Tour description

Borghese Gallery is located just outside of Rome’s ancient city walls, within walking distance from piazza di Spagna. The gallery, that takes its name from a Tuscan noble family, is imbedded in a spectacular park that represents a perfect getaway from the noise and chaos of Rome.

Galleria Borghese holds one of the most amazing art collections in the world that originates when in 1605 one of the members of the Camillo family, becomes pope with the name Paul V Borghese. As a custom upon election, the pope starts to surround himself with people he can trust such as his nephew Scipione who becomes the pope’s secretary and his right hand.

In order to exalt the power and the glory of the family the pope orders his nephew to put together a rich art collection. Scipione is avid and knows exactly what he wants and how to get it, so quickly antiques, baroque sculptures and renaissance paintings become part of this eclectic diversified collection that you can still admire today. Bernini’s breathtaking sculptures, Caravaggio’s striking paintings and Roman mosaics are just some of the art marvels that you’ll see on this unforgettable Borghese Gallery tour.
