Full description
Meet your expert guide at the entrance and enter with pre-booked skip-the-line tickets. Due to the compact size of the museum, you have a 2-hour limit on your visit. The gallery is located in the Villa Borghese and is a must-see on your trip to Rome. Once the residence of the Borghese family, it now home to a large collection of paintings, sculptures and Roman antiquities, known to be one of the most beautiful museums in the world. See the collection of Bernini statues on the ground floor. Discover numerous paintings by Bellini, Raphael, Titian, Rubens, and Caravaggio. You will see the famous gladiator mosaic and take in the beauty of the frescoes adorning the ceiling, representing episodes from Greek and Roman mythology. All of these works belonged to Cardinal Scipione Borghese, the Pope's personal secretary, an avid art collector and the stunning gardens where he hosted lavish events. Following your visit to the gallery, take some time to walk through the park and gardens. Stroll around the temples and lakes to admire the statues and rare plants. Make sure to stop by the scenic point where you will get an incredible view of Rome.
