What to expect

When in Rome, one cannot miss out on the Borghese Gallery, a museum that houses a very important art collection including works by Bernini, Caravaggio, Canova, and Raphael.

A professional local guide will illustrate the Gallery and its elegant, sophisticated and even regal interior and exterior spaces. The underlying sculptures and paintings in the building come from the private collection of cardinal Scipione Borghese (1579 - 1633), an art collector and patron, son of Ortensia Borghese, pope Paul V’s sister.

Pauline Bonaparte as Venus Victrix, sculpted by Canova between 1805 and 1808, has been here since 1838. In 1807 Camillo Borghese gave Napoleon 154 statues, 160 busts, 170 bas-reliefs, 30 columns and a number of other objects that now make for a Borghese-derived Louvre catalog. Bernini’s artworks have a prominent position in the gallery’s spaces on the first floor, too - so much so that one cannot but be literally entranced by them.

By booking this tour, access is secured and you won’t have to pay anything at check-in. You may choose between the hotel pick-up version and the meeting point option, where you will be reaching the start location on your own.
