This Private Borghese Gallery Tour is perfect for the art-loving traveler who wants to view a high concentration of amazing artwork on a shorter tour. The Borghese Gallery has an enchanting collection of artwork stemming from one of the greatest eras in art history. These works of art are not only beautiful, but also hold secrets and stories within them that must make them even more captivating!
Some people say that The Roman Guy was actually born inside the Borghese Gallery. This is because The Private Borghese Gallery Tour is one of his favorite tours, and he wants to share it with all you art and culture lovers out there!
As you look on our site, you'll notice that tours start on odd hours. This is because the gallery has set entrance times that last exactly 2 hours. We will arrange everything, including your skip the line Borghese gallery tickets and all you need to do is meet your private expert guide at the entrance for a very special journey into the life and art of some of the most brilliant artists of all time, like Caravaggio, Raphael and Bernini!
Gian Lorenzo Bernini
This spectacular gallery and former home of Cardinal Scipione Borghese could easily be described as one of the greatest collections of Baroque artwork on Earth. Gian Lorenzo Bernini has many sculptures in this museum, four of which your guide will explain in depth as they have become the focal points of the Galleria Borghese artwork collection. You will be rendered speechless upon viewing Bernini's attention to detail - creating the appearance of sweat down the back of Pluto and see-through cloth worn by Apollo. All of which was done using marble, a hammer and a variety of chisels! Genius!
Visit an entire room dedicated mostly to Caravaggio's masterpieces. See and hear about his progression as a young artist into a master of the trade. Learn about his art style "chiaroscuro" and his fascinating life, including his dark past and eventual death. You’ll even learn lesser known stories like how one of his paintings foreshadowed his demise!
Your private English-speaking local guide and expert will also show you works of art by other renowned artists like Raphael, Correggio and Titian, amongst others. The Borghese Gallery is truly one of the best pound for pound collections of art in Italy.
Join us on this Private Borghese Gallery Guided Tour for storytelling at it’s finest, and be prepared to go on a special journey through the lives of these brilliant artists and their artworks!

Amazing tour with lots of stories
This was a really cool tour of the Borghese Gallery. Our whole family loved it and our guide gave us such an in-depth exploration of the museum, it wouldn't have been the same without her. Thank you to the Roman Guy!
I was many times to Rome, but never planned ahead and therefore did not have the chance to get to Villa Borghese. However, this time I decided not to leave the city without going. So I booked this private tour and it was so worth it.
We booked a private tour of Galleria Borghese, it was brilliant. We added on the private pick-up from our hotel which was really convenient for us and the driver called our guide when we arrived which was very helpful. Our guide was lovely - very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and she put up with all our silly questions too. It's quite expensive but totally worth it - definitely a highlight of our trip.
