Small Group Borghese Gallery Tour with Bernini Caravaggio and Raphael
From US$67.34
Overview
Maximize your time at Rome’s Villa Borghese and explore the art collection with a prebooked ticket and guide. Saving you time on admission lines, the tour takes you straight to the gallery highlights. Hear the stories behind works such as Caravaggio’s St. John the Baptist, and learn about the gallery’s frescoed interiors as you explore. Numbers are capped at 15 for a small-group museum experience.
What to Expect
Meet your guide inside Villa Borghese and head straight into the museum space with your prebooked ticket.

As you walk, you’ll learn about the architecture and elegant interiors of the building, which was once only open to a privileged few. Whereas once the art collection was only viewed by royals and nobility, today the museum is open to all.

Discover Villa Borghese’s showpiece works including St. John the Baptist by Caravaggio and Bernini’s Rape of Proserpina. You’ll hear the stories behind each masterpiece from your guide, and learn about Scipione Borghese, the eccentric cardinal who amassed the collection of artwork.

After viewing the main highlights of the museum, your tour ends back at the start point.

Very interesting tour made more so by our guide, Guido. He really knew his stuff and was very helpful in explaining the various works of art in this beautiful gallery.

Visit of Galleria Borghese in Rome

Guide was competent and interesting (I did this visit with my 13-year old daughter). Galleria Borghese in itself is gorgeous and refined, so are the numerous works of art. It was obviously not possible to see everything in the allocated 2-hr slot for the visit...More

Disappointing Walks of Italy Tour

We loved 3 out of 4 of our Walks of Italy activities. This was the disappointment. Our guide (can't recall her name) on 3/16 knows her art history without a doubt, but the tour could have been much more interesting if she integrated the art,...More

Incredible art brought to life by an amazing guide!

We had booked this tour for our last day in Rome and when it came around to the tour time, we were debating whether to do it or not as we felt we were ‘art-ed’ our having seen so much over the previous four days...More
