Admire the height of Renaissance art in the center of Rome with these fast-track Borghese Gallery tickets. Once the private collection of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, whose bust you’ll find carved in intricate detail inside, the museum hosts masterpieces by pioneering artists like Caravaggio and Bernini.
Discover the dramatic chiaroscuro of Caravaggio in paintings such as Saint Jerome Writing and Boy with a Basket of Fruit, and see Bernini’s more dynamic take on David.
You’ll find other Italian heavyweights inside, like Raphael, Titian, and Lorenzo Lotto. Dutch and Flemish masters are here too, so make sure to stop and see the details in Peter Paul Rubens’ Susanna and the Elders.
Alongside its Renaissance masterpieces, the museum is also home to objects dating back to Antiquity, ranging from the first to third centuries AD. Don’t forget to crane your neck toward the Borghese Gallery’s frescoed ceilings – this is one of the most impressive interiors in the city.
