|About these ratings|
A favorite among Roman stop, the Galleria Borghese is half-villa/half-museum, and it has some resplendent gardens too. The villa's extravagant rooms fill with famous pieces, including Canova's Venus Victrix, Bernini's sculptures David and Apollo and Daphne, and Caravaggio's Boy with a Basket of Fruit and David and Goliath, among other masterpieces.
Note that tickets need to be reserved in advance; you're given an entry and exit time, so you should plan to arrive at least 30 minutes early. Sessions are two hours. Also, keep in mind that the Galleria Borghese is closed on Mondays. You'll find it off the Spagna metro stop.
