Once a country retreat, the Borghese Gallery has been attracting art lovers ever since being established in 1903. It’s located in the center of Rome, close to several other museums including the city’s National Etruscan Museum.
Twenty rooms display classical and neo-classical paintings, sculptures and other works of art, including a significant collection by the famous sculptor Bernini. Several well known artists are represented in the gallery, including Rubens, Titian, Raphael and Caravaggio; in fact, the Borghese is considered to have one of Europe’s best collections.
Surrounding the museum are the beautiful Borghese Gardens, home to almost 100 monuments and statues.
