Tips To Make The Most Of Your Borghese Gallery Visit
- Tickets for Borghese Gallery sell out rapidly, especially since there is a limited number of tourists that are allowed inside at one time. Book your Borghese Gallery tickets online at least two weeks in advance to avoid facing a sold out situation.
- Since you're allowed only two hours from the time stamped on your ticket during entry, a fair bit of planning is required to ensure that you experience all of Borghese Gallery. One way to do that is by heading straight for the first floor since most people explore the ground floor first.
- Arrive at the Borghese Gallery at least 45 minutes before your time slot. If you have any baggage, you'll need to check it in in the locker room located in the basement and that does take a lot of time depending on how crowded the day generally is.
- The third floor of the museum is now also open to visitors. There's an additional €2 booking fee you need to pay to gain access to this floor. Please note that the Deposits are open only via guided tours on Wednesday and Saturday at 3:30 PM and the ticket does not include access to the rest of the Borghese Gallery.
- Plan your trip to the Borghese Gallery around the evening. This will give you the opportunity of enjoying Borghese gardens and the Pincio Terrace during sunset and witness some truly spectacular views of the Rome skyline.
- The Villa Borghese gardens are spread across almost 300 acres of land and feature different levels and installations. To make the most of your time there, get a map of the gardens before the start of the trip. This will not only help you navigate the gardens but also allow you to head to attractions you're more interested in.
- There are limited public toilets available in the Villa Borghese gardens and if you happen to visit during a crowded day, you might have to wait a bit for your turn. Avoid waiting by using the toilet located at the Borghese Gallery, access to which is included in your ticket.
