Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Gain your skip-the-line entrance to the Borghese Gallery and be surrounded by pure beauty. Visit the Borghese Gallery, housed in the former Villa Borghese, the country retreat of Cardinal Scipione Borghese. He was an eager patron of Bernini and avid collector of works by Caravaggio, who is well represented by his collection of works such as "Boy with a Basket of Fruit", "St Jerome Writing", "Sick Bacchus" and others.

Other paintings worthy admiring include Titian's "Sacred and Profane Love", Raphael's "Entombment of Christ" and works by Peter Paul Rubens and Federico Barocci. The collection also features marble sculptures, world-known for their perfection such as "Rape of Proserpine", "Apollo and Daphne", "David" by Bernini and the sensual "Pauline Bonaparte" by Antonio Canova.

After visiting the museum, you will be taken for an enchanting walk through the Borghese Gardens (Villa Borghese), a park loved by all the Romans and a real oasis in the heart of the Eternal City. The tour will end with unforgettable views of Piazza del Popolo, and Rome all around, from the Pincio Terrace.
