Tour Description

A collection as manageble as it is beautiful

A collection as manageble as it is beautiful

The Borghese Gallery tour takes you inside one of the most spell-binding art museums in the world. Located in the 17th century home of Cardinal Borghese, it houses the art of the Cardinal himself - collected, commissioned (and even stolen!) during his lifetime. Since this is a private residence and not a sprawling palace, the Borghese Gallery is strikingly manageable. During your 2.5 hour visit you'll see all of the rooms and even have time to delve into the stories behind the artworks.

In the company of an expert art historian guide, you'll see paintings by Caravaggio, Titian, Canova, and Raphael. Your guide will help you understand and interpret these masterworks, so you won't just enjoy them, you'll understand them. You'll also see the incomparable collection of sculptures by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, including Apollo and Daphne, the Rape of Proserpine, and more. This is art as it was meant to be seen, in a beautiful intimate setting.

The unparalleled joy of a quite gallery

Borghese Gallery tickets are a limited commodity. Only a set number of people are allowed inside at any given time, which has two results: First, the gallery is relatively peaceful at all times, particularly in comparison with the Vatican Museums; and second, tickets often sell out far in advance. We pre-reserve your tickets to guarantee that you won't be disappointed on the day.

Get the most from your visit with the perfect host & small group sizes

Our Borghese gallery tour is not just about looking at art; it's about you’re experiencing it. With small groups of only 15 people or fewer you’ll have time and space to interact with your guide, discussing what you see on a more personal level, And, whether you think you love art or not, we promise: After this tour, you will love the Borghese – and probably Bernini, Caravaggio, Canova and Raphael, too.

Loved everything about this tour. Stephanie was incredibly knowledgeable and very personable. I only wish we could have stayed longer in the gallery and learned about all the pieces! (I know this isn't possible, but I loved it so much that I wish it were)
