The Galleria Borghese is the home to one of the worlds greatest art collections. The setting is chic and sophisticated. Paul V Borghese and his nephew began to commission architecture. When they confiscated the paintings from Cavalier dArpinos studio, they gained over 100 pieces of artwork. From that moment on the collection grew. Now, it is made up of ancient sculptures and mosaics as well as paintings and sculptures from the 15th to 19th centuries.
The Villa Borghese, where the gallery is based, was constructed during the 17th century on a family property. Pieces of land were purchased bit by bit to create an immense park. In the main Mariano Rossi Hall, you can view the busts of Cesar and Augustus from the 16th century. You will love the 20 frescoed rooms within the gallery that are impressive and will simply take your breath away. Furthermore, you can view 260 paintings in the storerooms of the Galleria Borghese, and it is set up like a picture gallery.
