One of the main attractions in Rome is the local museum called Galleria Borghese. Some say the museum is a city in itself. It is a place worth seeing. Inside a magnificent 400 year old villa, there are 20 rooms with collections of antiquities and baroque art. An ancient building with ancient collections; the place is bound to impress from the start till the end.
