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 Borgheses were 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.

This was as easy as could be. Ordered tickets online and picked up at the Borghese Gallery. There was a long line to pick up your tickets, but it moved very quickly.

A very simple booking process. The only way through the Borghese Gallery is to book a time slot. Tiqets made it clear and easy. The gallery is a must see.

Ir was a very interesting visit! Such beautiful pièces of art, I recommand to use an audioguide (5€ each) to truly appreciate this visit. The only negative point is that you must finish your visit in MAXIMUM 2 hours since the hour of reservation (not the hour of your arrival). With audioguide + pictures it becomes nearly impossible to do/see everything. But anyway, it was amazing. And the entire park is beautiful and nice to walk in. Very good activity if you'ré staying in Roma.
