VILLA BORGHESE GALLERY TOUR
Far too many visitors leave Rome without even hearing about the Borghese Gallery. Home to a smaller and more elite collection than the Vatican, this smaller museum offers a rare opportunity to see some of the world’s most impressive masterpieces in their original setting. With works by Bernini, Canova, Caravaggio, and Titian it has a billing to rival the Louvre, and with strict ticketing rules, none of the crowds.
Join us one of our relaxed Borghese Gallery tours, which also cover the beautiful gardens. With an expert, English-speaking guide, you’ll delve into the Borghese collection, seeing Bernini’s captivating ‘Apollo and Daphne’, Canova’s ‘Pauline Bonaparte’, Caravaggio’s ‘St. Jerome’ and ‘David with the Head of Goliath’, and Raphael’s ‘The Deposition’ to name but a few. Your guide will lead you through the rooms, explaining the beautiful paintings and sculptures you pass and how they came to be here.
On the way, you’ll hear about Napoleon’s envy and how his sister shocked dinner guests – bringing the building and art you experience to life.
But our tour doesn’t end at the gallery exit. Next, your guide will take you on a relaxed walking tour around the stunning Borghese Gardens. Modeled on the English gardens so admired by Renaissance Romans, the gardens are home to a beautiful array of plants, sculptures, and water features. We’ll finish up at the Pincio Terrace from where you’ll see stunning views over Piazza del Popolo and all of Rome beyond.
