Gorgeous gallery with many many paintings and sculptures. I personally prefer a different (Renaissance) Era but adored the architectural features of the gallery itself.

This is my favorite place to visit while in Rome. The Bernini works and the Canova are magnificent. Of course, the grounds are lovely as well. But the treat for us this time was that they had a special exhibition of Guido Reni works. All were sublime.

Such a special museum. A smaller collection filled with treasures. Best with a guided tour! Must get tickets well in advance. Fortunately they limit the number of guests so that makes it meaningful with less distractions.

Highly recommended tour, but if you go, do spent more money on a guide. And if you have a chance to have Federico, don't miss it. I read some over time about various style and culture trends including baroque, but it never really stuck in my mind what are the difference and how actually tell one from the other (I am an accountant after all :-) ). That is until my family and friends took this tour with Federico: now I get it! The tour de force over Bernini and Caravaggio was something amazing, and works of Bernini were a revelation to myself. Federico remembered everybody's name on the tour (cca 15 people!) and interacted by name with each of us frequently - not something I have seen before - and it made the tour very personal and engaging. Even the small kids (10 and 11 years old) were engaged with fun stories, difficult to see details etc. Great job, Federico, and thank you - at least 8 people became spiritually richer due to you!

Bernini Bernini Bernini and more Bernini all in a compact space. The Borghese’s had a magnificent combination of money and taste. One of the great collections in Rome.

The pieces by Bernini are a must-see! What an amazing sculptor! The Baroque Michelangelo. I am always a fan of Caravaggio and his David beheading Goliath is breathtaking!

Wow what a collection. I had reserved this tour with a private guide, thankfully the line was not very long. The collection was huge, the guide was a must . I loved everything in the villa. the architecture, the decor, the statues, etc... My only complain was due to covid, they were limiting the amount of time you can spend in each room. We were rushed from one room to the other. There were some places we wanted to spend more time and take pictures but we were shepherded out quickly. Overall it was a great tour and I would go back again when it is a quieter season. I give it my GoldnAdvice seal of approval.

We visited the Gallery Borghese this morning. We were very fortunate to get into a guided tour of the gallery with Federico from GetYourGuide who gave us a mesmerising tour of this wonderful gallery which has to be one of the highlights of a trip to Rome. Everyone goes on about the Uffizi Museum in Florence which we have been around. However at the start of tour standing outside Federico said get ready to go around the best gallery in the world and he was not wrong. The sculptures by Bernini are simply jaw dropping and to walk in a room with not one but a dozen Caravaggio paintings just made the mind boggle. All of these amazing works of art including pieces by Raphael, Canaletto, Reubens and others are all staged in building of such luxury finish it just all makes for a wonderful two hours. As for guide Federico he really brought the whole experience to life with his deep knowledge and his brilliant ability to tell stories in immaculate English. He just made the whole thing an amazing adventure and walk back in time. My family loved every minute.

Beautiful park around villa Borghese to walk and relax. Villa Boghese is beautiful regarding paintings, sculpture and history. Visit with a private guide, it will reveal you all the history of the villa itself and the constitution of this unique patrimony
