Full description
Feel like Italian nobility while visiting the palatial Borghese Gallery. On this three-hour tour, your local guide will lead you through the former residence and its manicured gardens, detailing the lives of its inhabitants and the magnificent paintings that it houses. This 17th century villa is home to works by some of Italy’s most well-known artists. Sculptures by Bernini mingle with paintings by Caravaggio, Titian and Raphael. The 22 rooms are a veritable who’s who of the Italian art world. Interestingly, many of the pieces were designed to be shown exactly where they stand today, so you’ll be retracing the steps of countless others who experienced the works throughout the centuries. Then wander the Villa Borghese Gardens, the third largest park in Rome, to discover a serene oasis of green in the center of the city. Your guide will point out the interesting details, like a 19th century hydrochronometer or the 18th century Temple of Aesculapius, while detailing the history of this green space and its 19th century redesign.
