Rooms of Ignatius

The rooms where St. Ignatius wrote the Constitutions of the Society of Jesus and directed its early growth have been restored. They can be visited from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m.; they are open to the public during those hours. They are located at Piazza del Gesù; the entrance is just to the right of the church as you face it.

Mass is celebrated every 45 minutes in the Gesù.

Information about the Vatican.

Borghese Gallery

The Borghese Gallery is a very nice museum and palazzo which is open on Tuesday through Sunday with entrance from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is also the only museum where you have to make a reservation ahead of time. The reason for this is the fact that only groups of 50 people at a time are admitted. You can either phone to: 00-39-06-32810 and, when a tape in Italian starts transmitting dial 2 for the English speaking operator, or try to fax to their number: 00-39-06-32651329.
