The Doria Pamphilj Gallery is a large art collection housed in the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj in Rome, Italy, between Via del Corso and Via della Gatta. The principal entrance is on the Via del Corso (until recently, the entrance to the gallery was from the Piazza del Collegio Romano). The palace façade on Via del Corso is adjacent to a church, Santa Maria in Via Lata. Like the palace, it is still privately owned by the princely Roman family Doria Pamphili. Tours of the state rooms often culminate in concerts of Baroque and Renaissance music, paying tribute to the setting and the masterpieces it contains.

This is an impressive palazzo, however the abundance of art on the walls was overwhelming. It was very hard for me to appreciate what I was seeing. Some of the art had special audio description (from hand held audio tour device).

Arrived into the palace to see some beautiful orange and lemon trees in a courtyard so I was already intrigued. The inside is gorgeous and has some amazing art, reminds me of the frick museum in NYC!

it faced the Piazza Navona. Entrance is the other side.You can find paintings and arts of Daria family and Pamphilj family (after their marriage) One of the Pamphilj family member served as a Pope. There are some famous Paintings but the better ones are in Genoa.If you have timeyou can visit this place

It is still a privately owned, and lived in, residence of the Doria Pamphili family. (Don't ask me why the spelling of the family name and the palace is different.) It houses a very large collection of paintings, furniture and statuary that has been assembled since the 16th century by the Doria, Pamphilj and Aldobrandini families. The individual collections have all been amalgamated through marriage. The collection is displayed in state rooms, the chapel (complete with mummified corpse of the family saint), in four gilded and painted galleries surrounding a courtyard, and other rooms from the older part of the palace. The collection is arranged floor-to-ceiling. There are many important artists represented, including quite a few Flemish artists. Some of the better known are Raphael, Titian, Velasquez, Parmigianino, Brueghel the Elder and Garofalo. There are a few Bernini sculptures. The collection has a number of works by Caravaggio. Perhaps the highlight is an "Annunciation" by Filippo Lippi. The most stunning room is the Hall of Mirrors lined with statues and mirrors. The visit includes a free audioguide with the information on the state rooms provided by one of the family members and includes his memories of growing up in the palace. There is a café for that well-deserved afternoon tea.

Probably the best thing we’ve seen in Rome, not too crowded and a fantastic audio guide by the Prince himself

This Palace, located a few hundred meters from Piazza Venezia, is one of the best examples of post Renaissance opulence in Rome today. Still owned and inhabited by the Doria-Pamphilij family, this magnificent 1000 room palace offers visitors a unique opportunity to see how nobility lived in the 17th and 18th century in Europe. Even more impressive about the exhibit are the revelations it holds of the temporal power of the Pope, having been the property of Pope Innocent X. This is an exhibit easily able to be appreciated by anyone and houses several beautiful works of arts by a few famous artists and sculptors, but the true beauty is revealed with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide.

A wonderful palace and art museum in the heart of Rome. Be sure to get the free audio tour.

I stumbled upon this Gallery by accident and it is stunning. The audio guide is very helpful. While other Roman sites were busy and crowded, this place was uncrowded, spatious and naturally lit. I loved it!
Fredrik Björkeroth | May 5, 2018
Beautiful rooms, art and sculptures. The audio guide is by the current head of the Pamphilj family, and is both informative and personal. Get it!

Great display of art in the heart of Rome. Its easy to walk past this huge palace along via del corso. Entry includes a free listening tour.

Very nice place to visit. Full of masterpieces worthing the visit. Price is not so cheap (€12) but you'll have the chance to breath 1700 -1800 roman air

Wonderful pallazzo. Feels unreal when you are in the galleries. Don't miss the caffe as well

Wonderful place to visit in Rome. Architecture, history and art. Maybe not ideal for small children. Small but nice gift shop.

The art collection is in the natural position where it was ordered, first two story high audience room is covered completly bottom - top with paintings in all usable space. Collection of Pamphilli was later merged with Doria and Aldobrandini. Marble busts of important familly members decorate rooms but the most repeating in number and importance is Innocent X the pope, whose Vellasquez portrait is the masterpiece of the collection, deserving a separate room. The pope is almost vividly present with strong and powerfull gaze, but somehow the above light doesnt give good reflection for photos, i would like the darker ambient with lid painting. Among lot of landscape motives there's a number of interesting paintings by Jan Brueghel the Elder, (one by more famous Peter) which i liked. There's a nice mirrorr hall decorated with roman statues - audio guide says there were "completed" in 18. century with missing parts, so are not completely genuine. The other, large roman marble room, had a terrible accident in 1980-ties when roof collapsed and broke to pieces most of the statues collection so they were painstakingly restorated. Audio guide is excellent, but some interesting marbles and pictures are not explained neither on the audio nor text description which was a pitty.

Great palace with amazing art and a compelling story presented by a superior audio guide. Missing one star due to the lighting of some of the paintings.
Jessie Ye | Jul 6, 2018
Out of all the places we visited in Rome, which included the Colosseum and Vatican, this was my favourite place. It has an astounding amount of carefully curated and annotated Renaissance art pieces. The palace itself is also very well preserved, and walking through it was an absolute joy. I highly recommend going through it with the free audio guide.

Amazing palace full of great art. I was walking down Via del Corso street with my wife when we found this palace. We decided to take the chance and go in. I have to tell you I am very glad that we took the chance. I wish we had more time but unfortunately we where only 45 minutes before they close. Next time I am in Rome I will definitely visit the palace again. This palace is full of art and it’s a masterpiece. From the first step you place inside you will definitely feel that you have discovered a treasure box full of art.

Amazing artwork here. Some really famous works here. Audioguide is a must. The architecture is very nice as well.
Matei Zamfirescu | Jun 30, 2018
Was surprised to find such a delightfully expressed audiguide. Really kept me interested and made the entire experience worth it.

Amazing place. Art gallery in still vivid family house in the heart of Rome. Amazing experience, both for palazzo's interiors and amount of artpieces located inhouse. Very imaginative history. Must see!
David OMalley | Jul 12, 2018
My favorite gallery in Rome; it is small, intimate, lavishly decorated and full of world-class art. It is over-looked enough so as not to be too crowded, you might even get some good photos of the corridors free of people, a rarity in Rome! The collection is well annotated and an audio guide is provided, but the real joy is just soaking in all the beauty. The courtyard also is quite nice.
Hila Barnir | Jul 13, 2018
Went around 10 am in a group of three, and was absolutely stunned by the lack of crowds. We didn't see any other people until going through the museum for 15 minutes. It was quiet and beautiful as well as the free English audio guides adding such a history to everything. Some stunning pieces, and really makes you feel like you're part of living history.
lauren krukowski | Jul 15, 2018
This was a fantastic experience! The palazzo is beautiful and full of interesting art and history. The audio guide is narrated by one of the family members which adds an interesting perspective. This does not seem to be very well known by international tourists however and we the had the place nearly to ourselves at middday during the week in July. Highly recommended!!! There’s also a beautiful looking cafe inside though we did not stay.
