This was a delightful tour, led by Rebecca, who was very enthusiastic and well-informed guide.
The museum is quite large, and has more art than can be fully absorbed in the two hours that the museum allots. It seems to me that Rebecca had a choice to either highlight and add depth to selected objects, or give a "drive-by" tour of most or all of the museum.
Rebecca's choice was to highlight a limited portion of the museum, which was the correct choice in our opinion, and of all but one member of the tour. She was very well-informed and enthusiastic, adding history to the works of art, making the tour first-rate. The tour of the garden was also very enjoyable.
The one member of the tour who would have preferred a different approach chose to chastise Rebecca in front of the rest of us, which we all considered inappropriate. Rebecca, however, handled the criticism professionally and gracefully.
We highly recommend this tour of the Borghese Gallery.
