Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

The Borghese Gallery is located in a beautiful villa in one of Rome’s largest parks, which was commissioned by the nephew of Pope Paul V, the Cardinal Scipione Borghese, in the early 17th century. It was used to house his impressive art collection. Stand in front of the Galleria Borghese and be amazed at the architectural wonder that it is.

You will enter the Borghese Gallery at a time when the museum is generally less crowded – a decision LivTours has made to optimize your visit. LivTours Borghese Gallery tour will give you a comprehensive overview of centuries of Italian art from marble sculptures, frescoes, mosaics, and paintings, all in one tour.

There is quite a demand to visit this luxurious Gallery. Ticket availability is extremely limited and it can be difficult to purchase tickets last minute. LivTours will take care of the logistics while you just need to enjoy the centuries of art this museum holds. Show up on the day of your tour and head directly inside the museum with us, without any waiting in line.

Your passionate guide will share secret stories and facts about the artists and their pieces that you can only learn with a professional, local guide by your side. Take your time to admire works such as Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne statue, Caravaggio’s famous depiction of David with Goliath’s Head, and Raphael’s stunning The Deposition.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.




  • LivItaly tours. The best!

    We were so pleased with all of the small tours that we did with LivItaly. We didn't have to wait to gain entry anywhere, and all of our guides, with their art history and/or archeological backgrounds, were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Rome and their subject areas. On the Borghese Gallery tour, our guide Gio brought the art and scuptors alive and made our visit particularly memorable. I have been to Rome many times, and these tours are by far the best that I have experienced. Thanks LivItaly!

  • Borghese Gallery tour

    We decided to see the Borghese Gallery with a guide in order to get the most out of our visit. Dario was just a fantastic tour guide and we felt very lucky to have spent the morning with him. Great personality and very knowledgable and we felt we were really able to appreciate the wonderful art and sculptures in this fabulous gallery ! We had taken several small group tours during the week and all were good but Dario made this tour the very best. Thanks Dario

  • Borghese gallery tour

    Our guide, Babara from LivItaly Tours, was fantastic. The five of us agreed that she made our trip to the Borghese Gallery much more interesting and enjoyable than if we had tried to do it on our own. Barbara is very personable and knowledgable and we would highly recommend her. Grazie, Barbara!

  • Borghese Gallery tour

    Gia was a fabulous guide on our tour of the Borghese Gallery. She was knowledgeable and passionate about the art we viewed and shared all sorts of insights that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. I would highly recommend visiting the Gallery with a guide and, if you can, ask for Gia.
