Rome: Borghese Gallery Guided Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket

1. Rome: Borghese Gallery Guided Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket

Marvel at a collection of paintings and sculptures started by Cardinal Scipione Borghese and housed in his party villa on the outskirts of 17th-century Rome with a skip-the-line ticket to the Borghese Gallery. Considered one of the most important museums in Rome, the gallery is frequently fully booked and hard to access. Skip the long lines with your pre-reserved ticket and explore the Galleria Borghese's full-of-art 20 rooms. See artifacts from antiquity, including a mosaic of gladiators from 320-330 AD that was found on the Borghese estate at Torrenova. Learn more about the powerful Borghese family and their relationship with Napoleon in the 1800s. Discover classical antiquities of the I-III centuries AD, such as the Venus Victrix sculpture and a trompe l'oeil ceiling fresco with a great 3D effect. Marvel at masterpieces such us the Paolina Borghese by Canova, paintings by Rubens and Tiziano, and many works by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. See early works by Bernini, like the Goat Amalthea with Infant Jupiter and Faun, along with his dynamic Rape of Proserpine, Apollo and Daphne, and statue of David. After the tour, enjoy a stroll outside in Villa Borghese. Relax as you walk along the tree-flanked promenades and reach the Pincio terrace for wonderful views not only over Piazza del Popolo and the Prati district, but also St Peter’s Dome, the Gianicolo, the Quirinale, Piazza Venezia, and Capitol Hill.
