Private Tour of Villa Borghese and Gallery
The tour will be starting in Borghese Gallery, where we will visit the old house of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, transformed into a splendid art museum with all the most important sculptures by Bernini. Then will continue to admire Villa Borghese which is a landscape garden in Rome, containing a number of buildings, museums (Galleria Borghese), and attractions. It is the third-largest public park in Rome (80 hectares or 197.7 acres) after the ones of the Villa Doria Pamphili and Villa Ada. The gardens were developed for the Villa Borghese Pinciana ("Borghese villa on the Pincian Hill"), built by the architect Flaminio Ponzio, developing sketches by Scipione Borghese, who used it as a Suburban villa, a party villa, at the edge of Rome, and to house his art collection. The gardens as they are now were remade in the late 18th century. Be ready to get some fresh air and let your guide tell you everything you need to know about Villa Borghese and Gallery.
