Tour Description

Explore one of the most beautiful art galleries in Rome in a 17th century villa built specifically to house a dazzling collection of art.  The Borghese Gallery is named after Scipione Borghese an extremely wealthy Cardinal who had a passion for art.  Nephew to the Pope, he was an avid collector and talent spotter who was ruthless when it came to getting his hands on the masterpieces that had taken his fancy.

Whether you are new to art or consider yourself an afficionado you will love this Borghese Gallery tour. Your guide will take you back to the 17th century when the cardinal hosted lavish parties to share his art collection with other nobles.  You will hear how he stole paintings and even used the pope to threaten artists as well as hear about the lives and works of the most famous artists in Rome.

A limited number of visitors can enter the Borghese Gallery at any one time, which means you can enjoy the surroundings and masterpieces of Italy’s most talented artists in relative peace compared to other museums in Rome.  The collection contains more pieces by Caravaggio and Bernini than any other gallery in the world, not to mention artworks by Titian, Raphael and Canova.   You will see some of Caravaggio’s controversial paintings and hear about his tumultuous life compared with the outstanding beauty and realism of Bernini’s sculpture of Apollo and Daphne and the Rape of Persephone.

In your private tour you will have the opportunity to delve more into these stories and interact on a more personal level with your guide.  Borghese Gallery tickets can be hard to obtain, but we reserve these ahead of time so that all you need to do is show up at the meeting time and come with us to enjoy some of the world’s most beautiful artwork in a sumptuous setting.
