Borghese Gallery is housed in Villa Borghese, an elegant mansion located in the fascinating setting of a large, beautiful park in the center of Rome.
You will have the unique chance to admire amazing masterpieces without big crowds, thanks to our timed tickets reservation: no stress, just enjoy the tour!
Your private, experienced and passionate guide will focus on the outstanding artists (from Raphael to Canova, from Botticelli to Tiziano, from Velazquez to Rubens!) represented in this wonderful collection, set up by the Cardinal Scipione Borghese. He was a great admirer of both Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Caravaggio, so the lavish rooms of the villa collect their most famous masterpieces.
Admire the fascinating details of Caravaggio’s canvases‘ dramatic shadows and bright shafts of light, listening to engaging and interesting explanations of their symbolic meaning.
Get up close to the statues to discover Bernini‘s incredible skill in manipulating marble, and enjoy the exquisite details of the Apollo and Daphne and the Rape of Proserpina that make the rock seem like flesh!
