Tour description

The Colonna Palace is a real jewel of Baroque art in Rome's historic city center. Construction of the palace started in the 16th century and lasted for over five hundred years- for this reason Colonna Palace features several architectural styles. The story of the Colonna family has ancient origins too, and dates back to the 12th century. Your expert guide will tour you through several rooms over two floors of the palace and illustrate this history through tales and anecdotes about this important family. Upon request, it is also possible to extend your tour with special access to Princess Isabella’s apartments, that have been preserved exactly how they were when the Princess was still alive. Continue your tour with a visit to Doria Pamphilj Palace, the colossal, 1000-room family seat, which dates from 1505 and is among the most treasure-filled palaces in Europe, famous for its beautiful inner courtyard and its elegant Renaissance arches. Said to be nearly two-thirds the size of St. Peter’s Basilica, the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj may well be the largest private residence in Italy. It also houses one of the nation’s most important private art collections, with over 650 works, including masterpieces by Raphael, Caravaggio, Titian, and Velázquez. The Doria Pamphilj clan—whose family tree includes the renowned Genoese admiral Andrea Doria and Giovanni Battista Pamphilj, who reigned as Pope Innocent X from 1644 to 1655—is one of just a handful of Rome’s ancient princely families who have survived with their palazzi, fortunes, and staggering art collections intact.
