Visit the Barberini Palace with Rome Accueil: Caravaggio, Raphael, Le Bernin, Borromini, in French!


If the walls could speak, those of the Barberini Palace would tell the stories of the biggest Italian stars of the 17th Century!

Built under the pontificate of Urban VIII, the palace contains architectural treasures mixed with a family history running for more than three centuries!

Rome Francophone followed the visit organized by the association “Rome Accueil” and commented in French by Francesca Barberini, official guide in Rome and descendant of the Barberini family.

Here we share some key moments in video, but there’s a lot more to see! Sold to the Italian state in 1949, the Barberini Palace has indeed become the National Gallery of Ancient Art, and presents masterpieces by Caravaggio, Raphael, Le Tintoretto, Piero di Cosimo, Giovanni Baglione…

The 12 euro ticket also gives you access within 10 days to the Corsini Gallery, where the other part of the collection of ancient art is on display.

Rome Francophone remercie chaleureusement les « Gallerie Nazionali Barberini Corsini » pour leur accueil, et bien sûr, «   (opens in a new tab)” xhtml:href=”” xhtml:target=”_blank”>Rome Accueil Don’t hesitate to sign up for the next tours organized by the association!
