I had a private tour which, while pricey, was worth every penny to me. The guide was extremely knowledgable about art, history, and the classical and religious subjects of the art. He showed me differences in the artists' styles and techniques, and I learned a great deal about Carrivagio whose astounding works are on display at the Borghese. This was a highlight of my four days in Rome.
Isabella's tour was the highlight of our trip to Rome. She was so informed and inspired by the art; her love of the Gallery came through as she told us about the beautiful pieces. What an absolute delight. She is an absolute gem (and in fact, just finished a piece of fiction on one of the paintings)!
Wonderful tour. Maria was a great guide and an amazing wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Our guide, Gianlucca Farris, made the Gallery come alive. We are now much better informed on Roman sculpture, and we have developed a new found appreciation of Baroque. This Gallery is a real gem, and no one could help us appreciate it better than Gianlucca.
The tour could not have been better! Our guide was knowledgeable and fluent, and took us to what we were interested in seeing. She even saw that we were very tired of walking (it was the last day of a long trip) and got the museum employee to open up the elevator for us to ride. Very appreciated! With a two-hour limit to visit the Galleria Borghese, we would have missed so much without her. Isabella was wonderful!
The Borghese Gallery is a must see for all interested in viewing the paintings and sculptures up close in a beautiful setting. Our guide Floriana was great, she provided exceptional insight for the works we viewed and clear she is quite knowledgeable. The tour of the gardens afterward was a great way to complete the tour experience.
This was great. My guide was informative and funny. I learned about about Baroque art history.
The art was stunning and Maria was a passionate and obviously very knowledgeable guide. She was very engaging and friendly. We were so glad that we bought this tour. It was worth every penny
We toured with our wonderful guide, Leonardo. He had so much information and 2 hours was not nearly enough. We could have spent longer enjoying his art knowledge. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants a greater depth of art understanding.
Our guide was great! She was prompt, had a real sense of timing, knew how to keep our attention and we appreciated her art expertise at the Borghese Gallery! Thank you!
I wish we could have given this 10 STARS!! It was the most incredible tour!! If you are a Lover of the Arts, or even if your Not: Our Guide MARIA LUDOVICA CANDRILLI"s Passion and Education in the arts will peak your interest and desire to learn. Definately a Highlite!!!! Thank You!!
Expensive but worth it. As you only have a specific 2 hour time slot in this Gallery having a private guide take you to (and talk about) all the art you are interested in makes a big difference. Our guide, Maria Ludovica, was very good.
excellent tour - guide very friendly nice and knowledgeable, made our visit a success. good command of english and invited a friendly interchange
This tour was outstanding!! I highly recommend it. Marie made the arts come alive.
Brita was absolutely wonderful and we would highly recommend this tour and this tour guide to others. She was knowledgeable, able to answer all our questions and delightful. Thank you.
Excellent guide who really knew his stuff. This is well worth the money and I recommend this service to anyone interested in a detailed tour by someone who is well educated and speaks perfect English. We thought we were pretty knowledgable but he made us aware of details we would have missed.
Maria was an excellent, knowledgeable guide who provided great insight regarding the artwork
Our visit to Borghese was wonderful. Our guide was excellent. I don't know how we would have seen so much of the gallery with only having two hour if we had not had a guide.
This is what the money is for. Splurge on a personal tour - you won't regret it. Skipping the security line in particular. You know you are a VIP when the staff are personal friends of your guide and treat her clients accordingly. Our guide was a PhD in art history, really insightful commentary on these renowned treasures. Unforgettable experience!
