Galleria Borghese

The Museum is hosted in a magnificent palace inside Villa Borghese, a big public park in the center of Rome.

The original sculptures and paintings in the Galleria date back to Cardinal Scipione's collection, the son of Ortensia Borghese - Paolo V's sister - and of Francesco Caffarelli, though subsequent events over the next three centuries entailing both losses and acquisition have left their mark.

Among the masterpieces there are marbles of Bernini and Canova, as well as paintings of Caravaggio, Rubens, Titian, Antonello da Messina and Correggio.

Reservation required. Ticket 13€.
