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.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and all the artwork amazing. This is a relatively small gallery so you don't feel overwhelmed, but mesmerized non the less.
