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.
