Guided tour of adjoining gardens
  • Enjoy renowned artwork by these classic Italian artists: Bernini, Raphael, Canova, and Caravaggio

  • Admire pristine lawns, gushing fountains, and striking monuments with a walk though the gardens

Built between 1609 and 1613, Galleria Borghese houses one of the world's best collections of art. That's not hyperbole: sculptures by Bernini, paintings by Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titian – the list goes on. There's no better way to appreciate it than with a passionate and friendly guide to point out the intricate details of each piece and the historical significance of some of Italy's most influential artists, bringing these masterpieces to life.

After your small group guided tour of the Borghese Gallery, reflect on your experience with a walk on your own through the adjoining gardens, ending with a breathtaking view from the top of the Pincio Terrace.

If gargantuan museums like the Vatican and Louvre give you museum fatigue, you'll love your experience at the Galleria Borghese. Visits here come in two-hour slots, and are limited to 360 people at a time. So it gets busy, but not sardine-full.

Some of the many highlights include Canova's saucy semi-nude sculpture of Paolina Borghese (sister of Napoleon) casually reclining on a couch. Bernini's David and Apollo and Daphne, showcase the artist's gift for capturing action in stone. There are also many paintings from Renaissance bad-boy Caravaggio, including his Saint Jerome Writing, in which the saint appears to be using a human skull as a paperweight.

Other highlight canvases include Raphael's Deposition and Titian's Sacred and Profane Love. Your allotted time is just two hours, and seeing the collection with a guide will help you make the most of this opportunity; you won't just see the work, you'll come to understand the artists' intentions, and how they came to be in this lavish home.
