After strolling around Monti I somehow ended up at Via del Corso, the shopping area in Rome, and while I was looking around for some caffé, I found myself at the entrance of the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj. I had no idea what kind of museum it was, I just liked the pictures shown at the entrance and the inner courtyard looked so peaceful and beautiful. The ticket bought itself.
Walking through another courtyard and up some stairs I entered the first of the state rooms – Palazzo Doria Pamhilj is still in private ownership and houses the large art collection assembled by the families Doria, Pamphilj, Landi and Aldobrandini starting in the 16th century. Besides the gallery it is possible to visit a part of the apartement and the family chapel.
The Ballroom was probably my personal favourite – I´d love to do some shootings there! (Who wouldn´t?!)
