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. 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.
