The basics

The sumptuous Palazzo Doria Pamphilj comprises apartments of the aristocratic Pamphilj family, as well the Doria Pamphilj Gallery—one of Italy’s most prestigious private art collections. To breeze past the crowds and fully enjoy the palace’s history, book a guided tour with skip-the-line admission. Tours offer a glimpse into the life of Roman nobility and typically visit the palace ballroom, chapel, and apartments, which overflow with historic paintings and sculptures.

If you are a music fan, opt for a private tour of the palace that includes a classical music concert or opera performance inside the baroque halls.

I was shocked by the paintings/ masters here!!
We have seen a lot in Rome but this audio guided tour has been a favorite. I love that it’s not packed. Worth a visit for sure.

The Gallery was very interesting. The paintings on the walls, the painted ceilings, the sculptures, and even the floors were all a very enjoyable experience.

Tips for using these tickets

Doria Pamphilj Gallery Audio Guided Tour
This gallery is absolutely amazing, and the audio tour helped us understand and appreciate the story of the family that owns it. It is narrated by a member of the family (descendants of a pope) who apparently still lives there. Obtaining these tickets is a bit confusing, so let me explain the steps: 1-Pay in the Viator app or website (the app is very good) 2-You'll get a message saying to go to an address about 1/2 mile from the gallery to pick up the actual tickets. Here's the first tip: you don't have to do this. Just go have a Campari someplace and wait for step 3. 3-Eventually (it was about 12-18 hours later for me), you'll get one email for each ticket. In that email is a link that will say something like "bigliettoA4-123456.pdf". That appears to be a file, but it's actually a link to Viator.com. 4-I found that when I clicked it on my phone, it opened the Viator app but didn't show me the actual tickets. Here's the second tip: do one of these: a-open the email on a computer rather than a phone, which will then put the ticket in your download folder, from which you can print it. a-forward the emails to your hotel concierge and let him/her print the tickets. c-on your phone, press and hold the link until you get a menu from which you can open it with a browser rather than the Viator app. 5. Show up at the gallery, not the address in step 2 and show them the ticket. You'll be directed to a turnstile where you can scan it for entry without having to go to the ticket office. None of this is difficult but it took a bit to figure out. Enjoy the gallery! It's great.

Walking tour inside the Doria Pamphilj
Jim_M, Sep 2021
The Doria Pamphilj Gallery reserved entrance
This was one of the best tours we took because it was self-guided once we were in the apartments. An audio guide was included. There was a time frame but it was enough time to see most everything. The art collection itself was worth the price of admission.

Highlights of the Doria Pamphilj Gallery

Some of the collection's most famous pieces include a portrait of Pope Innocent X by Velázquez and two busts of the same pope, created by Bernini. Giovanni Battista Pamphilj reigned as Pope Innocent X from 1644 to 1655, so in addition to portraits and busts in his honor, the palace has a papal Throne Room, an addition reserved for royal palaces or papal residences. The lavish Gallery of Mirrors is one of the most famous rooms in the palace and includes frescoes depicting the Labors of Hercules.
