This Gallery has numerous "school of Caravaggio" paintings which we viewed briefly. The main attraction is the Perspectives Gallery which was interesting and clever. The courtyard is lovely and quiet. A nice stop if you're near the Campo and like architectural puzzles.

We visited the gallery only to see Borromini’s perspective. As the corridor is blocked with a barrier, you cannot walk through and experience how long it is actually, how tall the statue at the end is, etc. It was a big disappointment. There was a...More

The place is small but worth seeing. Inside you have nice art and then outside you can see Borromini’s masterpiece!

Small gallery in palace of Spada, nice paintings and the Francesco Borromini perspective colonnade. Worth visiting it.

The museum itself is small and nice - interesting to a certain extent - and yes, once you're in Rome, one gets of course easily spoiled after the enormous amount of art collections and paintings in all the musea. Worth the trip (small fee, kids...More

Is the perfect time to visit this galleria as it is free to all. This very beautiful ornate palazzo houses some absolutely stunning art, not a big exhibit however quality beats quantity every time. Also Borromini’s forced perspective gallery is rather impressive.

We stumbled across the most beautiful palace in Rome, the sixteenth century Palazzo Capodiferro and were just taken aback by the stucco work on the façade and the courtyard, visible from the street. The Gallery itself is on the first floor and contains Baroque paintings...More

This gallery is pretty small, with only 4 rooms of painting of sculpture, but the pieces displayed are certainly worth a visit to see. This isn't necessarily a museum I would prioritize for a first visit to Rome, but one which I definitely enjoyed at...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
