Description


This small but unique museum offers a rare opportunity to see some of the world’s most impressive renaissance masterpieces in their original setting. With works by major artist such as Raphael, Bernini, Titian and Caravaggio, it is definitely worth a visit.

Join us to discover this spectacular art collection and then take a stroll in the beautiful surrounding gardens. When selecting one of our guided tours, you will be provided with an expert English-speaking guide and convenient audio headsets.

Housed in a stunning villa just outside the Porta Pinciana, the collection has been described as the “Queen of all Private Art Collections.” One of the most interesting, charming, elegant and compact art museums in Rome, the collection is neither chronologically arranged, nor very ordinate. Instead, it is a personal, lovingly matched collection that reveals the personalities and tastes of 2 people: Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the greatest of the Baroque artists; and Scipione Cardinal Borghese, the greatest art collector, who initiated the Roman Baroque.

Explore his passion for art, for which he had an infallible instinct, and his unscrupulousness in obtaining the works of art he wanted to posses. Highlights of the museum are many, but include Raffaello’s “Woman with the Unicorn,” Domenichino’s “Diana,” Botticelli’s “Madonna and Child,” and Caravaggio’s “David.”

Marvel at Bernini’s “Apollo and Daphne,” Canova’s “Paolina,” and Tiziano’s “Amor Sacro & Amor Profano.” Hear a never ending drama of untold stories about art being stolen from churches, artists being sent to jail, their workshops devastated by Borghese’s confiscations, mysterious deaths, and other stories of intrigue and passion that explain how the Baroque could sometimes cost more than life itself.

    Borghese Gallery tour purchased online were from a third party vendor & it was quite easy to know where to pick them up. Although the main ticket office was completely unhelpful in knowing where to go, we found the vendor outside the gallery. The tour was awesome and our guide very knowledgable. I would definetly recommend!

    Extremely satisfied with this great purchase. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we are very happy we took this tour. Had we gone with a ticket purchase only we would have been missed a lot of great explanations. Great value for money and time.
