Embark on an exquisite journey through the Galleria Borghese, heralded as the crown jewel of private art collections. 

This remarkable 17th-century collection showcases an array of Renaissance and Baroque paintings, alongside ancient Roman and modern sculptures, all masterfully curated by the influential Cardinal Scipione Borghese

Begin your tour on the top floor, where you'll be captivated by masterpieces from Raphael, Titian, Botticelli, and Perugino, as well as a selection of Roman and modern sculptures and sarcophagi. 

Descend to the first floor to uncover the fascinating tales behind Bernini's statues and marvel at six of Caravaggio's breathtaking masterpieces—a testament to Cardinal Borghese's determination, who even resorted to blackmailing the painter Cavalier D’Arpino to secure two of these iconic works in the 17th century. 

Conclude your visit with a leisurely stroll through the lush gardens of the Casino Borghese, making your way toward the historic Via Veneto.
