Tour Description

Immerse yourself in a world of wonderful art!

Everyone who visits Rome should ensure that the Borghese Gallery is on their “must-see” list as it's one of the most beautiful museums in the world.

Formerly the residence of the Borghese family, the gallery now houses famous masterpieces by Bernini, Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian and many more.

The Borghese is not as big as the Vatican and restrictions on numbers mean that only 360 people are allowed to enter at 2 hourly intervals. Exit is mandatory at the end of the time slot. Reservations must therefore be made well in advance, especially during the summer months.

Meet your guide out the front of the museum and enter with pre-booked admission tickets.

In the museum you will see the famous mosaic of the gladiators, a IV century mosaic showing representations of named gladiators in action. The ceilings of the museum are decorated with colourful frescoesrepresenting episodes from Greek and Roman mythology.

The Borghese Gallery is renowned for its marvellous sculptures by Bernini; Apollo & Daphne, Aeneas, Anchises and Ascanius, the Rape of Proserpina, and David are some of those on display and perhaps some of the greatest marble statues to be seen anywhere in the world.

Also on display is one of the largest collections of paintings by Caravaggio, including St. Jerome and the Young Sick Bacchus.

Following the visit to the gallery there will be time to walk through the wonderful park and gardens to see the temples, lakes, statues and rare plants. From the gardens you also have a wonderful vantage point to see a breathtaking view of Rome.

The Vatican and Sistine Chapel Tour is extremely popular so book early to avoid disappointment. Don’t hesitate to contact us for information and bookings: info@pinkumbrella.com

"We visited the Vatican with Maria after the standard closing times. It was fabolous to see the church light up at night and mostly silence in a very touristy place. The tour was well-paced and very informative. Would recommend!"
