Traveler Tips

  • "FYI, they really encourage you to check even small/medium purses, and the line can be brutal to do that, so try to get there early if you will need to check anything." See review
  • "The tour is limited to a number of people and it is time restrictive, so it's best to show up a little early." See review
  • "Since the visit is timed for two hours, it is extremely important that you move quickly to see the entire exhibit.Our guide was extremely knowledgeable concerning the collection and was able to provide both a historical and artistic perspective." See review

Excellent Experience

The tour with Kylie of Storytelling Tours was truly excellent. She was able to seamlessly weave together information about art history, artistic techniques, cultural circumstances and political influence to make the works come alive in context. The gallery truly has masterpieces and Kylie helped us appreciate how truly spectacular they are.

The Borghese Gallery was outstanding. The tour was very informative but very restricted. When it was finished we only had 20 minutes to walk around. The collection requires more time to review after the tour.

This was our second visit to the Borghese and it exceeded expectations. Renata was an amazing guide who was able to enhance the beauty of the art with her knowledge. Highly recommended.
A very pleasant experience.

Villa Borghese might not be one of the main attractions in Rome. However, it is definitely worth a visit. Our guide was very well prepared, on time, friendly, and eager to answer all questions. We were lucky to have only 3 people in our group and this allowed us to ask more questions. We highly recommend this tour.
Great value!

This was our first tour in Rome and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. She did a great job of showing us the main attractions and navigating around the room so we could have a great view of the magnificent art. I certainly would take another tour with this company.

An Outstanding Experience!

Our small group tour of the Borghese gallery was, by far, one of the best guided tours we’ve ever taken. Our guide was vivacious, extremely knowledgeable, professional, and enthusiastic! In addition to providing, background information on the art and the artists, she added fascinating anecdotes and stories. I highly recommend this tour!
HIghlight of our Rome trip

Our guide, Pia, was outstanding. Her knowledge of the art, artifacts, and history of the palace was extremely informative. She managed the group very well, in the somewhat crowded and truncated time frame. We tried to book a tour last year a few days out and were not able to get a time. When I found out we would be returning this year, I made sure this was the first thing that I scheduled. Borghese is a can't miss gallery, if you are visiting Rome.
Great experience at the Borghese Gallery
