Borghese Gallery Tour Description

The Borghese Gallery Tour is perfect for those who have an appreciation of fine art. Join our expert private guide and tour with the company with the finest qualified guides available and not only will you skip the line with our guide, but you will also be privy to all of the most interesting and relevant information about the masterpieces before you.

Pass through the lush Borghese gardens romanticized by the poetic genius of late 19th Century and in so doing be transported back to an age of beauty and inspiration, as we take you to Rome’s most famous villa, housing one of the world’s richest private collections of art.

Passing from room to room you will move from the Baroque sculpted masterpieces of Gian Lorenzo Bernini to the breathtaking drama in the chiaroscuro paintings of Caravaggio. Admire the works of masters of the likes of Raphael, Titian, and Rubens enhanced by the stucco works and frescoes decorating the Villa commissioned by Cardinal Scipione Borghese so as to house a selection of the family’s collection.

Not only will you learn of the rich mythological themes portrayed and the artistic techniques used to manifest them but you will also feel the historic weight the Napoleonic age push against the monolithic stone ideals of Rome’s great neo-classic sculptor Canova.

Finally we will stroll through the elegance and calming silence of the Gardens on our way to enjoy the spectacular views from the Pincio terrace. There we too can share in the inspirations of their age that we may aspire for our own.


Highlights of this tour include:
  • Masterpieces of Bernini
  • Masterpieces of Canova
  • Masterpieces of Raphael
  • Masterpieces of Rubens
  • Masterpieces of Caravaggio
  • Masterpieces of Titian
  • Masterpieces of Botticelli

Our Guides Were Wonderful.

Both James and Isabella were wonderful guides on our tours. They were very knowledgeable and made the experience more meaningful. My husband and I will definitely recommend Eternal City tours to anyone who is visiting.

Holy Doors Jubilee tour

Our tour guide was Blitch Vizioli...what an amazing man...the tour was everything we had hoped for...we travelled from Australia to come to Rome for this trip of a life to time to experience the Jubilee of Mercy and the Closing of the Holy Doors of the Basilica of St. Peter's...nothing was too much for Blitch..he was well versed in the Catholic faith...no questions were out of his depth he went above and beyond to ensure that no stone was left unturned...spiritually this tour was everything and then much more because of his efforts...this day was the highlight of our trip...he exceeded our expectations by supplying us with tickets to the mass on Sunday that he obtained from the Swiss guards ...we are truly in his debt..thank you again I would have no hesitations in dealing with this company on future tours...absolutely amazing

6/5 Stars!

Nothing too much can be said of this company. When everything is just so perfect. I am quite a particular traveller. I like things to go MY way. Eternal did exactly just that. I wanted to have a fully custom, fully flexible tour, they provided it. They sent two super knowledgable guides, that followed our pace. Often tour are very single dimension. They talk you listen, I guess bcs of my small sized group it became they talk, I ask, they answer. Tom replied my emails super fast too! I like that. I feel that I am being taken care of. Like the title says: 6 of 5 stars. To other Travellers, look no more, these are the right guides for Rome and the Vatican.

Like Having a Personalized High Quality PBS Tour

We booked a Tour that included a visit to all four major basilicas. Our guide was James Good and my wife and I were absolutely delighted and thrilled with the quality, care and professionalism we experienced with Eternal City Tours. James was extremely knowledgeable and more importantly was very friendly and personable throughout the tour. As someone who lives in Rome, he shared not only his encyclopedic knowledge of the basilicas but also insights to living in Rome. We made a coffee stop at Panella l'Arte del Pane where we were treated like friends hanks to a James' connections. He also gave us a number of very useful recommendations to improve our visit and stay in Rome. We enjoyed spending time with him and commend Eternal City Tours for delivering on their promise of a high quality experience.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

The best way to see Rome

Having been to Rome a few times before, our group was looking to tour Villa D'Este, Hadrian's Villa and the Catacombs of St. Callixtus with guides who offered a truly Christian perspective. And this is exactly what we found with Eternal City Tours.
Our group of 10 came from diverse backgrounds, but everyone was riveted by the fountains of information flowing in our direction.Our guides, Blitch and James were not only marvelously well-informed and passionate, they were also extremely patient!
I strongly recommend Eternal City Tours for those who want to delve more deeply into the wonders of Rome.

Chad was the best we've ever had!

Chad Deffler was the best guide we have ever had. We have traveled quite a lot in recent years and used a lot of guides. Chad was able to explain and answer all questions with absolute accuracy and clarity. His knowledge of Rome, religious history, and philosophy was incredible. All this was done in a manner that kept the tour interesting.

Our guide Matthew was fantastic!

Hello,
Holy Doors Tour - 26th September 2016
Our guide Matthew was fantastic. He went the extra mile to explain and show us everything.
He didn't rush us and gave us ample opportunity to ask questions.
Many thanks to him, Tour of the Holy Doors was our reason to visit Rome and he made it all worthwhile.
We will definitely book with Eternal City tours again and request Matthew to be our Guide.
One in a million. Please let him know we appreciated his company and knowledge and hope to meet him again with Eternal City Tours.
