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)
  • Perugino (Madonna and Child)
  • Rubens (The Deposition)
  • Titian (Sacred and Profane Love)

  • 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!

  • The was in the top 3 of my favorite tours during a 2 week 5 city tour of Italy. The Borghese limits the number of of people in the museum to 250 per two hours. You never feel crowded or rushed. Our tour guide loved her job and it was evident in her enthusiasm and knowledge of the museum, paintings, sculptures and history. A sense of humor was an added bonus. If you are a fan of Caravaggio, Bennini and Michaelangelo, you wo't be disappointed.
    I believe the tour operators could improve on the sign in process at the museum. The meeting spot wasn't clear nor the process for checking bags and pocketbooks required and returning to the group. I would definitely recommend this tour.

  • We had an excellent trip to the Borghese Gallery with Monica. Monica was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
    She passed on her passion to the group, which was very small. We bypassed the large line-up and had a wonderful visit to this excellent gallery.

  • A little difficult finding our particular tour group at the meeting point, but it was wonderful from there. The guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the museum. I learned so much about Caravaggio and Bernini, and have a better appreciation of the artists.

  • Our tour guide was very interesting and informative. Answered all of our questions and loves doing this tour. Highly recommend.

  • trip was very well organised and tour guide was so knowledgeable and experienced. impressive

  • Great

  • The villa museum is fascinating with many unique exhibits and an interesting history. We were however a little late as the direction signs in the park are 'ambiguous'
    Still a good tour.

  • Borghese museum is great, however- it was raining and there was no one to great us from Viator at entry. We spent 25 frustrating minutes finding where to go and what to do before greeter was found. Then as others in group were late, the tour started 20 minutes late but we were told to depart after the 2 hour mark so we only had 1 hour and 40 min tour. Guide was good but we were rushed. This was disappointing.
