Experience one of the world finest and most priceless art collection!


IMP: On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the reopening of the Borghese Gallery, the Gallery hosts a remarkable exhibition titled "Bernini Sculptor, " which runs until Feb. 4, 2018; visiting may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Located in one of the Rome's most interesting and fascinating villas, the Borghese Gallery was built at the beginning of the 16th century for the Cardinal Scipione Borghese, patron in Rome of the young Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It houses one of the world finest and priceless art collection, enriched with sculptures and paintings produced by masters such as Bernini, Raphael, Caravaggio, Canova, Rubens, Caravaggio, and Titian. We will visit the rooms admiring the Caravaggio's masterpieces with his unique use of "chiaroscuro" (darkness and light), the Canova's Paolina, the Titian's Sacred and Profane Love, the Raphael's Deposition from the cross, and the Bernini masterpieces!

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour of the Borghese Gallery was given by Dino. He was an excellent guide, familiar with the history of the art displayed in the gallery and very enthusiastic about imparting Rome's history. We were able to take advantage of the special Bernini exhibit. Dino was able to interest my 15 year old granddaughter.
