Borghese Gallery Guided Tour Information

The Villa Borghese, built for the infamous Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V was designed as a personal gallery to show off the Cardinal’s art collection. You will find out on the tour how the original collection was obtained by often nefarious yet highly original means!

Known as one of the first ‘art collectors’, the Cardinal amassed a stunning collection of work by Caravaggio and was one of the primary sponsors of Bernini which explains why the museum features numerous masterpieces by the two amongst others.

Today the collection houses many magnificent pieces by not only Caravaggio and Bernini but also many other great works spanning the 15th to the 17th century by artists such as TitianRaphael, and Antonello da Messina, together with an exquisite collection of ancient sculptures.

The gallery is contained within the beautiful Villa Borghese where the surrounding gardens are an attraction in themselves and actually make up the third biggest park in all of Rome.

Exhibitions In The Borghese Gallery:

Just some of the awe-inspiring pieces you will be introduced to include:

  • Apollo and Daphne by Bernini.
  • Pauline Bonaparte by Antonio Canova.
  • The Sacred & Profane Love by Titian
  • Deposition of Christ by Raphael
  • David & Goliath by Caravaggio
  • And many, many more…

Why Book Your Galleria Borghese Tour With Luxe?

Quite simply, visiting the Borghese Gallery is one of the absolute best ways to spend your time on your Rome vacation. However, to ensure that you come away from this experience with a fuller appreciation and understanding of the significance, both artistic and historically of the works contained within the gallery’s walls then you truly require an experienced, qualified, and passionate guide who can act as an expert storyteller.

A private tour ensures that you can spend more time with the works that you find the most inspiring and beautiful, and you and your private group are welcome to ask as many questions as you wish.

Exclusive Opening of The Galleria Borghese

One of the most refined of all Rome’s art galleries, the Galleria Borghese is best explored in the evening after it has closed to the general public. Italy by Luxe can arrange a completely private opening for you and your guests to enjoy the masterpieces of Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Domenichini & Bernini in complete privacy with your guide.

We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience! During our week in Rome in July, Amy and her fabulous assistants Irenes P and V put together two wonderful tours for us. Our first was a tour of the Vatican Museum accompanied by our guide Jessica, the second to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Forum with Letizia. Both guides were knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. We all got a lot out of the tours - it’s so much better than wandering around by yourselves. Discovering secret messages in famous art works or having centuries old graffiti pointed out is just thrilling. It’s also fabulous bypassing the queues and having air-conditioned transfers to and from the sites. We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience.
