Tour Description

Galleria Borghese was built for Cardinal Scipione Borghese who was an art enthusiast and an intelligent collector of both sculptures and paintings. The Gallery contains works of art which would be the envy of museums all over the world.Its tranquil setting in Villa Borghese and its Gardens makes the Borghese Gallery off the beaten track a destination that is incomparable to the other main sites in Rome.

With the Galleries policy of limited numbers, we can guarantee that you will not be swarmed with crowds, this private tour is the best way to truly experience art in all of its glory. Cardinal Scipione befriended the artist Bernini at a young age and commissioned some of the sculptors finest works which are still displayed where they were originally meant to be seen, along side many other magnificent sculptures from ancient Greece and Rome.

We will also have the chance to admire many other treasures that the collection has to offer including Canova's stunning sculpture of Pauline Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon. This Gallery does not cease to amaze as it also boasts paintings from some of Italy's finest artists such as Raphael, Caravaggio and Titian. All of which will be taken in during this 2.5 hour walking tour.

When visiting this Gallery we cannot only admire the works inside the building, we must also admire the building itself. The structure of Borghese Gallery is quite spectacular; its design and architecture makes it second to none contributing to a full immersion into the world of art. Unlike many other attractions in Rome, this is truly a relaxing place where the mass crowds do not spoil the visit, as they do in other areas of the city.
