Overview
Much like Rome’s other cultural highlights, the Borghese Gallery attracts large crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting in line with a skip-the-line admission ticket that means less time lining up and more time enjoying masterpieces by the likes of Raffaello, Canova, and Caravaggio. Plus, you can upgrade to get the inside scoop on art history with a guide.

    Galleria Borghese
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    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.

I wish I bought it from the normal website of the museum. This company didn't even wait for 5 mins for us. There was traffic and we were a little late. They could have left our tickets at the entrance but they didn't so our money is wasted.

Response from CityWondersCS, Manager at Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery Tickets
Responded 08 Dec 2019
Dear zrekkal1, Thanks for your time to leave a comment about City Wonders. We are sorry for the inconvenience happened. City Wonders is not able to accommodate late arrivals, as in order to avail the skip the line access our tour group needs to enter at the scheduled time or the entire group will lose this benefit. We understand that travel in a foreign city can be difficult sometimes and lateness can happen, if this was your case we would have been happy to reschedule your activity for another day or to offer you some other alternatives. We invited you to contact us directly at info@citywonders.com with any relevant information. Thank you for leaving us your review once again. We hope to hear from you soon. Kind Regards Barbara City Wonders Team

The Gallery is great. Surely worth seeing the Bernini sculptures. But the Gallery tickets cost only 20 Euros. There are no lines except the ones created by those waiting to get a ticket from City Wonders folks. There is no real value without a line up, so people should only use

Dear oakvilletrek, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review about City Wonders. We are sorry you didn't find worth it the value, however we would like to reconfirm you that Borghese Gallery tickets can't be bought at the door. The tickets are very hard to find, for this reason City Wonders reserve your tickets well in advance to guarantee our clients the priority. Skip the line access is a real advantage specifically in busy days, probably the day you visited the venue wasn't crowded. Thanks again for your time. Kind regards Barbara City Wonders Team

We are good with audio tours so we paid extra for the guide. This makes a huge difference. The crowd size is limited and it was not crowded at all. After 2 hours in the museum the tour then included a long walk through the park outside. There was not a lot to see here and

This was a very worthwhile visit and much more enjoyable then the one to the Vatican! Limiting numbers and providing time limits works! Was great, much less crowded and way more relaxed then other museums without those limits. If you can only do one then this is the one. Give
