What to expect

The Borghese Gallery is a real gem in the heart of Rome, a museum that houses a vast collection of paintings, sculptures and frescoes by masters such as Canova, Caravaggio and Bernini. The gallery was put together by the Borghese Family, one of the wealthiest and most important families of Rome, whose line includes several cardinals and Popes. The original works of art there date back to the collection of Cardinal Scipione Borghese which primarily consists of Renaissance and Baroque art.

Discover incredible masterpieces by the greatest Italian artists and learn all about the Borghese family, which played a major role in Roman history. You will see Canova's famous sculpture of Paolina Borghese Bonaparte as Venus Victrix, other celebrated statues like Apollo and Daphne and Pluto’s Abduction of Proserpina by Bernini and beautiful paintings like Raphael's Entombment of Christ, Caravaggio's Sick Bacchus and Titian's Sacred and Profane Love.

Continue your tour discovering the Borghese Gardens, a stunning natural setting that houses beautiful fountains, monuments, gardens and flora. The heavenly Borghese Park is located north of the Spanish Steps and from there you will get a breathtaking view of Piazza del Popolo and of the entire city from the top. The area was once a vineyard until Cardinal Scipione Borghese converted it into a park.
