    - Don’t worry about trying to get tickets for this hot venue (where tickets always have to be purchased in advance), they’re pre-purchased and included in the price of the tour.
    - Get up close and personal with some of the most beautiful marble sculptures in existence including Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne, Rape of Proserpina, and David.
    - Admire the beauty of one of the sexiest and most scandalous women of the 18th and 19th centuries, Pauline Bonaparte, as sculpted by Canova.
    - Bask in the gritty grandeur of Caravaggio’s St. John the Baptist and David and Goliath.
    - Marvel at a peerless collection of some of history’s greatest paintings including Raphael’s The Deposition, Titian’s The Scourging of Christ and more.
    - Enjoy an intimate group of 15 people or fewer led by an expert, English-speaking guide with an immense passion for art and the stories that bring it to life.

    Visit Rome's most exclusive art museum with pre-booked Borghese Gallery tickets and one of our expert guides. Explore rooms packed with Italian masters and learn what makes their paintings part of the artistic pantheon (and what makes their stories so fascinating). Enjoy sublime works by Raphael, Bernini, Canova and Caravaggio on this once-in-a-lifetime visit.

    It's hardly a suprise that Borghese Gallery tickets are in high demand: this stunning private villa has one of the most impressive collections of Renaissance and Baroque art in the world. And even better; it's all displayed without any cordons or velvet ropes, the way it was meant to be.

    The tour is divided between paintings and sculptures, each a bona fide national treasure. You'll have your heart wrenched by the story behind Raphael's *Deposition* and marvel at the dark realism of Caravaggio's religious depictions (this museum has one of the best permanent collections of his work in the world). If marble is more your thing, you'll get an intimate look at Antonio Canova's statue of Pauline Bonaparte, which scandalized the world when it was unveiled.

    The stars of the show are the sculptures by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, whose statues of *David*, *Apollo and Daphne*, and the *Rape of Proserpina*, will drop your jaw with life-like depictions, attention to detail, and pure human emotion conjured from stone.

    Through stories, anecdotes, explanations, and even a few rumors, your guide will help you understand what makes a masterpiece and deepen your appreciation of painting and sculpture alike. Don't expect any dry lectures on form or style here, this is a close encounter with some of the world's greatest art in a setting like no other.
