The Borghese Gallery, with its splendid gardens, paintings, and sculptures, hosts one of the most important collections of art in Rome dating from the 15th to the 18th century.

Lose yourself in the museum's 20 rooms: admire the most famous sculptures by Bernini such as 'Apollo and Daphne', 'David' and 'The Rape of Proserpina'. Contemplate the sensuality of Canova's 'Paolina Bonaparte', the solemnity of Raphael's 'The Deposition of Christ', the beauty of Titian's 'Sacred and Profane Love' and the portrait 'Young Sick Bacchus' by Caravaggio.
