Borghese Gallery and Museum reserved tickets

by KEH

First I must say thank you to everyone for answering my multitude of questions. Leics, you are a wealth of information.
My new question is about tickets for Borghese Gallery. I went online to reserve and I could not find any tickets for August. Do they only put out a limited number at a time? If so how far in advance do they offer the tickets? If I visit mid August, when should I go online to get the tickets? Also, is there a place I can prepay for the tickets so I do not have to wait in the line to pick up the reserved tickets? If so is it a lot more expensive? or maybe the line isn't that long and I should not bother?
Thanks again!

Thank you.

There are limited numbers of tickets per day.....maybe they just haven't put the August dates up yet (still 3 months away after all). I doubt they are sold out.

You could always try to buy the tickets through an agency such as www.tickitaly.com They may charge a bit of commission (not a huge amount) but at least you would then know if a) you can buy tickets now for August and b) whether they can send them to you or whether all reserved tickets have to be picked up at the Galleria. You will certainly have to pay in advance if you use an agency....but you can find all this out before you actually finalise the transaction, of course, just by going through the booking process.

As I understand it tickets for the Galleria are timed, so if you do decide to pick them up you will have to allow extra time for any potential queues (or pick them up the day before you visit). No-one can possibly tell you how long the queue will be at any particular time on any particular day, but Auguat is the middle of the high season......

Having checked-out the Galleria ticket reserbvation system seems they are only on sale up to 30th June (2months ahead, more or less)

So, logically, if you look atthe site during the middle of June you will be able to get tickets for the middle of August.

Most ticket sites will only take reservations for a limited period in advance: a software thing, I assume.

I was in Rome last August and was easily able to get tickets that day for the gallery just by stopping at the ticket window. I had to wait a few hours for my appointed entry time but there was plenty to keep my busy while I waited.

If you reserve your tickets with the borghese gallery and get there a half hour before the entrance time you won't have to wait in much of a line. We have never had a problem with the ticket line it is the line to check your bags that gets really long. I would suggest you just reserve your tickets (only 2 months in advance), check your bags, pick up your tickets and then have a coffee while you wait for the doors to open. They only let in 250 people at a time every 2 hours so you will want to be there early to get checked in and be ready when the doors open. If you reserve through a company like ticketitaly they will charge you a fee and I am not sure they can mail you tickets early. In my opinion you don't need to do this. They will release tickets as the time gets closer and you can pick the time you wish to visit the gallery.


Travel Tips for Rome


by arkadia


Piazza di Spagna is one of the most caracteristiques squares in town. 270 meters, divided in 2 triangular areas. The square takes its name from the PALAZZO DI SPAGNA, seat since the 17th century of the Spanish ambassador to the Holy See. It’s famous for it’s magnificent buildings, elegant shops, and for the illustrious personages who stayed here in the past.

The Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti (or the Spanish steps) leads to the equally famous Piazza di Trinità dei Monti with the Sallustian obelisk.
The theatrical effect of these famous steps and their powerful evocative quality is part of the history of the image of the city.
It was built entirely in travertine by Francesco De Sanctis, between 1723 and 1726.

Stadio Olimpico

by Henrik_rrb

Stadio Olimpico in Rome is the second biggest stadium in Italy (after San Siro in Milan). It was built for the Olympic Games that were held in the city in 1960, and then heavily rebuilt for the World Cup in football in 1990.

The stadium is built in a "circle" with the curves on the short side of the stadium. Curva Nord holds the Lazio hardcore, while Curva Sud is for Roma supporters.

Tribuna Monte Mario is the west stand, where they have the VIP-seats, press tribune and the more expensive tickets.

On the other side you'll find Tribuna Tevere, still great seats, but a bit cheaper.

Away supporters are located on the same side as Tribuna Monte Mario, at the start of the curva.

There is normally a bit of a problem to find your right seat, as it doesn't says the same on the ticket as it says in the stadium... So try go ask one of the stewards, and he/she will show you where your sit is. Or just ask any in the crowd that looks like he/she knows what they are talking about.

Stadio Olimpico holds 82 000 spectators, and was used as the final venue of both the Euro 1980 and the World Cup 1990. During the 1990s there were also a Champions League-final played here, and in 2008 the final will once again be held here. It's one of the stadiums in Europe that Uefa rank with 5*.

Outside the stadium there is a park, and then an old stadium with running tracks. The tracks are surrounded with beautiful statues in white marble.

When you up to the stadium from the Tiber river you'll pass the Olympic committee and the old, pink, building that were used for the Olympics in 1960. The stadium is a bit far away from the city center, but it's easy to get there with metro, bus or tram.
I normally take the metro to "Ottaviano" (the same stop as for going to the Vatican state). When getting up, cross the street to the right, and then take bus number 12. It will stop just 200 meters from the stadium, outside the pink buildings I wrote about above.

Problem is after the game when it's really crowded and there are less busses. I have many times walked back to Ottaviano by foot, but it's quite far and it takes about 45 minutes-1 hour if you walk pretty quickly. Better to use the busses from Piazza Mancini in that case (see below)

You can also take the metro to Flaminio, and from there take a bus to Piazza Mancini (should most probably stand on the bus window). From the piazza you just follow the crowd up to the stadium. First you go about 500 meters until you reach the Tiber river, and then cross the street, and you'll see the stadium in front of you.

Bus 910 goes from Mancini to Termini (thanks Cassie! ;) )

Remember the new security rules for seeing football in Rome, so get your ticket a couple of days in advance, and go to the stadium early as it will take you forever to get inside with all the new controls... The earlier you get there, the less crowded and hectic it will be too!


by lowss about Restaurant

Have a taste of their spaghetti, ;agsane, capuccino, cheese cake, pizza and etc. Almost every corner you can find a little cafe or restaurant. Itliano eat their dinner after 8 which makes some of the restaurant close rather late. The spaghetti in every restaurant taste different and is really delicious and scrumptious.

Great restaurant in Rhome

by jmbrink about Rhome

Beautifull stylish restaurant in Rome serving the best food I ever had.

rHome; a new restaurant, which has already become a classic, has been intended to express the never declining Roman traditions in a modern form.

Located on a strategic position in the Italian capital, Piazza Augusto Imperatore, rHome is a modern and innovative restaurant in its exterior and interior design but also in culinary aspects.The name of the restaurant is a fusion between Rome and Home, highlighting that rHome wants to be fully integrated with the city and its traditions but at the same time be warm and inviting as a Home. Italian style Sushi

Very good meat places in Rome

by abarbieri about Beef and dal Toscano

All restaurants must have the menu shown outside and in Rome those within the Aurelian Walls should have it in English too. Unfortunately many places do not apply to this rule.
Cover charge has been abolished in 2006. Bread has a cost and it should be written on the menu. Only few restaurants in Rome do charge extra for the service (10-15%) and again it has to be written on the menu.If not it means that it is included but you might still want to leave a little tip for the good waiter.

T-Bone station on via crispi is ok but please stay away from the Roadhouse at Termini.
The following place is considered by many the best meat place in Rome but the location is not very central:

Beef (only dinner, closed Sundays)
Via Basento 54

I still like an old school place near the Vatican:
Dal Toscano di Pietro Bruni (lunch and dinner, closed Mondays)
Via Germanico 58

I wish you all the best!!
Antonio Grilled T-Bone or Fillet steak possibly from Chianina quality
