Overview
Rome’s Borghese Gallery houses some of the world’s greatest artwork, and seeing them without a guide may mean you miss out on important details. Get the whole story on a guided tour of the Borghese Gallery, a great choice for art lovers. Skip-the-line entry saves you hours of waiting, and a group limited to 20 guarantees personalized attention. Upgrade to a private tour for undivided attention.
What to Expect
Book your desired option and greet your guide at the Borghese Gallery. Bypass the lines with your skip-the-line admission ticket, and head inside one of Rome’s most prestigious art galleries.

With your guide, you'll visit masterpieces by greats such as Bernini, Rubens, Titian, and Caravaggio. At the key paintings and sculptures, your guide sheds light on the composition, subject, style, and significance of the work, and reveal tales of its creator and some of the secrets behind it. See the Itinerary for a listing of the Borghese’s main works and its gardens.

Following your gallery tour, take a guided stroll around the formal Borghese Gardens, a tranquil park situated above Rome’s bustling Piazza del Popolo. View the fountains, statuary, and flora, and finish your tour at the Pincian terrace, absorbing its sweeping panoramas over the city’s domes, spires, and squares.

Our tour was conducted by John from Maryland and it was excellent. Wonderful job explaining the artwork, the history and the artists background. You only have 2 hours inside and it flew by!

This tour was excellent. Celia, our tour guide from City Wonders was very knowledgeable on the world’s best art work at the Borghese Gallery. I recommend the English tour since it was in the afternoon. I also recommend City Wonders.
