Tripadvisor gives a Travellers’ Choice award to accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently earn great reviews from travellers and are ranked within the top 10% of properties on Tripadvisor.
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.

Good audio guide with text spoken by a member of the family Doria Pamhilij. Makes the experience very personal. Unfortunately the palace is currently scaffolded, you cannot appreciate from the outside. I was almost alone inside!

This is an amazing palazzo/museum! The interactive portable guide is great, you learn a lot but it’s not overwhelming. So many beautiful and interesting paintings, many from the Netherlands. And, of course, Caravaggio and others. Also liked the cafe Doria, good for a aperitivo!

I visited here in August 2021 and although not all areas were open (second floor was not opened when I visited) it is still an amazing gallery to visit.

I booked my tickets in advance and arrived 15 minutes before my time slot (6pm) began. The gates were closed when I arrived but they opened and we were allowed in just before 6pm. Your visit is limited to a 2 hour time slot.

There is a free audio guide provided to you when you begin the tour. The halls, the paintings and the sculptures are all incredible and make for a great visit.

This is one of my favourite places in Rome and a hidden gem. The palace is small but filled with beautiful works of art by Raphael, Tintoretto, Caravaggio, Velazquez, Flemish artists and Carracci and a lovely courtyard. There are two floors but sadly we paid full price (15 Euros) and the second floor was under restoration so we could not access it (Lippi’s Annunciation is housed there). Nevertheless, I would strongly recommend a visit when in Rome.

Amazing art gallery in one of the palaces still privately owned (by Doria Pamphilj family).
Pamphilj family gave a pope in 1644 - pope Innocent X; this pallazzo was the reason sidence of Camillo Pamphili, the Pope's nephew, who was appointed cardinal-nephew for a while, the renounced to marry Olimpia Aldobrandini.
The pallazzo is very beautiful, you will find there a nice collection of Caravaggio, Tiziano, Velasquez, lots of sculptures (including Bernini). All in one, a highly recommended visit.

The tour takes 1.5 hours.
The museum is open fot visits only Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday (as it is still a private house).
The tickets can be bought only with pre-reservation + pay on internet - 16eur per person. Also, when you make the reservation, you have to choose a time slot (starting with 10.00, every 2 hours).

I recently visited this gem and was really glad I did. I’ve walked this route many times and never noticed this until i looked up new places and things to do and see. During covid times this place was nearly empty. Which was better for me. I would definitely recommend if you have the time .

The interiors and art collection are spectacular, but this place would do well to improve the visitor experience. For comparison, the management should pay a visit to Colonna Palace where I had a fantastic visitor experience (efficient ticket office, free water to quench thirst, knowledgable guides who were friendly, and no time limit to see the palazzo).

Instead, my visit to Palazzo Doria Pamphilj was rushed, the security guards were telling everyone to leave at the end of the timeslot before everyone had a chance to see everything properly.

If having timeslots like this was an attempt to deal with coronavirus, this doesn't make sense at all as everyone arrived at the same appointment time, and everyone queued at the ticket office, then started in the first room at the same time, then tried to make their way through the whole visit in the timelimit. Why have a time limited slot, why not just open for a free flow of people to make the visitor experience better and let people take as long as they need?

The Doria Pamphilj Gallery is on the main street of Corso in the heart of Rome. It is a family home that has an upstairs world class art gallery. We were in Rome before the pandemic and the gallery was nearly empty. The audio guide is a gem because it is narrated by the family's current prince. The gallery consists of works by Velazquez, Raphael and Titian. The hall of mirrors has a feeling of Versailles.

Visited on a Friday afternoon; it was quite empty. Several lovely pieces by the Candle Master in their collection. Viewing the family apartments is worth the extra two euro. The audio guide is included and narrated by one of the family members. This is the best place I visited in Rome, even better than Gallery Borghese!
