Galleria Borghese, Rome

4.2
#1 of 150 in Museums in Rome
Galleria Borghese is housed in a villa once used for elegant private parties. The art gallery contains a substantial part of a collection of paintings and sculptures amassed by Scipione Borghese, a 17th-century cardinal and art patron. Borghese was an early benefactor of artists Caravaggio and Bernini. You can explore 20 rooms across two floors. The main floor is mostly devoted to the period between the first and the third centuries, featuring mosaics of gladiators and several sculptures. In other sections of the gallery, you can see works by such artists as Canova, Raphael, Correggio, Titian, Rubens, and Veronese. An advance ticket, which you can book on the gallery's website, is required. Our Rome trip itinerary tool makes visiting Galleria Borghese and other Rome attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Small-great treasures that enrich with scenography and atmosphere setting of Villa Borghese Park. This green lung in the capital, with charming views, water games, secret gardens, roads and paths, is on foot or by renting mini dear or rickshaw.

  • At the end of the long avenue of the Borghese Gallery, you're welcomed, in the square in front of the Casino Borghese, from two lovely twin fountains with masks, more to the bevera horses.
