Any true art-lover visiting Rome simply cannot miss out on this treasure trove of Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces. Drawn from the collection assembled by Cardinal Scipione Borghese in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, the Borghese Gallery includes major works by Raphael, Rubens, Titian, Caravaggio, and Canova.

Set amongst Roman period treasures such as mosaics showing gladiatorial combat and busts of the emperors are the stunning early sculptures of Bernini, such as his famed David and the breath-taking Daphne and Apollo, created especially for the Cardinal, the first major patron of the promising young artist.

The collection is housed in the Villa or “casino”, built between 1613 and 1616 on the Cardinal’s landscaped country estate, now one of the largest public parks in Rome. The remarkable architecture and opulent decoration of the gallery create the perfect setting to discover one of Italy’s greatest art collections. And because, the Borghese Gallery admits only 360 lucky visitors at once every two hours this quaint museum is never too crowded!
