I have booked the guided Tour of Galleria Borghese with OverRome a few days Ago. It turned out to be a really enjoyable experience.
First of all they take care of you with kindness and efficiency to make your access to the Museum quick and easy ( very nice feeling of being priviliged).
Then the visit is very interesting and instructive. The group is kept in small size so that you can stay very close to the guide and easily watch the artworks. The very friendly guide was very competent, you could say she knew the history of art very well by the way she easily explained complex concepts and by the way she put everything in the general context.
Also she explained us how to watch the art works and thanks to her I have noticed important details I would have never appreciated in 1000 visits on my own. www.overome.com

It is the museum I prfer in Rome. It is small but with very important pieces: a couple of Caravaggio canvas! Statues of Bernini and Canova, paintings of Antonello da Messina and Rubens..... My favourite one is Canova's Pauline Bonaparte. Once I had the chance to take part to an exhibition opening, in the orangerie just behind the main corpse of the museum. It was of the Belgian visual artist Hans Op De Beeck. The contast of its contemporary works with the ancient structure of the museum make me fall in love of both his work and this amazing place, situated inside Villa Borghese park.

It's a very grand palace with artwork displayed in an the exciting and intimate (compared with most museums) setting. So much to see from the floors to the wall and window coverings and the elaborate paintings on the ceilings. In a park, after touring the gallery you can walk through the park or rest your fit and sit on a bench in the shade.

This small but powerful musuem, sometimes referred to as the "Queen of private collections", houses Cardinal Scipione Borghese's art collection, including exquisite sculptures by Bernini. Reservations are required in advance for the date and time so don't wait till the last day of your trip and expect to get in. Also take time to walk around the gardens before or after your scheduled visit.

You'll need to book this in advance for a specific time and if you take the metro you will need to give yourself extra time to: 1) find this place, and 2) get there. You might wish to save yourself the stress of locating this from the metro and just take a taxi instead. We arrived late after finding the directional signs sparse in the park, but fortunately we were able to print our tickets from the kiosk and they still let us in. This was definitely worth the admission price.
