Know More about this tour

The Borghese Gallery is undoubtedly one of the most interesting, charming, elegant, and compact art museums in the world. It's not chronologically arranged, but is instead a very personal collection that reveals the personalities and tastes of two people: Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the greatest of Baroque artists, and Scipione Cardinal Borghese, the greatest art collector and the man who actually initiated the Roman Baroque.

Borghese's collection includes works such as Raffaello's Woman with the Unicorn, Domenichino's Diana, Botticelli's Madonna and Child, Caravaggio's David, and Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, just to name a few. Behind the works are untold stories of art being stolen from churches, artists being sent to jail, workshops being devastated by Borghese's confiscations, mysterious deaths, and other innumerable stories of intrigue and passion.

Borghese Gallery Tour includes but is not limited to:
  • The Caravaggio Room (St. Jerome, David with the Head of Goliath)
  • Bernini sculptures (Apollo and Daphne, David)
  • Canova sculpture (Pauline Bonaparte)
  • Works by Raphael (The Deposition, Lady with Unicorn)

  • Had a great tour of the Borghese Gallery! My guide was great, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We had only 5 people on the tour, and it was easy to get around with the small group. FYI, they really encourage you to check even small/medium purses, and the line can be brutal to do that, so try to get there early if you will need to check anything. The bag check was free.

  • FABULOUS TOUR certainly a must see for anyone visiting Rome.

  • Our guide Georgia was fantastic!!! Had great insight and information throughout the tour and kept us interested throughout the morning. This tour was one of the highlights of my trip and most of that is due to Georgia's wonderful tour! Thank you!!

  • Very good

  • Amazing gallery and well informed guide who highlighted details otherwise easily missed. The group was just us three, which was a bonus!

  • The art work in this gallery is fantastic. We had a wonderful guide-author. She has authored a book on one of the famous paintings! My only complaint is we had a measured amount of time allotted to our group I think it is that way for all groups. The marble statues are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The painting with the girl and the unicorn is very cool. The gift shop had great treasures on sale.

  • Very informative. Definitely worth it.

  • This was a great tour if you are interested in sculpture and artwork. The tour is limited to a number of people and it is time restrictive, so it's best to show up a little early. The grounds and Villa are difficult to find, it took us 3 hours just to find the grounds, and then another hour to find the actual villa, so if you are going for the first time, highly recommend that you locate where you need to go before you head to your tour. The guide was very informative and provided a great deal of information. If you have some issues with standing, be advised there are only a few areas where you can sit down and they are at the end of the last hour of the tour.

  • Great tour. There is a lot to see in Rome but The Borghese Gallery should not be missed. A real highlight.

  • By far the most incredible thing I did on this trip thanks to our guide Tiberio(Tiberius). He was animated and passionate about the content. Brought the Villa Borghese to life!
