The basics

Set next to Villa Farnesina on the slopes of Janiculum Hill, Palazzo Corsini and its surrounding estate changed hands repeatedly over the centuries before coming to house the offices of the National Academy of Science and the Galleria Corsini section of the National Gallery of Antique Art. Home to primarily Italian masterpieces, the collection includes showstoppers like Caravaggio's St. John the Baptist, St. Sebastian Healed by Angels by Rubens, and works by Guido Reni, Beato Angelico, and Guercino. Much less known than its sister collection in Palazzo Barberini, Galleria Corsini is an art lover’s dream, with its light crowds and important works.

To fully appreciate Palazzo Corsini’s collection of masterpieces, consider joining a private tour of the National Museum of Ancient Art in the Galleria Corsini that includes skip-the-line tickets and a guide. Some Trastevere walking tours include a stop at the palace to visit the collection and picturesque botanical garden.
