  • Borghese Gallery: Private Tour

    8. Borghese Gallery: Private Tour

    Skip the long lines to one of Rome’s most popular museums on a guided tour of the Museo e Galleria Borghese (Borghese Gallery). Housed in a stunning villa just outside Porta Pinciana, the collection has been described as the “queen of all private art collections.” One of the most interesting, charming, elegant and compact art museums in Rome, the collection is not arranged chronologically. Instead, it is a lovingly matched collection that reveals the personalities and tastes of 2 people: Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the greatest of the Baroque artists; and Scipione Cardinal Borghese, the greatest art collector, who initiated the Roman Baroque. Highlights of the museum include Raffaello's “Woman with the Unicorn,” Domenichino's “Diana,” Botticelli's “Madonna and Child,” and Caravaggio's “David.” You can also marvel at Bernini's “Apollo and Daphne,” Canova's “Paolina,” and Tiziano's “Amor Sacro...

Housed in a stunning villa just outside the Porta Pinciana, the collection has been described as the “Queen of all Private Art Collections.” One of the most interesting, charming, elegant and compact art museums in Rome, the collection is neither chronologically arranged, nor very ordinate.

  • Rome Borghese Gallery Skip-the-Line Small Group Tour

    10. Rome Borghese Gallery Skip-the-Line Small Group Tour

    The Borghese Gallery is home to an incredible collection of art by masters such as Bernini, Caravaggio, Raphael, and Canova. Spend 2.5 hours touring the mansion with an expert guide. As you walk from room to room your guide will tell you some fascinating stories behind iconic works such as Raphael’s Entombment. One of the most appealing aspects of a Borghese Gallery visit is the museum’s small size. It’s feasible to cover the entire collection in time allotted. The small-group size of 15 or fewer people also keeps the experience intimate and friendly, so you can chat freely with your guide without disturbing the tranquility of the gallery. Access to Villa Borghese is limited to a certain number of visitors at any given time, making for a relaxed experience, but also creating a high level of demand. Securing Borghese tickets can be difficult, which is why you will benefit from reserve...

    The Borghese Gallery is a treat for the senses with an incredible selection of works by Bernini and Caravaggio, among many others. The visit was made even better because of our guide Tiberius. He is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable guide I’ve ever experienced. Definitely highly recommended and with the same guide!
