Stop At: Galleria Borghese, Piazzale del Museo Borghese 5, 00197 Rome Italy

Imagine a palace that was specifically built to house amazing works of art. Its twenty rooms are treasure troves of visual splendor: every wall holds a masterpiece, every pedestal supports exquisitely carved marble, and even the ceilings sing with divine frescoes. Well, you don’t have to imagine it because this is a description of the Galleria Borghese, Rome’s most exclusive and intimate art museum. Built in the 17th century by Cardinal Scipione Borghese specifically to house his magnificent art collection, it was once only open to royals and visiting dignitaries. Today, it lets in groups at two-hour intervals (with pre-reserved tickets) to ensure that its 20 rooms of masterpieces are never overcrowded.

Duration: 2 hours

We loved our afternoon in the gallery!! The tour did not include the Gardens, but we spent a few hours wandering around ourselves which was just lovely. If you love art you will not be disappointed!

Our guide, Irish Louise from Walks - Italy, etc, really made this visit for us. Her knowledge of and passion for the work she was explaining really shone through, and navigated us expertly to see the key works despite competition from numerous other groups and their guides.

Took this guided tour with my wife on June 11, 2019.
Our guide Felix was simply outstanding. His knowledge of Art History was extremely appreciated.
Felix has a PHD in Art History and had an unbelievable style delivering his message making everything informative and historical.
One of the best guides I have ever had.
Well done Felix.

The guide was knowledgeable about the art we saw. He was able to answer all of our questions. The group size was small making it easy to maneuver in the many galleries. He moved us against the crowds do we had time to appreciate all that we were seeing.

Museum was spectacular and Felix brought the museum pieces to life. Thank you for a great afternoon. Only disappointment was that pictures could not be taken and they had no product that was small and easily packable
