Borghese Gallery and gardens - Skip the line tickets inlcuded - Small Group Tour

At the beginning of the 17th century, Cardinal Camillo Borghese became Pope Paul V and gifted his nephew, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, acres of land just outside the ancient Roman walls. Scipione Borghese saw this as the perfect place to construct a residence for his only real passion - his works of art. This is where the story of the "queen of all private art collections in the world" begins. In 1899 the Rothschilds wanted it, but fortunately an agreement never reached, and the three years later the Italian state would buy the residence, the collection, and the gardens. Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome.
- An experience away from standard 'ordinary' tours, a unique way of seeing the real Italy.
- Only licensed guides both fun and experienced.
