With a small group of 8 people, it's a great experience, as no time is wasted and everyone can see the works. Luciana is an excellent guide. She passes on her knowledge with brio and simplicity. The works she chooses and comments on are relevant. Everything is contextualized.

We had an amazing tour guide Federica (sp) who knew so much history and details about the gallery, artists, and Italy in general. She held our attention for the entire tour and was so pleasant and attentive to our group. She was entertaining and had a wonderful personality. We would highly recommend this tour because otherwise you wouldn't get the expert insights like our guide had. Thank you!!

The guide was amazing! The tour was very informative and our guide talked both about the sculptures and the paintings. I really recommend this tour.

We appreciated the fact that the guide introduced us to the main works during the visit, and that the explanations were given with finesse and humor, enabling us to understand the works. At the end of the tour, we also had a little time to come back and see some of the works we liked. The two hours went by too quickly.

Very knowledgeable and engaging guide. Received great insights to the art and history of the grounds and museum. We had a fantastic time.

There are few museums in the world that can match the grandeur of the Borghese Gallery. It houses collections of art by legendary painters and sculptors such as Berini, Messina, Raphael, Caravaggio, and many others. These works of art were originally assembled by the wealthy Cardinal Scipione Borghese. The Borghese Family continued to add pieces to the incredible collection.

Some of the artworks were sold to the French State during the 19th century as the Borghese family started going bankrupt. These pieces are still preserved in the Louvre. Since 1903, the museum has been open to the public and has seen significant restoration and modernization work.

On your visit, you will be accompanied by an expert guide, who will narrate interesting anecdotes related to the museum and the pieces of art inside. Gaze into the depths of Bernini’s famous sculpture of ‘Apollo and Daphne’ and Raphael’s ‘The Deposition’. The history behind the works of art and how they came to be in the Borghese Gallery, explained by the guide, is just as intriguing as the art pieces.
