    The Borghese Gallery is amazing, and our guide did a good job although her accent was a bit difficult to understand at times. I was glad that she only gave us two hours of the two and a half hours tour: by then we were just overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of all that we saw, and our feet were also aching. Maybe a break might be useful at some point.

    This is a do not miss experience in Rome. The Bernini's housed here are the finest example of sculpture in the world IMHO. The museum is set in a nice park which is a wonderful respite from the business of Rome. The Terraza del Pincio in the park is also the best sunset view in Rome..

    This tour was extraordinary! Our guide Frederica was deeply knowledgeable, a wonderful storyteller, completely clarified what we were looking at, showed us the most important pieces and explained them all in detail. She's also a teacher, which makes sense, because she delivered all the information in such a compelling way. There's no way I could have seen the art through the same lens if I wasn't on this tour. I can see how the Borghese Gallery could be very overwhelming under different circumstances. Frederica made it one of the most special experiences of my whole trip to Italy - and I have been here for a month!
