings by Caravaggio and Titian, sculptures by Bernini, the list goes on and on. Afterwards the surrounding parkland, which is free to enter of course, provides a very pleasant area to stroll in.
High security, you'll need to leave most of your belongings when you go in so take the minimum. The toilets are grossly inadequate for the number of visitors, the tours normally give a 10-minute break but be prepared to queue, even for the men.

Galleria Borghese is a must see however it may be difficult to get in. Tickets must be reserved online and spaces sell out quickly.

Fantastic collection of Bernini statues and Carravagio. Booking is essential and can be done online. Allow two hours, although you only get half an hour in the picture gallery.

We went there with pre-booked ticket on free Sunday for time slot 5-7pm. We were permitted to get on the queue. I've seen some people went there without pre-booked ticket (on free Sunday) and were told to go away.
The art works, ceilings and walls are just magnificent
