Weekday vs Weekend

  • Weekdays: Visiting during the week is recommended as there are fewer crowds. Try to visit shortly after the gallery opens for a peaceful viewing experience.
  • Weekends: The Borghese Gallery sees a large number of tourists during the weekends, so it is ideal to choose a time slot during the weekdays to avoid crowds. Please avoid booking slot 11 AM as it is the most popular slot and the gallery will be packed.








Very Crowded

Peak season vs Low season

  • Peak season (June to September): It's generally more crowded during the summer months as it is holiday season. You will find tourist attractions to be more crowded than usual and also higher hotel prices.
  • Lean season (November to March): The best time to visit Rome is during this period. You can expect cold weather and occasional rain but lesser crowds. Another good time to visit and avoid crowds is from October through November, during the seasonal transition to autumn/onset of winter.
