The Borghese Gallery, Rome, situated in the spectacular Villa Borghese, houses the collection of Cardinal Scipione Borghese. It is arguably one of the most prestigious - and beautiful - small galleries in the world.
Here you'll have a chance to see some of Italy's most important paintings and sculptures, with works by Caravaggio, Bernini, Raphael and Titian as well as important classical pieces. These are skip-the-queue tickets, giving you full access for the two-hour slot reserved - it's a relatively small building and the number of visitors allowed in at any one time is strictly regulated.
If you're making a group booking and intend to use your own guide, please be sure to read the information in the section further down.
You'll have the opportunity to explore the twenty rooms of the gallery, the Bernini sculptures, the Roman mosaics, the collection of classical and neo-classical sculpture, the incredible frescoed ceilings, and the paintings by Raphael, Titian, Rubens, Caravaggio, Veronese and many more.
If there is a special exhibition running at the time of your visit then the price will reflect that, and the exhibition will be included in the ticket price paid. Please use the calendar above to check for availability.
Please note that if you are a group of more than 4 people and you are using your own tour guide, or have someone in your own group acting as a tour guide, then new Borghese Gallery regulations (as with many museums in Italy) mean there is an extra charge to pay for your group, currently 70 Euro - please contact us to arrange such a booking (such bookings are only possible with a minimum of 3 weeks notice). To be clear, this only applies if your group will have a tour guide, it does not apply to large groups without a tour guide.
Included with your tickets is an e-book guide to the Borghese Gallery, written by two prominent Italian Art Historians and available to download as epub (for iPad and iPhone, Android, and many ebook readers), mobi (for Kindle) and PDF for pretty much everything else.
