“Our tour guide was Lindy. I cannot say enough good things about her. The tour guide makes it or breaks it. Lindy is a bright, energetic, and passionate young woman who knows her stuff.

What To Expect
One of Rome's richest and most interesting villas, the Borghese Gallery houses a vast and diverse collection of sculptures and paintings produced by masters such as Bernini, Canova, Caravaggio and Titian. Truly a magical setting in which the beauty of the artworks, fountains and monuments commune with the rich and diverse flora of the vast surrounding park. In all a true pleasure for the senses.
Your guide will lead you through the breathtaking rooms of the Borghese Gallery and reveal the secrets, stories and techniques behind the masterpieces. Then, you will go for an enchanting walk though the Borghese Gardens and enjoy the surprises and silence of this Eden in the heart of busy Rome.
