The Gallery's Attendance
Book your ticket, it's mandatory!
It is mandatory to book a ticket to visit the Borghese Gallery. You can do it here. If you’re a holder of “Roma pass” and want to use your free entrance to visit the Gallery - you must book the visit by phone: +39 06 32810. Use the same phone number to book your visit for the first Sunday of a month (free admission for all visitors).
You should plan in advance and request a reservation at least a week in advance in order to secure a place. As the reservation is mandatory and the number of visitors is limited there are no waiting lines!
Tips for your visit
Admission is strictly reduced to 360 people every 2 hours. There are five time slots you can choose from: 9:00-11:00, 11:00-13:00, 13:00-15:00, 15:00-17:00, 17:00-19:00. You’re expected to come to the museum about half an hour before the entrance time, in order to pass security check and leave bags in the cloakroom if needed (it’s free of charge). You won’t be able to stay more than 2 hours, at the end of your time slot you’ll be asked to leave the Gallery.
The most popular time slot is 11:00, to get inside at this time you should book your place about 2 weeks in advance. The last (17:00-19:00) and the midday (13:00-15:00) ones are less popular, booking one week before should be enough.
For the Gallery’s visit, we advise you to take the audio-guide and to start your visit from the first floor to avoid crowds as most tourists and groups will start the visit from the ground floor.
If all tickets are already sold out for the day you are in Rome - you can come to the Gallery anyway and try your luck: in the case of no-shows you’ll be able to get a ticket. During low season it is also possible to buy a ticket at the Gallery for the closest slot available (if there are remaining places).
