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

The Borghese Gallery is a true gem located in a 17th-century palace. The villa, itself, is worthy of a visit for its architectural design and décor alone. By simply taking a step inside the villa, you will be left speechless by its beauty.

To help maintain the museum’s luxury and prestige, the number of travelers allowed inside at a time is limited. As a result, tickets can sometimes be hard to find and purchase. Do not worry, though, as LivTours handles everything – skip-the-line tickets are included in all of our tours. As soon as you meet your private, highly experienced guide outside of the stunning Borghese Gallery, you will enter directly into the museum. There will be no waiting in long lines.

As your Private Borghese Gallery Tour begins and you have the chance to take in the majesty of the museum, prepare to be amazed at some of the most prestigious art you are about to encounter. On the Private Borghese Gallery Tour, you will not only learn about the outstanding art, but you will also learn about the important stories behind the pieces too.

Visit the Bernini and Canova sculptures and learn from your private tour guide some of the intriguing stories behind the designs. The Borghese Gallery’s magnificent collection of sculptures includes the Apollo and Daphne, the David (by Bernini), the Ratto di Proserpina and the Paolina Borghese. Treat yourself to a private guided visit to this incredible art collection!

  • Absolutely amazing time

    Selena was an absolute joy. She was super knowledgeable about the art at the Borghese Museum and gave a lot of the backstory and history of the art . You could see her passion for what she was saying shining through and we had an absolutely amazing time with her

  • Amazing tour of amazing sculptors and paintings

    This gallery is my most favorite place in the world! Bernini's statues take your breath away -- you keep asking yourself, is that really marble?? -- it looks sooo real! The paintings are fantastic too. The decorations and afrescos in the villa are enough just in themselves. I was however VERY happy to have Giorgio with me to really give me the history and stories behind each masterpiece that we looked at. This tour was one of the best I've ever taken and definitely made my visit to the Borghese Gallery one I will always remember.
