Tour description

Borghese Gallery-
please note. the actual tour lasts two hours due to limited time imposed by museum.
Housed in the wonderful villa built by Flaminio Ponzio for the cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of the Pope Paul V, the collection is one of the best selection of 1500 and 1600 paintings you may find in Europe in a relatively small museum : Peter Paul Rubens, Sandro Botticelli, Raffaello Santi (Raphael), Tiziano Vecellio (Titian), Domenichino, Caravaggio and many others are here.
The gallery displays also four masterpieces of the baroque sculptures, an interesting collection of ancient marble statues and sarcophagi and finally the world famous "Pauline" Bonaparte-Borghese made by Canova. To us this is one of the most attractive picture gallery in Rome although the statues and the architecture itself are interesting as well.
