    Description

    Skip the long lines to one of Rome’s most popular museums on a guided tour of the Museo e Galleria Borghese (Borghese Gallery). Housed in a stunning villa just outside Porta Pinciana, the collection has been described as the “queen of all private art collections.”

    One of the most interesting, charming, elegant and compact art museums in Rome, the collection is not arranged chronologically. Instead, it is a lovingly matched collection that reveals the personalities and tastes of 2 people: Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the greatest of the Baroque artists; and Scipione Cardinal Borghese, the greatest art collector, who initiated the Roman Baroque. Highlights of the museum include Raffaello’s “Woman with the Unicorn,” Domenichino’s “Diana,” Botticelli’s “Madonna and Child,” and Caravaggio’s “David.”

    You can also marvel at Bernini’s “Apollo and Daphne,” Canova’s “Paolina,” and Tiziano’s “Amor Sacro & Amor Profano.” Hear untold stories about art being stolen from churches, artists being sent to jail, their workshops devastated by Borghese’s confiscations, mysterious deaths, and other stories of intrigue and passion that explain how the Baroque could sometimes cost more than life itself.
