What can I expect?

Explore the Borghese Gallery & Gardens
Experience a rare treat as you wander through the vast, luxurous rooms of Cardinal Borghese’s villa, viewing these groundbreaking masterpieces in their original setting – just as the artists intended us to see them.

With his eye for beauty, the Cardinal collected an impressive collection, from a number of Caravaggio’s earlier pieces, to Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s ‘Apollo & Daphne,' Canova’s shocking ‘Pauline Bonaparte,’ and Raphael's ‘The Deposition.’

With your expert guide on hand to walk you through the collection, you’ll get the most from your visit. Set in its own vast gardens near the center of Rome, Villa Borghese is worth the visit for its architecture and setting as much as its magnificent art collection.

You’ll appreciate this on the second half of your tour when your guide leads you into the magical Villa Borghese Gardens. With its manicured lawns, fountains, lakes, and monuments, this truly is a rare oasis from the bustle of central Rome. The tour ends with a breathtaking view from the top of the Pincio Terrace overlooking Piazza del Popolo.
