Learn More with our Expert Guides

Other tours visit the Borghese Gallery and Gardens but none give you such a vast breadth of knowledge like the all-encompassing experience we offer. Many tourists miss this one-of-a-kind villa, its gardens and the incredible artwork it houses. But we’ll make sure you see every important detail as your private expert English-speaking guide brings its rich history to life. Going it alone, you risk entry tickets selling out (as they often do), or even missing your pre-booked entry time – which can be both disappointing and upsetting. We have this covered seamlessly with pre-purchased tickets and skip-the-line entrance. You don’t have to worry about a thing.

Discover the Art that Shaped Rome

Cardinal Scipione Borghese was a dedicated art patron. His keen eye for everlasting talent led to commissions of such artistic significance that many of the painters and sculptors of his time became the masters we know and love today. This is your rare chance to see these works as they were intended in their original settings, including: Raphael’s ‘The Deposition,’ Bernini’s ‘Apollo and Daphne,’ ‘Pauline Bonaparte’ by Canova and early pieces from Caravaggio, among others.

Equally as incredible as the art and lavish living spaces of the Borghese Gallery itself, the architectural style of the Renaissance villa and the gardens which surround it are also quite spectacular. Manicured lawns, bubbling fountains, towering monuments - although in the center of bustling Rome, the serenity of this space makes you feel like you are miles away from the city streets.

Enjoy the View from Pincio Terrace

Your tour will conclude at the top of the Pincio Terrace where you’ll enjoy a sweeping view over Piazza del Popolo, the historic center of Rome and the Dome of St. Peter's. It’s one of the Eternal City's most evocative sights and a great climax to the tour.
