Easy​ ​Access​ ​&​ ​Smaller​ ​Crowds

Enjoy​ ​the​ ​Borghese​ ​Gallery​ ​and​ ​its​ ​Gardens ​during​ ​a​ ​relaxing​ ​and entertaining​ ​small​ ​semi-private​ ​group​ ​tour.​ ​With​ ​12​ ​people​ ​or​ ​less per​ ​group,​ ​your​ ​journey​ ​through​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world’s​ ​finest​ ​art collections​ ​will​ ​be​ ​personal​ ​and​ ​slow-paced,​ ​always​ ​maintaining​ ​full interaction​ ​with​ ​your​ ​experienced​ ​tour​ ​guide.​ ​The​ ​Gallery​ ​limits access​ ​to​ ​only​ ​260​ ​visitors​ ​per​ ​session,​ ​therefore​ ​it​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the most​ ​intimate​ ​art​ ​experiences​ ​Rome​ ​has​ ​to​ ​offer.

The​ ​Must-See​ ​Highlights​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Borghese​ ​Gallery Tour

The​ ​tour​ ​will​ ​start​ ​with​ ​an​ ​introduction​ ​to​ ​one​ ​of​ ​Rome’s​ ​most​ ​beautiful Villa​ ​and​ ​its​ ​gardens.​ ​Once​ ​inside​ ​the​ ​Gallery,​ ​your​ ​expert English-speaking​ ​tour​ ​guide​ ​will​ ​bring​ ​to​ ​life​ ​–​ ​with​ ​entertaining​ ​facts​ ​and stories​ ​–​ ​Caravaggio,​ ​Titian​ ​and​ ​Raphael’s​ ​paintings,​ ​Bernini’s​ ​famous sculptures​ ​such​ ​as:​ ​Apollo​ ​and​ ​Daphne,​ ​the​ ​Rape​ ​of​ ​Persephone,​ ​the David​ ​and​ ​many​ ​others,​ ​making​ ​the​ ​Borghese​ ​collection​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most impressive​ ​art​ ​galleries​ ​in​ ​the​ ​world.

In​ ​the​ ​Footsteps​ ​of​ ​Bernini​ ​and​ ​Caravaggio

Scipione​ ​was​ ​a​ ​real​ ​connoisseur​ ​of​ ​art;​ ​he​ ​loved​ ​the​ ​“Antique”​ ​(ancient Roman​ ​statues​ ​and​ ​mosaics),​ ​the​ ​“Modern”​ ​(Renaissance​ ​paintings),​ ​as well​ ​as​ ​the​ ​“Contemporary”,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Bernini’s​ ​theatrical​ ​statues​ ​and Caravaggio’s​ ​dark​ ​and​ ​unconventional​ ​paintings.

The​ ​cardinal’s​ ​strong​ ​desire​ ​to​ ​own​ ​the​ ​best​ ​works​ ​of​ ​art​ ​available​ ​on​ ​the market​ ​pushed​ ​him​ ​to​ ​adopt​ ​rather​ ​unorthodox​ ​methods​ ​of​ ​acquisition: for​ ​example,​ ​he​ ​sent​ ​his​ ​guards​ ​to​ ​Perugia​ ​to​ ​steal​ ​Raphael’s​ ​masterpiece the​ ​“Deposition​ ​of​ ​Christ”.​ ​And​ ​to​ ​get​ ​his​ ​hands​ ​on​ ​Domenichino’s beautiful​ ​“Hunt​ ​of​ ​Diana,”​ ​which​ ​had​ ​been​ ​commissioned​ ​by​ ​another cardinal,​ ​he​ ​went​ ​so​ ​far​ ​as​ ​to​ ​throw​ ​the​ ​artist​ ​in​ ​jail​ ​to​ ​convince​ ​him​ ​to hand​ ​over​ ​the​ ​precious​ ​canvas​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Borghese.

The​ ​Borghese​ ​Gallery​ ​is​ ​immersed​ ​in​ ​the​ ​tranquillity​ ​and​ ​beauty​ ​of​ ​the surrounding​ ​gardens,​ ​and​ ​thus​ ​is​ ​a​ ​true​ ​delight​ ​for​ ​the​ ​senses​ ​and​ ​one​ ​of the​ ​most​ ​rewarding​ ​sites​ ​that​ ​Rome​ ​has​ ​to​ ​offer.
