Beautiful works and well cared for. Museum art guards were also nice. Cafeteria, yet pricey, has good food. Bathroom was reserved for only those who had tickets, so it was clean. Also, only a couple hundred people are allowed in a day, so it is not busy and you get some alone time with every piece. Buy tickets early

Incredible Collection of sculptures, paintings and frescos. The close contact with the Art Works is especially fascinating

Buy your ticket before you leave home - esp. during the busy season. The artwork in this museum is absolutely breathtaking! I've been to Rome a few times and this is one of my favourite places. Looking at the Bernini sculptures is like looking at breathing marble. It's hard to believe that it's cold stone - the statues are so life-like, esp. the Rape of Persephone, one of the most awe-inspiring pieces of art that I've ever seen (next to David.)

I never thought I was interested in art. Galleria Borghese turned me into art enthusiast. I could not get enough.

Breathtaking exhibit. The same can be said for their restrooms. There is no excuse for the terrible condition and quality of maintenance. They should be ashamed to expose their patrons to such an unacceptable experience.
