Excellent tour! Our guide was Gianluca Farris and he was outstanding! Not only did he know everything related to the Gallery and its history, but he also gave us tips and recommendations for restaurants and other places when our tour was over. He even bough us a cappuccino!
The Borghese Gallery is a must, you can't miss it. And it's absolutely worth it to make it a private tour. You will learn and enjoy your visit so much more!

This was the most surprisingly wonderful tour we took of the many tours we took. Our guide was marvelous. If you miss this tour, you have missed one of the best


This was the most surprisingly wonderful tour we took. Our guide was marvelous and the artwork in our opinion was akin to going to the Uffizi or the Musee D'Orsey. Bernini, Michaelangelo, Caravaggio, Raphael. The Bernini's are stunning!

Our expert in art history was fantastic. In a private group you get to see more, and tailor to your interests.

Luca, our guide, was a font of detailed and entertaining information to provide history and context to what we saw. We would whole heartedly do again. The only way to experience this exquisite treasure trove of art!

Amazing and absolutely worth every cent. Our guide Maria Ludavica was very knowledgeable and even my wife who is very well versed in art history learned a great deal. A warm and wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone with even a small interest in art.

To participate in the learning of history and the artists who created such awesome paintings and sculptures was exhilarating! We had never really knew much about Bernini until this wonderful tour. Isabella was very knowledgeable and made sure that we understood what she was telling us. It was worth the long walk up to the Gallery and putting up with the rain! Do it!

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide did an outstanding job of describing the art and history of the gallery, gardens and the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo. Thank you, Harula, for a wonderful experience.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome this time around. Our guide went out of her way to make sense of the Gallery, the surrounding gardens and other galleries - and value-added by explaining the use of public transport tickets! And she was a lovely person.

We were four people and we all agreed that Isabella gave us a marvelous tour of the Borghese Gallery and Popolo Church. She is very personable and knowledgeable - a great combination. My husband and I had been to these sites several times we love Caravaggio and Bernini but Isabella gave us insights and history that we never would have known. Brava!

This was very well done. Luca is an outstanding guide for the artwork in the gallery and for the grounds of the Borghese Villa. I would highly recommend this especially as there is a limited time in the Gallery.

Great tour with Luca. He was really funny, informative, and kept our 18 year old niece interested throughout the tour.

We were met on time by Isabela. She was exceptional with her art descriptions and explanations. Be for warned that Gallery permits you only two hours, then it allows additional people in to view everything. Wonderful experience

Our tour guide Maria Ludovica Candrilli was absolutely fantastic. She has advanced degree in art history and I highly recommend anybody that takes art seriously ask for her if you are visiting the Borghese. As the daughter of an artist, I cannot say enough wonderfull things about her

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Luca, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and also friendly and entertaining. The gallery has extraordinary art and his explanations helped us appreciate the art all the more. He made the most of our time. It was a pleasure spending time with him and the art. We would happily do it again.

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)!

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.
