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


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

Museums can be overwhelming, but Dino was able to point out the highlights-as well as some important works that we never would have noticed on our own. He organized our 3 hour tour so we maximized the available time, but never felt rushed. This was our second trip to Rome, and the second time we have selected Dino as our guide-and there are still many places to explore with him on our next trip.
