Small-Group Tour: Skip the Line Borghese Gallery
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Galleria Borghese, Piazzale del Museo Borghese 5, 00197 Rome Italy
The Borghese Gallery is undoubtedly one of the most interesting, charming, elegant, and compact art museums in the world. It's not chronologically arranged, but is instead a very personal collection that reveals the personalities and tastes of two people: Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the greatest of Baroque artists, and Scipione Cardinal Borghese, the greatest art collector and the man who actually initiated the Roman Baroque.
Borghese's collection includes works such as Raffaello's Woman with the Unicorn, Domenichino's Diana, Botticelli's Madonna and Child, Caravaggio's David, and Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, just to name a few. Behind the works are untold stories of art being stolen from churches, artists being sent to jail, workshops being devastated by Borghese's confiscations, mysterious deaths, and other innumerable stories of intrigue and passion.
Borghese Gallery Tour includes but is not limited to:
• The Caravaggio Room (St. Jerome, David with the Head of Goliath)
• Bernini sculptures (Apollo and Daphne, David)
• Canova sculpture (Pauline Bonaparte)
• Works by Raphael (The Deposition, Lady with Unicorn)
• Perugino (Madonna and Child)
• Rubens (The Deposition)
• Titian (Sacred and Profane Love)

Our small group tour of the Borghese gallery was, by far, one of the best guided tours we’ve ever taken. Our guide was vivacious, extremely knowledgeable, professional, and enthusiastic! In addition to providing, background information on the art and the artists, she added fascinating anecdotes and stories. I highly recommend this tour!
An information dense tour where ALL of your questions are answered fully and cheerfully. Recommendded
This was a great tour to hit the most important parts of the Gallery.. We highly recommend this tour for a great overview of the Italian artists. Perfect amount of time to see and get all the important information if you're interested in just highlights. Our tour guide (sorry I don't remember her name) was very pleasant and knowledgeable.
What an incredible museum! Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Everyone is limited to two hours in the museum, and without her guidance I likely wouldn't have made it beyond the first floor. There is so much to see in such a short time- but she made it very worthwhile. Would recommend it highly!
The Borghese Gallery is not a venue that is a must for the typical tourist in Rome. It does, however have an amazing art collection that is well worth the trip. Since the visit is timed for two hours, it is extremely important that you move quickly to see the entire exhibit.Our guide was extremely knowledgeable concerning the collection and was able to provide both a historical and artistic perspective. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in art and wishes to expand their knowledge.
Had a great tour of the Borghese Gallery! My guide was great, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We had only 5 people on the tour, and it was easy to get around with the small group. FYI, they really encourage you to check even small/medium purses, and the line can be brutal to do that, so try to get there early if you will need to check anything. The bag check was free.
Amazing gallery and well informed guide who highlighted details otherwise easily missed. The group was just us three, which was a bonus!
