This gallery is a very impressive building with a huge amount to see, a combination of modern art & old school classical art (all high calibre and well presented). There is an inner garden courtyard with a stunning statue in the middle of it, and fabulous contemporary music piece playing all day that is really peaceful/haunting. The cafe looks terrific...

North of central Rome but within relative easy reach on a beautiful 40 minute walk, this was fantastic. Virtually no-one else there, a superb collection of artworks and a really great uncrowded restaurant. Would highly recommend if you've seen one too many 'putti'.

We went here to see a temporary exhibit, "Secessione e Avanguardia - L'Arte in Italia prima della Grande Guerra 1905 - 1915," which was well done and extensive (15 rooms or so). The museum holds a very large permanent collection of modern and contemporary art focusing on Italian artists, including some favorites of mine such as Renato Guttuso, Giacomo Balla,... More

We walked through borghese gardens from Flaminio metro tat ion but you could actually get a 19 tram right up to it.only criticism is sometimes the route within the gallery can be confusing.. Thoroughly enjoyed exhibition.

Lots of great art here, organized by period and theme. Lots of Italians, including Futurists, Divisionists (and some Fascists), but also some non-Italians, such as Klimt, to provide some context. There's a very nice temporary exhibition now on Italian art before 1915 - definitely worth a visit.

I spent a very happy three hours here. The collections were varied (even though one was closed at the time of my visit), covering a wide range of styles and themes. The first work you see if a massive floor made of cracked mirrors, with some contrasting sculpture on it, which is an impressive start and a suitable opening to... More

A great gallery that is laid out thematically, with a great idea of how work and periods interlink and it has a great flow to it. Also an excellent restaurant. We used our Roma pass to get in for free.

The Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna (GNAM), or National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome was the one main Museum I had dreamed of visiting during my recent trip to Italy. While the cold rain made it difficult, the path to the Museum was bittersweet as the walk from Flaminio Metro was not helped by almost non-existent signage. We had to... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
