Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
A world renowned art gallery and a hot-spot for tourism in Rome, the Borghese Gallery is situated in what used to be the Villa Borghese Pinciana. The building of the gallery was clubbed with the gardens around it at first. The gardens, however, have become a separate attraction for tourists by itself.
The Borghese Gallery in Rome has preserved intricate sculptures, mosaics and reliefs, and life-like paintings all the way from the fifteenth century to the eighteenth century, during the Renaissance. The collection it houses was initially made by Cardinal Scipione Borghese during the start of the seventeenth century. This collection comprises some of the greatest works of art from masters such as Giovanni Bellini, Tiziano, Antonello da Messina, Caravaggio, Correggio, Raffaello, and aesthetic sculptures by Canova and Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
One of the most tiring aspects of discovering a new place as a tourist is definitely the queues. With this ticket, regardless of how long the queue is, you can skip it and get right to the attraction. Explore the vast collection of sculptures, paintings, and antiquities at your own pace, right from the start.
As you enter the museum, you are likely to notice the magnificent marble sculptures of the Twelve Roman Emperors. A vast array of rare paintings adorn much of the wall. Daphne, and Proserpina are intricate and expressive. You could gaze at these sculptures for days and still miss out on the finer expressive details. The rooms are rarely ever crowded due to the controlled inflow of visitors, giving you ample space to stroll around the museum and contemplate the great works of art.

It was a good experience. I booked this along with the rest of my Rome tickets. The suggestions on the website make it easy to plan the entire itinerary.
Skipped the line waiting outside with the pre-booked ticket. Something satisfying about not waiting.
Unless you’re a fan of old school art there’s nothing much to it. Good building though.
