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.

Borghese Tour

Visiting the museum (which is incredible, as are it's contents) wouldn't have been near so wonderful & enriching without our very gracious tour guide, Cecelia. Only an art historian can so fluidly meld politics and religion and history. I strongly suggest you visit with such...More

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
