Excellent Tour. Gianluca was an excellent tour guide. Excellent commentary on the outstanding art, sculpture and architecture. We followed a very well-thought-out path through the Gallery that helped explain the history of the Gallery and avoided some of the crowds. The walk through the gardens was also an unexpected plus even on a cold January day.

We loved our tour of the Borghese Gallery and the Gardens Walking Tour. Our guide was outstanding, explaining the art and sculptures in every room, making it all come alive to us. Our walk across the gardens was enjoyable as well, stopping to hear about the history of the design and horse races in the center. Our walk was in late afternoon as the sun was setting, so the light was beautiful falling through the trees onto the water fountains--really beautiful. When we arrived at the city overlook, we enjoyed a golden sunset as we looked at the many Roman neighborhoods. It was stunning and such a nice way to end our tour. I would highly recommend this tour to others.

We so enjoyed all the artwork we viewed on this very informative tour. It was made so enjoyable by our guide, Dimetri, who was so knowledgeable about the history of this gallery and the art we were viewing. He was able to impart insight regarding each piece and interpreted the artists meaning. We were able to spend time walking around each sculpture and get an intimate look at the intricacies of each piece. Things we would have overlooked as we tried to interpret each piece on our own without his vast knowledge and attention to detail would sadly have been missed. He made each piece come to life. The gardens were lovely on this fall day. One can only imagine how beautiful it would be in spring and summer.
