A true jewel of Baroque Rome, the stunning Colonna Gallery houses one of the largest private art collections in Italy, with jaw-dropping works from heavyweights like Caracci, Bronzino, and Guercino. The gallery is housed inside the Palazzo Colonna, which is just as much a work of art as the treasures it contains. The building features lavish frescoes and beautifully detailed apartments you can explore for yourself – it's time to really get into art!
Stepping into the Colonna Gallery is like stepping into a Baroque painting, with intricate gilded details and magnificent frescoes as far as the eye can see. The palace has been home to the noble Colonna family for over 20 generations, and their collection is like a greatest-hits compendium of the masters of Italian art.
Bask in the panoramic glory of the Hall of Landscapes, lined with the rural compositions of Gaspard Dughet and magnificent marble columns, then take in the Hall of the Apotheosis of Martin V with its giant ceiling canvas by Benedetto Luti. The Chapel features originals by Paolo Farinati, the Tapestry Room intricate woven designs from the early 1600s.
And that's just a taster of the artistic treasures you'll discover inside the palace. You can even explore Princess Isabelle's perfectly preserved apartment and gawp at the stunning Versailles-styled interior, with masterpieces and hidden details on every surface.
