Borghese Gallery

Built between 1609 and 1613, this opulent structure - fountains, gardens, pink marble walls, frescoed ceilings - seems ideally suited to house one of the world's best collections of art. And that was exactly what it was built for. Architect Flaminio Ponzio designed it for the cardinal and art collector Scipione Borghese, who wanted a party villa on the edge of town where he could house his enormous collection of priceless art. In 1901, the collection (and the gallery, and the park that surrounds it) was acquired by the Italian government, and opened to the public.

As a museum, Galleria Borghese punches well above its weight with an impressive hit rate of masterpieces. Sculptures by Bernini and Canova, paintings, by Caravaggio, Raphael and Titian... the list goes on.

The Borghese Collection is beyond beautiful! The administrative procedures (or lack thereof) getting visitors in and out is abyssmal. The staff is rude. Would I visit again? Yes!

The quality of the art work collected by this one man is incredible. It's also nice to get away from the crowds in the middle of Rome to this this beautiful spot in the hills.

Borghese Gallery is beautiful. I might even say that the ceilings there are more wondrous than the Sistine Chapel.
