Private Tour Of Borghese Gallery
A magnificent art collection where Bernini’s statues almost come to life and are surrounded by other famous masterpieces, such as: Titian’s “Sacred and Profane Love” and Caravaggio’s “David with the head of Goliath”. Other highlights include Antonio Canova’s world renowned marble portrait of Pauline Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon, and Raphael’s “Entombment”. The Borghese Gallery and Gardens are an experience that you cannot miss! The building is situated in Villa Borghese Park like an ancient treasure, and despite the huge crowds wishing to enter this famous museum, only a few per day are admitted, and thanks to our smart reservation system you will be among the lucky ones!
It houses the once private art collection of Cardinal Scipione Borghese nephew to the 17th Century Pope Paul V. It is the second most visited museum in Rome after the Vatican and a well organised private tour, with one of our expert guides, will give you an insightful experience of art and history that you will never forget. Before or after the entrance in the Gallery, the guide will show you around the three-sided garden with fences shaped like a little maze and the topiary trees set in the orangerie.
