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!!!!
What a wonderful tour! Our guide Rebecca was fantastic. First, we were totally impressed that she knew each one of us by name after just a quick introduction upon check-in! She advised us accurately regarding photos, what we could carry in, and what had to be securely stored until after the gallery tour. An art historian, she made the art absolutely come alive for us. She shared the backstories of how particular pieces were acquired by the 'cardinal nephew' Scipione Borghese, and made certain that we saw all of the most important pieces in the gallerie. Rebecca knew from long experience how to organize our tour so that we had the fewest people sharing each room with us and could fully appreciate each magnificent piece. After the gallery tour, she walked with us through the grounds of the former estate, sharing details of the family's history and pointing out magnificent views. She was just a wonderful tour guide in every respect. We feel that, had we been able to secure tickets ourselves, we never would have had the fantastic experience that we had by having such an expert lead the way. We recommend this tour, and Rebecca in particular!
One of the best places I have visited in my travels and will come back too
American Mike was a fabulous guide! He knows his art history and was able to tell us the juicy, human story behind each sculptor or painting. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend!!
Luka was excellent and engaging for 19 people- knew his subjects and kept us interested and entertained. In our 4 opinion he's a rock star.
This is not a tour just a way to collect your
Ticket without waiting in line. As such it is a help
This is one of those places where if you are wanting to look on your own like we did then this is the ticket. May I suggest that you go early and take time to visit their park. It is beautiful and full of little surprises like street music and occasional children field trips! Upon our exit seeing the line we were most appreciative!
The gallery itself was amazing, however, we paid three times the ticket price for the privilege of skipping the line. Just call the gallery yourself and reserve in advance. This was so not worth it.
The Borghese is a magnificent gallery. We made full use of the two hours available to us, the works of art are exquisite. Being able to buy the ticket in advance made life easy for me, I tried using the online purchasing system for the gallery but it was tedious and the result was that I still couldn't buy the tickets.
Borghese is a MUST DO for Rome, even more so than Vatican tours. But you must buy a timed entry ticket or will not be allowed to visit.
This is a world-class museum and is a must-see if you are in Florence. Make sure you order your tickets ahead of time. It is highly recommended that you reserve a time, if possible. If you plan to see several sites in Florence, buy a Firenze Card which lets you into the most popular sites and usually without waiting in line. One last thing, be absolutely sure you wear good, comfortable shoes and can walk about a mile without much trouble.
WHAT A MUSEUM! The sculpture here really IS some of the best we have ever seen. There is a reason why this place is so popular and the works of art are, obviously, a bit part of that! The location itself is a huge public park which was very crowded on a Sunday with families and tourists strolling around or picnicking on the grounds. A beautiful green oasis, truly!
We had the audio tour which was absolutely wonderful in describing the key pieces and their history. a MUST to know about the art here.
We just loved visiting here. Very lucky to see such wonders.
This was my most favorite tour of our Italy vacation. The museum is small but the groups visiting the museum are small by design. We had the most amazing tour guide, Rebecca Bright, who was very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for the art kept everyone engaged. A great tour!
Our tour guide Andy was not only knowledgeable, his enthusiasm for the art and history was infectious. Among the best experiences we had in Rome.
This is a museum not to be missed. The sculpture alone is magnificent, not to mention the Caravaggios. Headset recommended. Also, not too crowded on a Friday afternoon.
Luca was a knowledgeable and generous guide. He was humorous and charming. We learned so many details about the works of art that we never thought of.
In a word FABULOUS! Our guide, Rebecca, was amazing. So enthusiastic, knowledgeable, funny and accommodating. One needs many hours to see all there is to see. One should be in pretty good physical health to climb the stairs at start of gallery tour. Overall, this is a not to be missed Roman experience.
Very good tour, well handled by a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide.
