Galleria Borghese Tour

Your guide will bring you to the magnificent park of Villa Borghese, one of Rome’s best outdoor spaces. In the 17th-century, it was Cardinal Scipione Borghese’s elegant residence; today, its “Casino Nobile” serves as a museum.

The building is a neo-classical masterpiece, wonderfully decorated by the sculptors and painters who worked on it during the 18th century.

Artworks of Raphael, Caravaggio, and Rubens

Admire timeless classics, most magnificent paintings, and splendid sculptures from the Renaissance to the Neoclassic era, such as Raphael, Caravaggio, and Rubens.

The centerpiece of the Borghese museum is the collection of marble sculptures by Bernini – Rome’s iconic master of Baroque, as one may have noticed from his numerous monuments that adorn the city. Your guide will tell you all about this child prodigy’s turbulent relationship with the Papacy.

Other masterpieces await, such as the enchanting marble portrait of Pauline Bonaparte – wife of Prince Camillo Borghese and Napoleon’s sister – by Canova and Titian’s famed “Sacred and Profane Love.”

The exhibition also includes, among several others, a well-preserved gladiator mosaic that dates back to circa AD 320.

Villa Borghese Tour – the gardens

At the end of the Borghese Gallery Tour, your guide will take you to the Pincio panoramic terrace, overlooking the elegant Piazza del Popolo. Before reaching this famous Valadier-designed Square, you will walk across the historical park of Villa Borghese and genuinely admire the pristine beauty of this beautiful space.
