Alessandro was an amazing guide who learnt the names of the entire group in minutes. I was impressed! His knowledge and passion for the gallery and everything inside it was a delight to witness. I was thoroughly captivated. An absolute must do while visiting Rome. Borghese park is gorgeous too and well worth a wander.

The proper way to take in this absolutely stunning collection
Stephen_C

A small tour is essential to properly appreciate the works within this museum. Our guide was efficient, erudite and concise. She provided compelling history and context for the major pieces in the collection and answered all of our questions. This museum contains numerous major works, and since entry is carefully managed it is wise to get skip the line admission. I doubt I will return to the Vatican Museums on my next trip to Rome, but I will make a point to return to the Borghese Gallery. Each room contains a new revelation- both in the collections and the gallery spaces themselves. The art is exceptional, and the frescoes and mosaics adorning the walls, ceilings and floors are opulent.

Best Museum in Rome, knowledgeable guide

My favorite museum in Rome! So much packed into such a small space. It's like a highlights reel. If you are only able to go to one museum this is the one. Guide had positive energy, very knowledgeable and made good use of the time. Got into details that helped bring more context to the art, artists, and Scipione Borghese

The museum was absolutely beautiful and our guide, Christina, beautiful herself almost took on the persona of an historical Roman. She was dramatic and intriguing, bringing the art, myths and stories to life in a wonderful way. My best museum experience ever! Top notch art, plenty big enough but not overwhelming. Loved it!

This is a great option to see the Gallery. You must have a ticket in advance. The guide had a lot of enthusiasm and great information, especially if you want all the details of the art, artists, and stories. The sculptures and st Jerome painting were amazing. The only negative is I really struggled to understand the English of the guide. And I personally didn't need as much time and explanation in each room. We decided to move ahead at our own pace toward the end.

Our best tour in Europe so far. Our guide (Martio? I’m probably getting it wrong but it started with an M) was immensely knowledgeable and knew so much about everything. He was also humorous and selected a route through the gallery that showed us the best highlights. This was cheaper than other tours we looked at, and I can’t imagine they could have been better. Excellent tour, excellent value! This tour guide deserves a raise.

This was a great tour option! Our guide was knowledgeable and didn’t rush through the gallery. You could also walk around without the guide and/or leave early if wanted. It was great!

Get the tour tickets sold out for the day by 11:00 am without the tour or pre buy tickets would have been disappointing. The tour guide was Excellent she spoke clearly and we had headsets to easily hear the guide describing each of the selected words. Definitely recommend this tour.
