Couldnt be better
Sep. 2019
Our first time to Villa Borghese. Although our tour was rather expensive, and a few too many people, our guide was terrific. Passionate about his subject, and brought the history to life. Although the rooms and exhibits were so wonderful it made his job look easy.
Our only issue was we included hotel pick-up. On time and really nice car, but driver did not know exactly where to meet our guide! Found him in the end. We had expected that a return trip back to hotel would have been automatically included.

Jul. 2019
We arranged this tour through our hotel the day before and would never have been able to see the gallery otherwise because of the rebooking requirements. Our guide Alex was fantastic - so knowledgeable and made us understand and appreciate the works of art in a way we would never get on our own. Our group was just our family of four (including two teenagers) and one other person. Alex did a great job of keeping my 13 year old son engaged. My only complaint was we had to go very fast and still didn’t see the whole gallery (but this is due to the time slot limitations of the gallery itself) and didn’t get to see the actual gardens of the gallery. The park the gallery is located in is nice to explore and a break from the normal crazy crowds of Rome. You should know that you can’t take any purses or backpacks in to the gallery and you must check everything in a storage area that is manned behind a counter but is just cubbies and not locked. This was unexpected and felt quite unnerving to leave our stuff, but it all worked out fine.

Fantastic small group tour led by Francesca
Jun. 2019
Galleria Borghese was maybe our favorite stop in Rome and that was in large part due to the wonderful tour provided by Francesca. She provided great insight about the artwork in the museum and Rome's history in general. After the official tour of the museum she continued to walk part of the Villa Borghese with us and made several recommendations for the park and Rome in general. Francesca's tour and hands on approach definitely made a wonderful experience into an unforgettable one.

May 2019 • Couples
We did this tour with guide Francesca Calvani a week ago - wow, what a good choice and good luck. We have been to Italy now 5 times in May, and each time take a few small group tours to see important galleries or archaeology sites. Without any doubt in my mind, Francesca is the most engaging passionate guide I have struck in my many years of travel. We found her insights fascinating and informative, and the 3 hours tour of the Borghese and gardens was over too soon! Given the difficulty getting general admission tickets to the Borghese, with only a day left in Rome we decided to pay the extra and do this tour on our last day. How lucky was that!
Just brilliant - many thanks.

Excellent Tour from a Knowledgeable Art Historian
Apr. 2019 • Couples
We loved this tour and our guide! She gave us a very comprehensive tour of the Borghese Gallery, with lots of great information about Bernini and Caravaggio (who she apparently specialized in during school). I am a volunteer guide at the Seattle Art Museum so I can fully appreciate what a great job she did!

Tour of Borghese Gallery
Nov. 2018 • Couples
We toured the Borghese Gallery on Nov 18 with Isotta Inzirillo as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and a very down to earth great guide especially for those of us learning about Italian art & sculpture. She kept the tour inside the gallery to 2 hours but gave us interesting history about the building outside in the gardens. This is an excellent tour and should not be missed if in Rome. The gallery, the house, and the park are wonderful and located in a beautiful park of the city!! Thank you Isotta for enlightening us!

We knew that visits to the Borghese were limited to 2 hours as the gallery is quite small and can be busy. As we wanted to make the most of that time so we booked this semi-private tour to ensure that we saw the most important pieces. This tour focuses on Caravaggio and Bernini. It turned into a private your as the other couple who booked didn't arrive! This meant that our brilliant guide (Alex) was able to concentrate on just ourselves. As an artist he was able to give insights on technique and how to look at the paintings and sculpture. This visit was one of the highlights of our Rome trip as we'd not managed to get to the gallery before. Alex was a wonderful guide and this was an afternoon well spent. He apologised for his poor English which was actually very good indeed! Even with a guide we never saw everything, although small this is one of the best collections in Italy, not just Rome. Space and numbers mean that you can only spend 2 hours here per visit.....we will be back to see the other exhibits next time.

Great Tour!
We did the semi-private Borghese Gallery tour with Francesca and it was excellent. She did a great job explaining the history of the Borghese family, its papal connections, and the art in a easy to understand, lively and engaging way. Well worth the time and money. We highly recommend this tour.
