    The Borghese Gallery is incredible!! Our guide brought it all to life for us, walking through each of the rooms and explaining the artists, their techniques and about specific pieces. We also got to go into the Secret Garden, which was starting to bloom! Going through a gallery that size can be overwhelming, but having a guide walk is through it with headphones on, is the best. She shared her passion with us, which is exactly what we were looking for!

    I have been 15 times to ROME, and 5 times to the Borghese Gallery - from 1980 until 2023. I know the gallery very well, with Bernini and Caravaggio and the rest - but for the first time I had to buy your GUIDE - to get in at all! But it was worth it !!!! He was the best art guide I have ever experienced! THANK TOU!

    This tour was the highlight of our trip in Rome We booked the tour because we could not get tickets to the gallery but the tour was available and we are so glad it worked out that way. Fredricho our guide was fabulous and we have never enjoyed touring an art gallery to such an extent. At the end of the tour we were fully immersed and knowledgeable about the baroque period , Bernini and Caravaggio. The tour was just the right length and hit all the highlights if the gallery. Please do not miss a chance to visit the Borghese gallery in Rome and if you can tour with Fredrico it will the icing on the cake.
