A visit to the Borghese Museum and Gardens is very necessary when visiting Rome. Internally it and #39;s smaller than one might perceive from its exterior-particular attention to busts and statues focused mostly on the Renaissance period. The gardens are splendid-worthy of considerable reserved time to wander.
Totally enjoyed the experience and was pleased by the professional attitude of the staff.
This tour with Rebecca B was outstanding and worth every penny. Rebecca totally engaged with her tour group, was highly knowledgeable, very likeable and brought her subject to life. I had not heard of Bernini before but I am now a fan. I cannot recommend highly enough but make sure you get Rebecca B!
Loved the Bhorgese. Getting the tickets was very smooth, just met a viator rep about 15 minutes before to pick up the tickets. She was just in front. The museum is in a park and takes some walking to get to. We didn't take a tour, just went in by ourselves.
The Borghese Gallery was one of our highlights while in Rome! A definite and #34;must see and #34; and doesn and #39;t get the attention it deserves. Bernini and #39;s sculptures are equally as impressive as Michelangelo and #39;s David.
More outstanding art work than any place I have ever been. House was amazing, grounds were amazing.
This is not a tour. It's skip the line and that is what I signed up for.
The Borghese Gallery is a marvelous collection of paintings, sculptures and decoration. It should not be missed if going to Rome. Getting there can be a bit difficult if you don't know the bus system, but there is a metro station Spagna that is reasonably close. We bought our tickets in advance for a 3:00 pm entrance the place closed at 5:00 pm. Using an auto guide was fine for us, rather than a tour.
This was excellent. They limit the number of visitors so you can view the art and really take your time. The ceilings alone are worth the price of admission. The park surrounding the Gallery was huge and also beautiful.
Our tour guide Andy enhanced the tour by his great indepth knowledge and obvious passion for the subject. All of the artwork that we saw was fabulous but the Bernini schulptors were simply astonishing, so pleased we booked through Viator as without a professional guide we would have missed so much.
We had a great guide, and totally enjoyed our day on this tour. It is a must to book in advance. Very busy place!
Ricardo was great. There's so much at the Borghese that it can't all be seen in the time allotted for the tour. He did a wonderful job paring it down to a perfect selection. He gave a sense of the significance and history of the gallery as well as the collection. The stroll through the gardens was also filled with information and great stories. He knows so much! And is a very nice guy. Recommended.
Having suffered the disappointment of not pre booking last year I booked in advance and it was so worth it! It would suggest a guided tour if you're really into art history but the info boards in each room were more than adequate.
Rebecca was charming, warm, knowledgeable, interesting, handled people and questions with grace and ease. She and Borghese were all around delightful! Rebecca brought the gallery to life- you couldn and #39;t help but love it!
Fabulous museum and park grounds in the middle of this bustling city.
The tickets were available 30 minutes before the entrance start time. Wonderful Museum!
Excellent tour with GianLuca. He was very knowledgeable and a very pleasant guide. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Borghese Gallery.
By far the Best tour I took. The guide was Perfect a masters in art history and the gallery magnificent!!!!
