Highlights
  • Get timed entrance tickets for the Borghese Gallery (note that tickets aren't usually available on the day - and in fact often sell out up to a month in advance)
  • Among the painted highlights: Caravaggio's Saint Jerome Writing, Raphael’s Deposition and Titian's Sacred and Profane Love
  • Two statues to see here: Bernini's David sculpture is a lithe, coiled, figure in mid-battle with Goliath. And the Venus Victrix is a semi-nude by Canova, who used Napolean's sister Pauline as his model
Description

The art collection of the wealthy, noble Borghese family soon became too big for a single home. It moved into the Galleria Borghese - a separate building in the famous Villa Borghese park. In 1901, the collection passed into the hands of the Italian government and ever since, tourists travel from all over the world to see this beautiful museum! Timed tickets are hard to come by, so grab yours before they're all gone!

The Borghese family was a rich and powerful Italian family who moved to Rome in the 16th century. Camillo Borghese became Pope Paul V, appointed his nephew Scipione Cardinal, and then things started really coming up Borghese.

Scipione Borghese had a brain for power and an eye for art. He was a patron of Caravaggio and Bernini, and ended up building the Galleria Borghese to house his ever-expanding collection of work from these two, and other Renaissance masters.

This small museum punches well above its weight, thanks to the lush surroundings (pink marble walls, frescoed ceilings, etc.) and the hit rate of masterpieces. Plus, thanks to the timed entrance policy, it gets busy but never crowded.

Artistic highlights include Bernini's sculpture of David which captures the biblical hero coiled in a state of readiness, and The Rape of Proserpina - done when Bernini was just 23. Other highlights include Caravaggio's Boy with Fruit Basket and Raphael's extraordinary Deposition of Christ and Lady with a Unicorn.

A visit here is a trip into the rarefied air of Renaissance highlife and a chance to commune with artistic masterpieces from Renaissance masters.

Very few works of art,not so worth for time and money. The museo of cambitolium was an experience of a lifetime, but not the Borghese gallery.

Tiqets was an easy system to use. Borghese was a beautiful gallery. Not so crowded so we could really enjoy the art.

The Gallery met my expectations but the limited time isn't sufficient.

Excellent museum. Beautifully decorated. First floor is mostly sculptures, with many famous works by Bernini. Second floor is mostly pictures with some well known works. We spent 6 days in Rome and went to many museums. This was the best one we visited. Cameras are allowed. Water bottles aren't.
Visits are limited to 2 hours and you need to reserve tickets well in advance (several days). Make sure you get there at least 30 minutes before your slot to wait in line to redeem the web ticket and check in all you handbags/backpacks.
Tiqets site was only place that had tickets available for the day we wanted and the price was reasonable (3 Euros above the museum price). Printed out the tickets sent via email and had no problems getting them redeemed at the ticket counter.

Unlike the Vatican Museum where you are carried in a tide of humanity unable to appreciate anything, you have time and space in the Borghese (due to rationing of numbers) to get close to the stunning works of Bernini, Caravaggio etc and to take in the beauty of the rooms.
