Guided tour of the Borghese Gallery and Gardens

The Borghese Villa is one of Rome's richest and most interesting villas and the Gallery houses a vast and diverse collection of sculptures and paintings produced by masters, such as Bernini, Canova, Caravaggio and Titian. It is a truly magical setting in which the beauty of the artworks, fountains and monuments combine with the rich and diverse flora of the vast surrounding park.

This guided tour covers more of the Borghese Gallery and Gardens than any other tour, giving you the opportunity to discover this beautiful area of Rome in depth with an expert and knowledgeable guide. We ensure your tour group is no bigger than 20, so that you can freely engage in the discussion of the art and discover the real stories behind the pieces with stories from your guide. This tour also allows you to skip the line with guaranteed entrance to the Borghese Gallery, which books out far in advance to the public.

This is a wonderful Rome tour if you want to see a little more of Classic Rome, including iconic works of art in a refined gallery, glorious Classic Rome architecture and manicured gardens featuring vibrant Mediterranean flowers and decadent fountains. We recommend it to couples and families visiting Rome, as well as school groups looking for an educational experience in the heart of the Eternal City.
