About Borghese Gallery

The Borghese Gallery holds most of the paintings, sculptures and antiquities collected by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, who was one of Bernini's greatest patrons. The building is set within the Villa Borghese Gardens, a beautiful attraction in its own right. Showcased within the collection are some of Bernini's greatest works, such as the Apollo and Daphne, as well as a few Titian masterpieces and six major pieces by Caravaggio, including The Boy with a Basket of Fruit and the Madonna della Serpe. The gallery only permits a select number of visitors at a time, so it is advisable to book in advance.

    Despite its small size and fine pieces, almost all of Bernini's best works are here. Let's be amazed! The time limit is 2 hours and photography is not allowed. I couldn't help taking some pictures.

    Strong! Fierce! PUSH! Recommend! Perhaps the best-managed Gallery in Rome... From inside to outside, there is a high and handsome temperament. Although it's arrogant to have to make an appointment in advance + just show it for two hours, it's a good way to control the number of tourists. Think about it. When facing Apollo and Daphne, nobody crowded with you (_)_______________

    I didn't plan to go at first, but I bought Roma pass and found that the ticket price of this scenic spot was very expensive, so I came here early with the mentality of being greedy and cheap. As a result, it was a worthwhile trip. There were no more artworks in it. The outside lawn was beautiful, and I could take a small train to walk around the garden. Thank you, Borghese, for giving me a perfect winter morning memory.

    Museums are worth visiting. Don't miss them. The reporter must make an appointment first.

    My favorite museum in Rome. You have to book ahead usually, but it's well worth it. Situated in the Villa Borghese in the north of Rome, the Galleria Borghese has some amazing sculptures-the most stunning of which is Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, showing the moment where he is chasing her and she is turning into a tree to escape. The marble wafts off into delicate nothing as her arms turn into leafy branches. The first time I saw this it just stopped my world.

    The Bogsai Museum of Art does not allow photographs. Bernini's sculptures are mostly hidden here. The photos are taken in Bogsai Park. It was so hot that I didn't sleep well last night. I slept on the park bench for two hours.

    There are no Chinese interpreters and materials in the library, and only a few pages of English materials, far inferior to German, French and so on. Thanks to doing some homework beforehand. The prototype of the sculpture is Napoleon's sister, who married a prince of the Pogosai family. After the completion of the sculpture, she was too avant-garde and locked up by her husband. There is a famous photograph of Hitler and Mussolini visiting the sculpture in the history of photography. Hitler is more comfortable because of his research on art.

    After the Vatican museums, this is the most beautiful museum in Rome.
