This was an excellent tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable in art and art history. The Caravaggios and Berninis in the museum are breathtaking, and our guide did an great job of taking us to the most important paintings and sculpture there is so much to see in the museum and explaining the art and its history, as well as stories and anecdotes about the artists. The Borghese Gallery is a must for any trip to Rome, and this guided tour is the way to go in order to understand the significance of what you are seeing.

The Borghese Gallery allows a set number of guests in at any one time, and, once inside, limits the tour to two hours. The collection inside the Gallery itself is overwhelming, and having a guide is really important to optimizing your experience. Prior to entering the Gallery, out guide Andy provided us with a very good background/history on how the Gallery came into existence. He did a great job in maneuvering us around in order to minimize the congestion with other tour groups. And, he got us to see the most significant parts of the collection and gave us a terrific understanding why these artists and their work were so important. Absolutely the way to visit this Gallery!
