A visual spectacle and must-see in Rome

A must-see location in Rome, the Borghese Gallery, known as the sovereign of all private art collection, was formed by Cardinal Scipione Borghese and is housed in a magnificent 17th-century villa. On this tour, you can admire masterpieces by artists such as Raphael, Caravaggio, Titian, and Bernini, among others, as well as Canova’s world-famous sculpture of Pauline Bonaparte, Napoleon’s sister.

The tour continues with a pleasant stroll through the Borghese Park and the Pincio Terrace, with its breathtaking view of Piazza del Popolo. Walking the panoramic Pincio promenade to Trinità dei Monti and descending the legendary Spanish Steps, you reach Piazza di Spagna. Upon entering the Piazza, you are taken aback by such elegance; the yellow-brownish ochre-coloured buildings and the fountain La Barcaccia help create a refined atmosphere. High-fashion brands have show-piece shops just off the area.
