5 stars for the tour guide who really made the difference. The Borghese Gallery itself is worthy a visit but it is key to have a very good guide to get the best from the visit.

My first tour of the Villa Borghese. Have been there several times this added a depth to unbelievable art. The Gardens part was a waste it consisted of walking a sinfle path with no commentary to the other side of the park.

Our tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and passionate about her work.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

At first I was unsure about the guide because he appeared to be quite arrogant. However as the tour continued I came to understand that he loved his job and he was keen to get us thinking about all the information that he shared. I love the Borghese Gallery and I highly recommend that you do this tour. I've been to the gallery before but Mike brought the paintings and sculptures to life so to speak!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Guide was enthusiastic and informative. There is so much art to be seen in the galleries that one tour is not sufficient but the guide pointed out the highlights and was particularly strong on the many Bernini sculptures--not to be missed!
