    Gallery was fantastic, my partner studied an arts degree and all of the people she studied were on display, 400 year old statues and art works on display, if you're a lover of art and sculptures this is a must see. Tour Guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and due to our small group at the time was a very personal tour, spoke to us using our names, which, is not a big thing really, but majorly felt like one. Could not recommend highly enough

    The Borghese Gallery in my opinion is one of the finest galleries in Rome. To miss the experience when visiting Rome would be a great loss. You should always visit a galley like the Borghese with a knowledgeable guide to explain the importance and history of the individual pieces of art. The biggest part of looking at art is understating what you are looking at.

    Because of Covid we had our guide all to ourselves! If I had to pay extra for that to happen with our guide again, I would have paid. Was worth every penny. He was fully of information, loved questions, even when I’d get distracted by other works of art, he just flowed with it and kept right up. Amazing. Worth it. Will do it again next trip
