Default Re: Europe travel question

Grea, I've just come back from Rome and I have to tell you that whatever else you do or don't see, the Villa Borghese is an absolute Must. We'd always intended to go but never got round to it, and it's so good that we're going to go again every time we visit Rome. It's a gallery of renaissance and slightly later paintings and sculptures, with a number of Caravaggios and Berninis - absolutely breathtaking stuff.

You have to book your ticket in advance, you can't just pitch up on the day, but really and truly it is gobsmacking. We like it better than any other gallery we've ever been to, including the National Gallery and the Louvre.
