What to expect

Immerse yourself in pure beauty, skip the line and get straight into the Borghese Gallery.

Housed in the former Villa Borghese, a country retreat of a noble Roman family, the Gallery displays a rich collection of Italian art masterpieces. Cardinal Scipione Borghese was an early patron of Bernini and an avid collector of works by Caravaggio. Thanks to him, today we can see paintings such as the "Boy with a Basket of Fruit", "St Jerome Writing", and "Sick Bacchus".

The collection also includes other major paintings and works by Titian (“Sacred and Profane Love”), Raphael (“Entombment of Christ”), Peter Paul Rubens, and Federico Barocci. Discover the world-renowned marble sculptures of "Rape of Proserpine", "Apollo and Daphne" and the "David" by Bernini, as well as the sensual "Pauline Bonaparte" by Antonio Canova.

After this unique visit, let your guide take you for a lovely stroll in the Borghese Gardens (Villa Borghese). Locals love this park and you can see why: it is a real paradise in the heart of the city. Top off your beautiful day with a breathtaking view from the top when you reach the Pincio Terrace.
