Guided tours to villa borghese and the borghese gallery with professional rome guide

Vacation RSS Feed





Rome, besides being a city rich in monuments, is also a true tourist capital with its art galleries, its magnificent historical villas and its gardens. The capital of Italy has many green areas, some of these are very large, where people can mix relax, nature, and important historical monuments. Villa Borghese, situated near the centre of Rome, is the second largest public park in the city, a large landscape garden containing a number of buildings, museums and attractions

Professional Rome Guide, leader in the guided tours sector, organises private tours of Rome, and in particular guided tours to Villa Borghese and the Borghese Gallery. These are fascinating visits exploring one of the most extraordinary art galleries in Europe, in terms of number and importance of the sculptures which it houses.

It was during Papal Rome that Villa Borghese was born, by desire of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, from whom it takes its name, nephew of Pope Paul V. It was the cardinal who decided to build a small vault, delegating the work to the architect Flaminio Ponzio, which would contain the precious treasures of the Borghese collection. In fact, inside the Borghese Gallery, there are numerous works of rare beauty; among the most important is the collection of statues of the Neapolitan sculptor and painter Gian Lorenzo Bernini, "Apollo and Daphne", "David", "Pluto and Proserpina", "Truth Revealed", "Aeneas, Anchises and Ascanius" and the wonderful paintings of Caravaggio, "Girl with a basket of fruits", "St. John the Baptist", "St. Jerome", "Our Lady of the Grooms", "David with the Head of Goliath".

A thorough visit to the Borghese Gallery will allow you to admire all these unique works and deeply understand the meaning of baroque art. The baroque, an artistic expression that matures in Rome in its monuments, churches and art collections, is an artistic language that requires a professional and competent tourist guide who can share its true meaning with the visitors. Apart from visiting the Gallery, guided tours to Villa Borghese are also recommended. It is the third largest public park in the city where you can admire a rare and unique example of an Italianate garden.
