Description

Give yourself a unique experience by visiting a magic place: one of the most beautiful art collections of Rome, housed in Casino Borghese, a Villa where Cardinal Scipione Borghese displayed his unique collection of paintings, antiquities and statues.

You will have the privilege to admire Bernini's sculptures, Caravaggio's paintings, Raphael and Titian's canvases guided by a true roman art historian and licensed guide.

The Borghese Gallery will enchant you with its inner and outer beauty! The Villa is surrounded by a park in the heart of the city of Rome, once the private park of one of the most important roman families. Note: entrance fee to the gallery is not included.

The Galleria Borghese is the astonishing expression of the roman civilization and grandeur. This tour will let you admire ancient Roman, renaissance, baroque and modern artworks all in one place: the marvelous Galleria!

Admire a 16th century collection of original sculptures and paintings. Cardinal Scipione was a collector of many works of ancient, Renaissance and contemporary art. He acquired ancient sculptures and promoted the creation of new ones, especially marble groups, to rival ancient works. You'll see the statue of Pauline Bonaparte, sculpted by Canova reclined upon a sumptuous couch. You’ll admire Cardinal Scipione's collection of paintings that consists today of hundreds of canvases including Caravaggio's "Boy with a Basket of Fruit" and "David with the Head of Goliath", Raphael's "Deposition", Titian's "Sacred and Profane Love" works, and dozens of statues both by contemporary artists of that century like Bernini and ancient Roman sculptures. This collection is not only a way to learn about Roman art history but is a time-travel through love, art, passion, power, wealth and aristocracy.

The world famous "Apollo and Daphne" by Gianlorenzo Bernini will come alive in front of your eyes, see how this genius was able to capture the moment in which the nymph Daphne was transformed into a laurel tree…

At the end of the tour you have the opportunity to walk in the same beautiful landscaped park just as Cardinal Scipione, only 5 centuries later! Please know that entrance fees are not included.
