What to expect

Visit one of the richest and most interesting Villas in Rome. The Borghese Gallery is well known for its vast collection of great Italian masterpieces of artists such as Bernini, Canova, Caravaggio and Titian. Here you'll find sculptures, paintings and pieces that will make this one of the most interesting and varied art experiences of your life.

The Villa was once home to Cardinal Scipione Borghese and many of the works of art inside the villa were commissioned by the Cardinal himself, known for being a passionate patron. Wander the luxurious rooms of the Cardinal Borghese’s Villa and admire the groundbreaking masterpieces in their original settings just as the artists intended them to be seen.

With a special gift of recognizing beauty, the Cardinal collected an impressive number of masterpieces, from some of Caravaggio’s early works to Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s 'Apollo and Daphne', Canova’s portrait of ‘Pauline Bonaparte’ and Raphael’s ‘Deposition’. Your expert and professional English-speaking guide will accompany you through the collection, allowing you to get the most out of your visit and to fully appreciate the peaceful atmosphere that reigns over this incredible gallery.

During the second half of the tour, you will pass through the gardens of Villa Borghese, admiring the carefully cut lawns, fountains, ponds and monuments. Enjoy a walk through the park and escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The tour ends with a breathtaking view from the top of the Pincio Terrace.
