Borghese Gallery (Rome) & St. Mark Church (Venice) Official Websites

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have searched for a good while the OFFICIAL WEBSITE for those above places

  • Borghese Gallery just can't find an official site (with English) to reserve in advance.  If there is no English site, should I need to call them up and reserve the date/time or asking the hotel to help on this matter?.
  • St. Mark church can't find an official site also.  People advised to reserve the date/time for this place too.

Thank you for your feed back and help.

  • Borghese.  Pardon for my lack of knowledge in tech and Italian, just can't find any place to lead me to reserve the date/time.  
  • St. Mark Basilica link is down but it is in English (so glad).  Will try it later.

Thanks for the links

http://www.galleriaborghese.beniculturali.it/it/pianifica-la-visita/biglietti

Right side of page, click on Aquista ("buy" in Italian)

When the next page opens, scroll down until you see the photos of the museums ("Musei" Italian)

Click on the photo of the Borghese ("Galleria Borghese")

When the next page opens, look on the left for the "Aquista biglietto" tab ("buy ticket" Italian)

When the next page opens, choose your date - it should be self explanatory from there.

FYI: if you use the windows OS, when opening a page in a foreign language, simply right click and choose "translate to English" from the drop down menu.

Good luck

Dogs4fun,

Never too old to learn something new.  Just added Translate into my computer now to help out in the future.

 

Thanks Thanks

Bought tickets in English from Ticketone to Borghese Galleries here:

 

https://www.tosc.it/tickets.htm?affiliate=T2C&sort_by=event_datum&sort_direction=asc&fun=erdetail&doc=erdetaila&erid=912678&language=en

 

Be sure to buy well in advance.  Just returned from Rome in March (not high season) and the Borghese was sold out when we went in with our tickets for several days.  The Borghese collection is spectacular!  Don't miss it!!

Thank you for the advise.  We are monitoring the date and will book as soon it allows to do so.

Or....grazie 😉

 

Have you got the Google translate app on your phone and/or tablet? It works offline as well (without wifi) so that ought to be pretty handy on your trip or while you continue prepping. Many websites do translate (or, Google does it, or whichever browser...) some don't but hopefully you can still navigate pages with this app. As the awesome dogs4fun explained, just knowing a few essential words is enough to complete the transaction for Borghese tickets...uhh, biglietti....(making my three Italian teachers happy there!)

 

I think the app even speaks out loud and has worked well for users...not sure if that works offline (I'm thinking it does so long as your device is charged - bring back-up battery charger!) so that if you find yourself with some old-timers or in a less touristy place, you'll manage. 

 

In some ways Italy is so forward and with the times like all of Europe and other times....I laugh in a way with affection (con affezione) because for a country sooo popular with visitors you'd think websites for attractions would definitely all be, um, adaptable, for global visits? But NO. It's probably on the list of things to do - maybe, but what's the rush? 😄

ChattTenn- 

try Duolingo.com to learn a little Italian (or a lot, if you wish). It is free and very easy to use.  Very highly rated.
