OverviewEnjoy the personal attention of a private guide on this 3-hour tour of the Borghese Gallery. View masterpieces by Caravaggio, Raphael, Bernini and much more.
Borghese Gallery is an art gallery housed in the former Villa borghese Pinciana. At the outset, the gallery building was integrated with its gardens. The Villa Borghese gardens are considered a tourist attraction. The Galleria borghese houses a substantial part of the Borghese collection of paintings, sculpture and antiquities, begun by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, the nephew of Pope Paul V (reign 16051621). The Villa was built by the architect Flaminio Ponzio, developing sketches by Scipione Borghese himself, who used it as a villa suburbana, a country villa at the edge of Rome.
Scipione Borghese was an early patron of Bernini and an avid collector of works by Caravaggio, who is well represented in the collection by his Boy with a Basket of Fruit, St Jerome Writing, Sick Bacchus and others.
