It was a good experience,...
elfloodmsncom, June 2023
It was a good experience, however I think they could have done a better job at identifying the meetup location, which turned out to be a woman holding a flag about a hundred feet from the entrance, with no sign. After not finding an obvious meet point, I thought I'd her, and it turned out to be the right person. But it wasn't obvious.
One of my best Italy experiences - five weeks in the country visiting Venice, Florence, Naples, Rome and more.

If you have any interest in early art this is a "Do Not Miss". It is in my estimation the most beautiful museum that I have ever seen - both the facility and the collection. Do not miss the main large room with the incredible ceiling with paintings that appear to be three dimensional sculptures holding the ceiling up. In the busy season, plan ahead, the museum is frequently fully booked with no drop-in availability. Taxis will drop you off at the front door, making accessibility easy form anywhere in the city.
AnnMarie_B, May 2023
I was thrilled to get tickets through Viator as museum tickets were sold out for the next month. No waiting and I had some rooms all to myself. It was a great experience and worth paying extra for. Instructions were simple for getting my ticket and there was no wait for that, either.
Lovely Museum with a Hick-up
Kathleen_M, Apr 2023
Great gallery with lots of beautiful pieces to see. We booked the tour with the Audio Guide but only 3 out of the 4 of us had a phone with us. We were told once we got there that since we did not have a phone, and had not downloaded the app, we could not join the tour as booked. (This was in fact indicated in the information as sent but it was buried in the information which was disappointing.) It needs to be more prevalent in the booking information.
Stunning palace and art collection
Anthony_C, Apr 2023
The Borghese is a MUST in Rome, but by all means, get tickets ahead of time because it's also mobbed by tourists and they run out of tickets for the day. The timed entries do help and our Viator Tour included an English-speaking guide who was quite informative about the many works of art. Don't forget to tour the garden, for a brief but pleasant walk. Keep in mind the Borghese is nestled into a vast park. Extremely pleasant, and you can sit on the grass/benches afterwards and rest.
Confusing Audio download
Charles_F, Apr 2023
The 2 hour skip the line delivered what it promised. The Viator representative was where he was supposed to be with the tickets. My objection is to the audio download which we paid for with the package, that was confusing and not helpful at all. It would be much better to rent the audio devise available at The museum.
Don’t do audio tour with App
Robin_N, Apr 2023
Audio assisted tour with Popup App was very substandard to guided tour. I would not recommend for anyone trying to comprehend what they were seeing
This museum/gallery has...
Alice_C, Apr 2023
This museum/gallery has appropriate staffing, a bookstore, a cafeteria, beautiful grounds, and a magnificent collection of paintings and sculpture. Viator provided all the directions, timing information, and staff needed for a great experience.
Bad Audio Ap
HJ_H, Apr 2023
Audio guide ap didn’t work and made the tour worse. Definitely needs improvement. First floor of gallery is worth it.
Rodney_M, Apr 2023
Bernini sculptures and Caravaggio paintings in opulent surroundings, not too busy as people were limited to specific viewing times
Great gallery; high premium for booking in advance through Viator
Prasanna_S, Apr 2023
The paintings and the sculptures at the gallery are breathtaking. Definitely a must-see attraction. The gardens aren't great, though. The entrance to the gallery is only 15 euros, but Viator charges more than double the price of the ticket. The only benefit of paying extra is that you can book well in advance of your visit to guarantee admission during peak season.
Incredible Vatican Tour
Zach_B, Apr 2023
Sarafranca, our tour guide was amazing. She led us on a wonderful tour of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapels and St Peter’s Basilica. She was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. One of the best tours I’ve ever been on. I highly recommend.
The audio guide was very poor. It was very confusing, we couldn't find what was being discussed. WE ended up not usin
Carol_B, Apr 2023
It was very poor. I would never recommend it to anyone. We never found the very first item on the guide. we just gave up
Breathtakingly beautiful
Ankita_S, Apr 2023
This was such a great and convenient experience. The audio guide also gives u the opportunity to take your own time while u gaze at the masterpieces.
A must see
chasingbuffalo, Mar 2023
We always visit the Borghese as it is the best in Rome. We also advise to book a ticket in advance so as not to miss out!

Simone_M, Mar 2023
We wanted to visit the Borghese Gallery but didn't know when it would fit into our schedule. We booked this last hour tickets through Viator at the last minute and it was perfect for us and we didn't feel rushed through the museum.
To the rescue!
Abagail_T, Mar 2023
If you want to get in the gallery and the tickets are sold out, try this tour for sure! The price is comparable, and it has the benefits of added information to use as much as you choose plus the ability to go through at your own pace. We recommend!
Debbie_P, Mar 2023
Skip-the-line probably is not necessary at the Borghese, as entries are timed. However, there were more times available through Viator than directly through the museum. Met the rep, got our tickets. All went well.
Save your money -- buy tickets there
Paul_T, Mar 2023
The Borghese is an interesting gallery, but this was a waste of money. The audio guides within the museum are better than a phone and headset. Or, better yet, look for a tour with a guide. No need to buy this ticket. We could have accomplished the same thing buying tickets at the museum itself on the day.
A must see in Rome
Georgiana_P, Mar 2023
Wonderful art! In a superb location. Viator rep met me locally to give me the ticket. Would recommend!
