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.

This is the most amazing collection of Bernini sculptures & other prized works of art. Do not miss this collection & it is worth the ticket price by not being overcrowded!

Incredible experience. We had no idea that the art and sculpture collection would be this great. Our bike ride through the grounds was equally pleasurable with a stop along the way for an excellent lunch at the restaurant in the park while listening to a guitarist playing music in the background.

Other sites told me the date and time I chose to visit were sold out of tickets - but I went on Tiquets and immediately found tickets for my choice of date/time! A perfect service, easy to print tickets, instantly available after purchasing to download and/or print from home - all in all, a highly recommended and professional site.

Missed the part where you have to go down to the ticket window and obtain paper tickets, but other than that it was wonderful. My favorite museum in Rome.
