Dmitri really brought the works of art at the gallery to life. Very serious and knowledgeable yet funny and entertaining. The collection is pretty large and you only have two hours to see everything so having an expert guide like Dmitri is a BIG plus.

Commissioned in the first quarter of 1600’s by cardinal Scipione Borghese, Borghese Gallery is one of the most important art collections in the world, and second most important in Rome after The Vatican Museums. The gallery is one of the first museum in the world to have been built to be a museum from the start, and it is home to a very impressive art collection amassed by cardinal Borghese and his uncle Pope Paul V.
Borghese Gallery is a “Little Louvre” of Rome, but without the crowds. There is a very strict ticket policy, you can only book it online, not more than 300 people are allowed inside the museum and only for a two hour period.
The gallery is home to two thousand years of arts and history; ancient mosaics, Greek and Roman statues, renaissance, high renaissance, mannerism and Baroque. Works by masters like Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Bernini, Canova, and also a large collection of paintings by northern-European artists.
Our expert guides will bring it to life for you, and will take you to the masterpieces by some of the most important and famous European artists. Be amazed by the works of Bernini who was able to make a solid object like a block of marble become dynamic, plastic and fluid. Discover the paintings by Caravaggio done using his own, impressive and unique technique called “Chiaro Scuro”, Caravaggio used highlights and shadows to put a spotlight on the main characters in his paintings. Admire works of one of the most creative, talented and influential artists in the world Raphael, and learn to read the hidden symbols in Titian’s paintings.
Some of the works are scandalous and most of them are surrounded by mystery and gossip, our guides will reveal the hidden messages in the artworks, will tell you the stories and the anecdotes behind them, and of course shed the light on complicated and sometimes twisted lives of the artists themselves.

The duration of the tour is about two and a half hours (with the check-in and the sound check)
Bags and water bottles are not allowed inside for safety reasons, so these items must be checked in as well.

My boyfriend and I really liked our tour guide. He was funny and informative. Dimitry was highly enganging in the way he shared his passion and knowledge of the stories behind each art work.
