|Courtyard - hard to believe this is off via del Corso|
|Bagno di Diana|
You now enter through a lush courtyard and are taken immediately to a previously inaccessible, exquisite "bath" - "bagno di Diana" - built by Prince Filippo Andrea V for his British bride, Mary Talbot.
|A family room (!) Space for foosball--or soccer.|
Via del Corso, 305 (first block after Piazza Venezia), open 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. every day except Christmas, New Year's, and Easter. In other words, it's often open when other galleries are not. At 11 Euros not cheap, but you get your money's worth. There's now a nice cafe in the palazzo as well.
There is more information on the Web site: http://www.doriapamphilj.it/ukhome.asphttp://www.doriapamphilj.it/ukhome. There are concerts held here at times too.
Worth a visit the second time, or even a third, or fourth or more.

and Aldobrandini, and bought a whole lot of art
