    This was a great guided tour with historical commentary by the guide, Marco. Time slots are limited to two hours, so another visit would be needed to see everything in more detail, but this was a great introduction and the history was fun to hear and brought the art to life.

    Because the museum limits the # of guests, the rooms were not very crowded and we were able to spend time listening to our guide explain the important works. He was very knowledgeable and funny at times. He included us in his commentary by asking us our names and started some of his commentary with a little light-hearted quiz.

    Really enjoyed our trip to the Borghese Gallery! Tour guide extremely knowledgeable. Was super nice, even when another person on the tour kept challenging her knowledge. I loved the description and explanations about the art work and would highly recommend. It was a last minute choice and so glad we did it!
