Visit one of Rome's richest and most interesting villas, and its stunning Gardens.


It's a stunningly beautiful pleasure-palace and one of the world's most incredible art collections.
The Gallery boasts priceless masterpieces amassed over several centuries by the Borghese family to grace their opulent summer residence in Rome.

The beautiful frescoed 17th century villa houses a vast and diverse collection of sculptures, mosaics, paintings and Greco-Roman, Renaissance and Baroque works by the greatest masters (Bernini, Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian, Canova, Rubens, etc. ) which you get to see in its original setting and decorations.

The famous Villa Borghese is a truly magical setting, surrounded by vast gardens filled with fountains, monuments and diverse flora.
So, after visiting the gallery, we will continue the tour outdoors, exploring the delightful Borghese Gardens which are amongst the most famous and beautiful in Italy.
To complete your experience, we'll end atop a panoramic terrace with stunning views over Rome, the Vatican and on one of the largest monumental squares of Rome.
