Borghese Gallery & Villa Borghese Questions ??

Jump to last reply

OK, so I confess that I'm confused. I read my 3 Rome travel books, I read the Borghese website, & I did a search here - but I am still confused & I still have lots of questions!

1. Villa Borghese - is this a villa (as in building structure) or a park or both? I've been to the park; is Villa Borghese it's name?

2. I understand what the Borghese Gallery is & how to make reservations & it is a must see. But what are these & are they in the Borghese Gallery? They were listed on the Borghese Gallery website.
Spada Gallery
Consini Gallery
Venezie Gallery
Barberini Gallery
Open Museum of Tredinte (sp)
Palazzo Ducale di Urbino
Rocca Dinaniale di Gradana

3. Anyone been thru the Etruscan Museum? If so, please share.

4. Roma Pass gives discount; plus for other sites. Is it worthwhile? Does it include free use of the bus & metro? Will be in Rome for 8 days & will use the bus & metro & see Palatine Hill, Colosseum, Gallery Borghese, prob. Etrucscan Museum, & others I am sure.

5. One tour book said bus #116 (the mini-bus) goes right up to Borghese Gallery. Is this true in your experience? I don't want to be late.

6. ****Important - what should be our plan of attack during our limited 2 hours in the Borghese Gallery to maximize what we see & to maximize our enjoyment.

7. We want to visit the museum shop. Must that be done within our 2 hours?

8. One tour book said there are boats to rent for the lake. Where is that in the park?

9. To walking tour the park (we just took a few minutes & stayed close to the entrance at Via Veneto), anyone advise a plan? It appears to be very large.

Sorry, but I sure hope I get some answers. Maybe there are others who are confused like me!

Thanks in advance, Julie
