Our Borghese Gallery tour is a fascinating exploration of Italian Renaissance and Baroque art.

Duration: about 2,5 hours

The Borghese Gallery is home to some of the greatest masterpieces by Bernini, Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian and many other artists, perfectly placed in the equally breathtaking villa built by the cardinal Scipione in the beginning of the 1600s.

Scipione was obsessed with the idea of gathering the most beautiful artworks he could find in order to create a collection that his guests would envy. This collection is now open to the public, and our Borghese Gallery tour is the perfect way to visit this incredible museum and see the masterpieces that Scipione wanted just for himself.

Your private guide will pick you up at your hotel and you will take a cab to the Borghese Gallery together (ride included in the tour price). Here, you will learn about the history, style, and artistic techniques of the paintings and statues, but also about the lives of the artists: Raphael’s passion for women, Caravaggio’s violent temper, Bernini’s rock star attitude. .

In this small museum, which has limited access, you will enjoy some of the most beautiful Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces. Only 350 people are allowed to be inside the Borghese Gallery at the same time; therefore, even when the museum is full, you will not experience the overwhelming crowds that you find at the Vatican or at other tourist attractions. The downside of the limited entrance policy is that you can be inside the museum for a maximum of two hours: that’s why our Borghese Gallery tour has been designed so that you can make the most of your time.

You will be amazed by the colors and realism of Caravaggio’s paintings, and find it hard to believe that Bernini could carve marble statues that seem to challenge gravity and the idea of weight itself. Equally captivating are the details of the artworks by Canova, Raphael, Titian, and many other great masters.
