This was our second time back to the Borghese but the first time with a guide -- which we would recommend for first-timers. Seth was excellent: knowledgeable, personable, and clearly passionate about art. Although the focus was, as anticipated, on Bernini, other important works also noted and explained. We enjoyed the small group experience, especially as it was easier to manage in a crowd (Christmas-New Year-Epiphany holiday time).
Our two-hour tour of the Borghese Gallery was very impressive. There are many masterpieces to see and our guide did a great job of showing us the most important in the two-hour window that the Gallery gives to all visitors. (At the end of the two hours they clear the Gallery of all visitors so that the next group can come in.)
The Borghese Gallery is a treat for the senses with an incredible selection of works by Bernini and Caravaggio, among many others. The visit was made even better because of our guide Tiberius. He is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable guide I’ve ever experienced. Definitely highly recommended and with the same guide!
The guide (Alexander I believe) was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that the visit, my second, was exceptional. The one issue is that the tour was not 3 hours but 2 hours. The other couple with us also had concerns that they had paid for a 3 hour tour and got a 2 hour tour.
This gallery if so full of art that one hardly knows where to turn or what to look at. Our guide was so full of information and answered every question we asked with knowledge and enthusiasm.
