Description

Imagine a palace built especially for amazing works of art. Its twenty rooms are treasuries of visual splendour: each wall contains a masterpiece, each pedestal bears exquisitely carved marble, and even the ceilings sing with divine frescoes. Well, you don't have to imagine it, because this is a description of the Galleria Borghese, the most exclusive and intimate art museum in Rome. Built in the 17th century by Cardinal Scipione Borghese especially for his magnificent art collection, it was once only accessible to kings and dignitaries. Today the collection is rented out to groups every two hours (with pre-booked tickets) to ensure that its 20 rooms are never overcrowded with masterpieces.

Inside, your experienced English-speaking guide will lead you through the collection and show you well-known works such as Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, Rape of Proserpina and David, Caravaggio's St. John the Baptist; and Canova's Pauline Bonaparte; along with lesser-known gems such as Raphael's Lady with a Unicorn; and Bassano's The Last Supper.

On the way you can indulge in one of the rarest aesthetic pleasures: To see great art in the environment in which it should be seen. In front of public art museums the happiest people in Europe saw paintings and sculptures in their original environment and it is just fantastic.

What they often did not have was a knowledgeable English-speaking guide to help them interpret the art and give it a context. Her work brings with it an incredible passion and her guide will tell you all the background stories that give depth and nuance to each work. From the quirks of Cardinal Borghese to the heartbreaking story of Raphaels' commissioning the Deposition, this is a journey through art as you have never experienced it before
