    This was a two hour tour of the Borghese museum it flew by - our tour guide, was so entertaining and well informed. I can honestly say it was one of the most interesting, informative and entertaining tours I have ever had of a museum. Lots of interesting stories, anecdotes, and behind the scenes info. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Totally worth while.

    Massimo was THE BEST! Very informative, smiling, giving the visitors the best time (especially as you can't stay as much as you want in the gallery) and VERY funny :-) I read reviews on other experiences in different sites and sometimes people complain about the heavy Italian accent and not being able to understand. There was no such problem here. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide, not only for the gallery but on his other tours. I took his card, so you're welcome to check it out: www.storytellingrome.com Enjoy! :-)

    Barbara showed us the most magnificent paintings and sculptures in the Borghese Gallery and told us the stories behind them to create perspective and understanding. This was the best museum experience we have ever had. All visitors to the Borghese Gallery are only allowed two hours to visit, whether with a guide or not, so an expert guided tour makes the most of your time. After the two hour gallery tour, Barbara walked us through the Borghese Garden and pointed out places of interest along the way. We finished at a terrace overlooking Piazza Popolo with a beautiful view of Rome.
