One of Rome’s richest and most interesting villas, the Borghese Gallery houses a vast and diverse collection of sculptures and paintings produced by masters such as Bernini, Canova, Caravaggio, Raphael and Titian. The Borghese Gallery is truly a magical setting in which the beauty of the artwork, fountains and monuments combine with the rich and diverse flora of the vast surrounding park. In all a true pleasure for the senses.
Your guide will lead you on a walking tour through the breathtaking rooms of the Borghese Gallery and reveal the secrets, stories and techniques behind the masterpieces. Then, you will go for an enchanting walk though the Borghese Gardens (Villa Borghese) and enjoy the surprises and silence of this Eden in the heart of busy Rome, the tour ends with a breathtaking view from atop the Pincio Terrace. Please note that on tours after 7PM, the gardens are not available for tours and will be excluded from the guided portion.
Because of its strict, reservations-only ticketing policy, the Borghese Gallery can sell out far in advance, leaving many a vacationer disappointed about not being able to get in. We make sure to have extra stock on hand so that even people who decide last-minute can get in to see one of the most beautiful art collections in the world.
Due to increased security measures at many attractions some lines may form on tours with 'Skip the Line' access.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE AFTERHOURS TOURS (FROM 7PM) DO NOT INCLUDE THE GARDENS AND DURATION IS 2HRS.
We strongly advise against arriving at the meeting point without a booking as we cannot guarantee that there will be space left on the tour. Our guides are unable to accept payment for tours so any bookings made on the spot will still need to be processed over the phone with payment by credit card.
Changes made to bookings within the 72 hour window will be subject to rebooking fees to cover the cost of tickets purchased, transport, guide rescheduling, headsets and administration.
We are happy to assist with this request - availability permitting. Please contact our Customer Care Team who can check availability on the tour and take payment for the additional booking, as payment details are not saved in our system for security reasons.
