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.
Please note: Villa Borghese Gardens will not be visited on the 7pm tour.

The tour was very good. Our guide was knowledgeable. The tour included visualization of the current Picasso exhibit. We saw the highlights of the borghese museum. Then had a refreshing walk through the gardens.

This gallery only allows groups in for two hours at a time, then the museum is emptied for the next groups. If your tour ends before the 2 hours is up, you can still walk around (but our tour took the whole two hours).

I did the tour during the summer in the month of August. You may want to contact the tour company for seasonal tour information. Sorry!
