Galleria Borghese • Small Group
Live a unique experience
An experience not to be missed, the Borghese Gallery sits inside Rome’s “Central Park” (the Villa Borghese) and houses the sublime collection of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew to the 17th century Pope Paul V. The Gallery houses some of Rome’s best ancient sculpture and mosaics, alongside Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces by artists such as Raphael and Caravaggio. The centerpieces of the collection are a number of beautiful marble sculptures by Rome’s ultimate Baroque master, Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Our guide will tell you about the turbulent relationship between Bernini and the papacy, from child prodigy through popularity, disgrace and redemption. Other highlights included are Antonio Canova’s world renowned marble portrait of Pauline Bonaparte (Napoleon’s sister) and Titian’s Sacred and Profane Love.
