Borghese Gallery Masterpieces & Gardens: Skip-the-Line Tour

3. Borghese Gallery Masterpieces & Gardens: Skip-the-Line Tour

Cardinal Scipione Borghese commissioned both the Villa Borghese itself and many of the great works still on display in its gallery. Works by Bernini, Caravaggio, and Titian remain in their original settings, as envisioned by the Cardinal, a fiercely determined collector. Strictly-controlled entry to the Villa and Gallery can make booking difficult and complicated. This package lets you avoid the organizing and even skip the line to get in when you arrive. During this fully-guided tour you’ll hear more about Cardinal Borghese’s quest to complete his collection, and the stories behind the artworks themselves, including Bernini’s "Apollo and Daphne", Canova’s "Pauline Bonaparte", Caravaggio’s "St. Jerome" and Raphael’s "The Deposition". Your guide will be an English-speaker and an expert on the collection, and audio headsets ensure you’ll hear every word they say. The tour also includes a visit to the Borghese Gardens: once the Cardinal’s private park, now a favorite spot for locals to relax among sculptures, plants, and water features, and get away from it all. From the Pincio Terrace you can appreciate another kind of work of art: the vista of Rome itself, from the Piazza del Popolo into the distance.

What people are saying about Rome

This was a two hour tour of the Borghese museum it flew by - our tour guide, was so entertaining and well informed. I can honestly say it was one of the most interesting, informative and entertaining tours I have ever had of a museum. Lots of interesting stories, anecdotes, and behind the scenes info. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Totally worth while.

This tour will not disappoint and should be at the top of everyone’s lists of things to see. The museum is not large and overwhelming like some others around Rome.

The lady who was our group's leader and guided us, was just perfect. The whole service was lovely. Thank you so very much!

We had a fantastic time on our tour! Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable. So glad we did this with a guide!
