There are so many treasures inside! Because the arrogance and lack of interest of the employee at the reception we missed the organized tour (ONLY TWICE DAILY) to the third floor where we could see the famous Tuccia by Corradini. Once again the Italian staff did all to spoil a memorable visit.

We came to this museum, which is recently opened its doors after an extensive renovation (not completed to my understanding). It is indeed impressive as it has many treasures, including Rafael and Caravaggio paintings and other impressive staff. The grounds are impressive as well. The audio-guides are available in many languages but it makes sense to take your headphones -... More

This gallery is housed in one of the grand Rome families' palaces. Architectural wonders - including Bernini's and Borromini's, as well as delightful inner fountains and frescoes - abound. The focus is on pre-Renaissance art. Some absolute masterworks, such as Raffaello's Fornarina and Caravaggio's Narcissus. Not to be missed!

A visit to Palazzo Barberini is a must to see the Palazzo build by Pope Urbanus VIII and the magnificent Collection of paintings it contains, especially the Caravaggios. A great experience

I went there when it was under renovations, even without being able to go to the gallery, the entrance, the path to the gardens, and the garden itself is magical. You can feel part of the story of the place when you are inside that walls. There are so many things and places to go in rome that sometimes is... More

I just stayed there, sitting on the floor and looking up the ceiling. It's just wonderful moment lost in the beauty.

Quite far away from the most popular paths of tourists. Very well known artists' paintings; history of Barberini's family and of their sixteenth century Palace

We found Palazzo Barberini a tad by accident. It was off season and therefore wonderful. We don't like crowds in galleries. And this palazzo turned national treasure was a calm respite. Raphael's La fornarina is the draw. But our favorite was Caravaggio's version of Judith Beheading Holofernes. He must have really bugged her... On the same street as the palazzo,... More

Was lucky enough to attend a conference here and the venue was spectacular. Worth the visit and a bit off the beaten path. Check out the garden in the back if you have the chance, and don't forget to look up at the beautiful frescos on the ceilings.

I went here mostly to see Raphael's La Fornarina but was pleasantly surprised at all the amazing other works. Worth the visit and you can buy a combo ticket for entrance to the Villa Corsini for 9 euro that is good for 3 days.

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
