An important part of the collection was begun by the wealthy Cardinal Scipione (nephew of Pope Paul V), at the beginning of XVII century He was an avid collector of Caravaggio's works, and Bernini's first sponsor. The Gallery is particularly rich in ancient Roman, Renaissance, and Baroque art and has the greatest collection of works by Bernini Each work of art is a masterpiece, like Pluto and Proserpina or Apollo and Daphne.

It is the perfect place in Rome to admire art in a stunning space without big crowds.

Itinerary

While the Vatican Museums are filled with treasures and are a must visit site in the Eternal City, it is also one of the largest and most crowded museums on the planet! But luckily Rome is full of art, some contained inside museums, some tucked away in churches, and some weathering in its piazzas.
