1. Borghese Gallery: Tour
Enjoy entry to one of Rome’s most popular museums with a ticket to Borghese Gallery, located in the former Villa Borghese Pinciana. Tickets for the museum are limited and often sell out. Marvel at the collection that has been described as the “Queen of all Private Art Collections”. Witness one of the most interesting, charming, elegant, and compact art museums in Rome, the collection is neither chronologically arranged, nor very ordinate. Instead, it is a personal, lovingly matched collection that reveals the personalities and tastes of 2 people: Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the greatest of the Baroque artists; and Scipione Cardinal Borghese, the greatest art collector, who initiated the Roman Baroque. Particular highlights include the "Caravaggio Room," where you can see paintings like "David with the Head of Goliath." Admire works by Raphael, such as "The Deposition and Lady with a Unicorn," along with sculptures by Bernini, such as his "Apollo and Daphne" and "David." Take a stroll around the beautiful gardens of the Villa Borghese, and take in the view over Piazza del Popolo.
