With this pre-booked skip-the-line Borghese Gallery ticket, you can visit one of Rome’s top art attractions without waiting in the admission queue. (Tickets often sell out a month in advance!) Housed inside Villa Borghese, the gallery is home to a renowned collection of artwork including paintings by Caravaggio and Raphael and sculptures by Bernini. When booking, select admission only to explore the gallery independently, or choose the upgrade option for a guided tour.
What to Expect
Your skip-the-line admission to the Borghese Gallery (Galleria Borghese) provides quick access to the gallery without waiting in the ticket line. Once inside, you are free to explore the collection of paintings, sculptures, antiquities and other artwork independently.

The Borghese collection includes masterpieces such as Deposition by Rubens and Pauline Bonaparte by Canova. Particular highlights include the Caravaggio room, where you can see paintings like David with the Head of Goliath, works by Raphael such as The Deposition and Lady with a Unicorn, and Bernini sculptures like Apollo and Daphne and David.

Before or after your visit, make sure you stroll around the beautiful gardens outside Villa Borghese and admire the view over Piazza del Popolo. 

Optional tour upgrade:
If you’d like to explore the gallery with expert commentary, upgrade your Borghese Gallery admission to include a 3-hour guided tour, limited to 20 people. You’ll hear about the history and stories behind various artworks and make sure you don’t miss any of the most important pieces. The tour also includes a guided walk through the Villa Borghese gardens.

A must see, just an incredible collection and location, excellent guide

Highly recommend the tour. You get 2 hours in the gallery itself and whilst you cover quite a bit you are only scratching the service. The guide was very informed and receptive to questions. The tour had a very good narrative so I came out...More

Great Museum not so great guided tour

First, let me say the museum and grounds is spectacular. Based on the reviews I decided on the guided tour; it was with City Wonders; and about $70 a person. I saw individuals at the museum with ear pieces for self-guiding; and this is probably...More

Excellent tour with Mikaela

The guide really made the experience extremely interesting and funny, No waiting in line, and switching to rooms with less people helped a lot also. Unless you are an art expert, this is the way to go to see the Borghese Gallery
