Stop At: Galleria borghese, Rome, Lazio

Imagine a palace that was specifically built to house amazing works of art. Its twenty rooms are treasure troves of visual splendor: every wall holds a masterpiece, every pedestal supports exquisitely carved marble, and even the ceilings sing with divine frescoes. Well, you dont have to imagine it because this is a description of the Galleria borghese, Romes most exclusive and intimate art museum. Built in the 17th century by Cardinal Scipione Borghese specifically to house his magnificent art collection, it was once only open to royals and visiting dignitaries. Today, it lets in groups at two-hour intervals (with pre-reserved tickets) to ensure that its 20 rooms of masterpieces are never overcrowded.

    We loved our afternoon in the gallery!! The tour did not include the Gardens, but we spent a few hours wandering around ourselves which was just lovely. If you love art you will not be disappointed!

    Took this guided tour with my wife on June 11, 2019.
    Our guide Felix was simply outstanding. His knowledge of Art History was extremely appreciated.
    Felix has a PHD in Art History and had an unbelievable style delivering his message making everything informative and historical.
    One of the best guides I have ever had.
    Well done Felix.

    Our guide, Irish Louise from Walks - Italy, etc, really made this visit for us. Her knowledge of and passion for the work she was explaining really shone through, and navigated us expertly to see the key works despite competition from numerous other groups and their guides.

    The guide was knowledgeable about the art we saw. He was able to answer all of our questions. The group size was small making it easy to maneuver in the many galleries. He moved us against the crowds do we had time to appreciate all that we were seeing.

    Museum was spectacular and Felix brought the museum pieces to life. Thank you for a great afternoon. Only disappointment was that pictures could not be taken and they had no product that was small and easily packable

    Really enjoyed this tour as our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. He made sure to explain the details and history and would pause to allow us time to enjoy the extraordinary art. He definitely has a passion for what he does.

    This tour was taken on March 11, 2018 at 2:45 p.m. Our tour guide was Sara M. from Walks of Italy. I was impressed by her knowledge, interpretation and skills her explanation was perfect. There was no rush. This was not my first visit to the Borghese Gallery. Nevertheless, I learned a lot from Sara M. and would not mind to repeat the same Borghese Gallery tour with her. Grazie mille, Sara M., for this interesting, wonderful, unforgettable tour. This tour is a must and highly recommended.

    The Borghese Gallery lived up to everything we had heard about it. We are glad we did this tour rather than going by ourselves for the two hours that each ticket allows each person in the gallery. We were able to see a selection of the important items, with great commentary, without feeling rushed, and now we can go back on our own to spend more time with those items that are most interesting to us. Maria was a perfect guide. She provided great context and connection for the items included in the tour. She was also helpful in getting us into the gallery with the least hassle.
