Borghese Gallery

Borghese GalleryThe stunning Borghese Gallery is set in a beautiful park in Rome’s center. It was Cardinal Scipio Borghese who in the early 1600s conceived the idea to build an art gallery to magnify his figure as patron of the arts and art collector.
Borghese Gallery is a true repository of artworks! The most influential artists from the early Renaissance to the late Baroque times are represented here: Perugino, Botticelli, Raphael, Caravaggio, Titian and Bernini, as well as an impressive collection of ancient Roman and Egyptian sculptures.

berniniScipio Borghese can be easily considered one of the first patron of the arts in a modern way, for he personally hired artists he considered worth to be patronized, influencing the taste of the times and opening Rome’s artistic art-market to unexpected novelties. The young Bernini and Caravaggio started their artistic career when they were still early in their 20’s! thanks to the attentive eye of the cardinal and his greedy passion for beauty. Experience all of this at your own pace, with the help of your guide, who will lead through the galleries, revealing you what’s behind each masterpiece.
