A little jewel in Rome
Enjoy a custom tour in one of the world’s best private collections, including sculptures by the masters Bernini and Canova, and paintings by Caravaggio and Raphael. You will never cease to be amazed! Stroll through the Villa Borghese park, known as the “green heart of Rome”.
Treat yourself to a unique and captivating experience: Visit one of Rome’s most beautiful art collections located in the Casino Borghese, a villa in which Cardinal Scipione Borghese exhibited his unique collection of paintings, antiques and statues. You will have the privilege to admire sculptures by Bernini, paintings by Caravaggio and works of art by Raphael and Tizian during a guided tour with a real Roman art historian and trained guide.
After touring the Galleria Borghese, explore the Villa Borghese park with the tour guide. A park that was established here in ancient Roman times. The modern park with plenty of green space, trees and busts of famous Italians, came into being in the 19th Century. The tree-lined paths were once (and are still today) a wonderful place for a walk. Otherwise, there is an obelisk and historic water clock to gaze at.
The guided tour ends on the lovely Pincio Terrace, where you’ll find the neoclassical landscape gardens by Giuseppe Valadier. The gardens have wide pavements along with pine trees, palm trees and evergreen bushes, and provide a fantastic view of the city, its roofs, the Piazza del Popolo and St. Peter’s Basilica.
