In this tour we'll visit a stunning museum in the heart of Villa Borghese Gardens, a Roman "Central Park" few steps from Piazza del Popolo.
Inside a charming palace we'll discover the private art collection of Scipione Borghese the cardinal nephew of Paul V (pope between 1605-1621).
The museum hosts works of important painters of the Italian Art, as Raphael or Caravaggio, or the statue of Pauline, sister of Napoleon, carved by the neo-Classical artist Canova.
You'll see marble masterpieces of Bernini, the Genius of the Baroque Rome. Bernini turned tears, veins and flesh into marble as you'll see wandering around the incredible and tragic "Apollo and Daphne" or staring at "Pluto and Persephone".
A slow-paced museum when you can relax and enjoy beautiful art.
