Know More about this tour

The Borghese Gallery is located in the heart of the public garden "Villa Borghese", an enchanting park with little lakes and trees that is beloved by the Roman people.

The powerful Borghese family ruled in the 1800's and strictly connected with Napoleon and his family. The Galleria Borghese is a splendid well-preserved building which displays a unique collection of antiquities of the 1st–3rd centuries AD, classical and neoclassical sculptures which will take your breath away.
 
Marvel at the incredible masterpieces of sculpture such as the Paolina Borghese from Canova. Admire paintings from Rubens and Tiziano. Accompanied by a professional and friendly tour guide, learn about Bernini's genius: the Goat Amalthea with Infant, Jupiter and Faun, the Rape of Proserpine, Apollo and Daphne and the David are all here to be watched over and over again. In addition, several portrait busts are included in the Gallery.

Entrance fees and tickets are included in the price and you will skip all lines. After the guided tour, your small group will take a relaxed stroll through Villa Borghese. The tour ends with a breathtaking view of the roofs of Rome and Piazza del Popolo from the Pincio Terrace.

  • It was great for someone who doesn’t know all the history of the pieces and the venue. There is a walk through the Gardens afterward so be prepared to stroll!

  • The guide was very knowledgable and kept us away from the crowds. This is a small museum and sells out quickly everyday so book early.

  • This guided tour focuses on the best and most interesting art and sculpture in this private collection. Our guide was on-time, pleasant and knowledgable. He also helped me get between floors by asking staff to assist me using the lift as I had a recently injured foot and cane.
    I felt the pace of the tour was slower than necessary, even allowing that the guides try to coordinate their groups through the rooms for less-crowded viewing. This is an art appreciation tour. The artwork is beautiful and the walk through the gardens is delightful- even with a cane.

  • Because of flight cancellation I was unable to attend this tour, but my friend thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • This tour was well worth it - knowledgeable guide, described the major exhibits of the Gallery and grounds very well. I was also impressed by the tour company, Gray Line - I Love Rome by Carrani Tours. I booked the tour less than 10 hours prior, as my original tour was cancelled last minute. The tour was full, but I was able to book it through Viator due to a glitch in the website. They let me join - I had to pay in cash for my Gallery ticket because it was not pre-purchased with the rest of the group, but my credit card was almost immediately refunded the cost. The Borghese Gallery is a must if you visit Rome, and I would definitely see it with this small-group tour!!

  • We saw this tour towards the end of our trip in Rome, and maybe I was jaded. It struck me as pretty much just another ostentatious building, stuffed with sculptures and paintings and other objects meant to impress. I would have loved a more thorough introduction to the family who lived there, comments on changes in society through their time there, the transition of the museum to state ownership, how or if the building had and has any significance to locals. As it was, I found it to be pretty much just another crowded tourist stop.

  • Skip the line does not mean less crowded. Keep that in mind if you are thinking of this tour. The guide was excellent.

  • This tour is unique to me in the fact that all the art was owned by a private family for a very long time!! The acquisition of it blows my mind, not to mention the amount and all of the beauty! Our tour guide was fabulous and would recommend this tour to everyone.

  • Beautiful Gallery, really worth the visit and the guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Fully worth it.

  • Egle was an excellent guide, enthusiastic and very informed.Pick up at hotel was on time and the treasures of the Borghese Gallery were stunning.Egle used the time available the museum asks you to leave after 2 hours to discuss the best the museum has to offer, a tough job as there is so much to see.We could not have sarted our trip to Rome any better.Much recommended.
