The Palazzo Barberini is something of a hidden gem. The architecture itself is worth seeing, It was originally built as a sort of urban estate for the Sforza family. Several noted architects worked on it, including Bernini. The collection is really more Renaissance than "antique"....More

That's right! It's the 1st Sunday of the month so it was free. Ok it's not the Pitti Palace but I don't think anywhere is. Still it's not bad. It was raining so we needed a good place to go and we hadn't explored this...More

I'm not sure why my Rick Steves guide to Rome didn't mention this museum. It has a wonderful collection of medieval and renaissance paintings. Caravaggio's "Judith Beheading Holofernes" alone is reason enough to go. What adds to the loveliness is that very few people are...More

It would be easy to jump to the conclusion that the art on display at this gallery is the art from the antique period 2000 years ago; really it is European (mostly Italian) from the renaissance to the mid-1800s. There are some nice pieces and...More

What I liked is a good selection of pictures. There are not so many of them, but you have an opportunity to take your time and enjoy each picture (Corovaggio, Rafael, the florentine paintings).

This museum has some great artwork as well as beautiful architecture. We were surprised by the staff, however. In the many galleries and museums we have visited here in Rome, the staff has been very courteous and helpful. The person at the ticket desk here,...More

We didn’t visit until after we’d seen the Vatican Museums and the Capitoline Museums so we were probably getting a bit blasé about Raphaels and Caravaggios but it’s still a very impressive gallery. Unlike most of the sights in Rome it’s actually near to a...More

This is a large gallery so be prepared to perhaps get a little lost at times. We were sad to find that certain areas were closed due to a shortage of staff as it was low season. However, we did manage to see all that...More

At times stunning and at times pedestrian, this museum has some awesome paintings and ceilings to marvel at. However, it is not air conditioned and the windows are kept closed to protect the art which leaves a stale air environment. We ventured to the second...More

A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is
all about action. From early morning through the wee
