Experience one of the world finest and most priceless art collection!

This tour is strongly recommended for the true Art Lovers constantly on a deep search for the true definition of Art and Beauty!

Located in one of the Rome's most interesting and fascinating villas, the Borghese Gallery was built at the beginning of the 16th century for the Cardinal Scipione Borghese, patron in Rome of the young Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

It houses one of the world finest and priceless fine art collection, enriched with sculptures and paintings produced by masters such as Bernini, Raphael, Caravaggio, Canova, Rubens, Caravaggio, and Titian.

We will visit the rooms admiring the Caravaggio's masterpieces with his unique use of "chiaroscuro" (darkness and light), the Canova's Paolina, the Titian's Sacred and Profane Love, the Raphael's Deposition from the cross, and the Bernini masterpieces!

Don't miss this great opportunity to be amazed by such incredible concentration of Beauty accompanied by a professional and experienced guide and art historian.
