Full description

Visit one of the best art museums in the world on a private 2-hour tour of the Borghese Gallery, Rome. Housed in the delightful Casina Borghese, outside the walls of the 17th-century city, the museum is home to the vast Borghese collection started by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V. Scipione was a patron of Bernini and fan of Caravaggio, and both are well represented in the gallery. Among the highlights you can see are Caravaggio’s “Sick Bacchus,” and “Boy with a Basket of Fruit.” Other represented artists include Raphael, Dossi and Rubens, while the pièce de résistance is the gallery's magnificent collection of sculptures by Bernini and Canova, such as “Apollo and Daphne,” “David,” “Ratto di Proserpina,” and “Pauline Bonaparte.” The Casina Borghese is a jewel of a 17th-century villa that is worthy of a visit in itself, just for its frescoes and décor, which will further delight your senses and enhance your tour.
