    Super fine guide. Explained everything down to the last detail. She taught me a different way of looking at statues. This allows you to better interpret the storyline behind a painting or statue. The gardens were less so. Together with the tour guide we took a walk through the gardens, but there was not much to see. Lots of greenery and a lot of things were closed due to work.

    The tour was very nice. Villa Borghese contains beautiful sculptures and paintings and is situated in a nice park. The guide had a perfect English accent (American) and had more knowledge about the art than you can expect. She was very friendly and willing to answer any questions. The guide really managed to capture my interest and with her enthusiasm my attention. She also took us on a nice walk through the park afterwards

    This is an art lover’s tour. Every room and level of the Gallery is full of sculptures, paintings, frescoes, mosaics and architectural features. Our guide led us through many spaces and highlighted a large number of works, not only giving information on each piece but also showing us how to notice details and themes we could apply to other works on our own.
