“Unbelievable art and palace.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Very interesting audio tour by a member of the Pamphilj family. The palace is beautiful and the amount and quality of art displayed is mind boggling. I would highly recommend a visit.

“Worth an hour if you are in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

The audio guide (free) was excellent and really made the visit. The rooms are beautiful however most of the room on display cannot be entered - only viewed from the doorway. A lot of artwork, which again can be explained by the audio guide. No photographs allowed but postcards available for purchase. Worth a visit for the decor and story-telling. If you are looking for paintings and sculptures go across to the Capitolini museum - much better.

“a grand collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

This privately owned museum, has an extensive collection of fine paintings, distributed in 4 large hallways and some other rooms, you will be able to enjoy masterpieces with the quieteness of a private house. Generally not overcrowded, which makes your visit a comfortable and silent one, so you can really absorve the ambience of an luxurious roman house and marvellous works of art!

“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

One of the best places to visit in Rome. This 400 year old palace has over 400 paintings and sculptors which include a couple of Caravaggios and a portrait of Pope Innocent X who lived in this palace. A prince who is a decendant still lives here. The rooms are well preserved including the Pope's throne room. Interesting origional furniture is on display. Free audio guide with admission. Tea room on site.

Not be missed if you are in the center of Rome, as it has not only a fantastic collection of art works, enough to fill many museums in a less fortunate country than Italy, but also allows a unique insight into an 18th century palazzo, and the life of luxury which the chosen few could afford at the time. Go, spend a couple of hours away from the bustle of the Eternal City, and you won't regret it.......
