Borghese Gallery Tour for Kids

During this walking tour, you'll travel back to 17th-century Rome to explore the magnificent art collection of Cardinal Borghese. Housed in a beautiful garden villa on the edge of Rome, our tour includes highlights by famous artists like Raphael, Bernini, Caravaggio, and Titian. Your family will learn all about the history of these masterpieces while enjoying a fun tour led by a family-friendly art historian. Even though Napoleon tried to take it all away, this incredible collection remains one of the best in Rome and the perfect place to discover the iconic artists who shaped Italian art history.

Uncover Hidden Meanings in Historic Masterpieces

Themes such as mythology and history are predominant, allowing families to draw upon their knowledge and participate in the storytelling, while our guide takes care to point out hidden details and symbols in the works. These details can aid in your understanding and identification of the meaning behind the art. In this way, our aim is to not only have your family understand the works in the Galleria Borghese but to equip you with the basics for understanding other historical art sites and museums during your travels.

Our visit to the Borghese Gallery includes advance entry tickets, allowing you to skip the general ticket office line. Although you can skip the main ticket line, there may still be a brief wait for security screening or ticket scanning. Please be aware that the museum enforces a strict limit on the number of visitors allowed at any given time, resulting in highly limited ticket availability. Consequently, some changes and reschedules may occur, and we appreciate your patience in these instances.

Please Note: From March 29th, 2024, to July 14th, 2024, the Borghese Gallery's second floor will be closed for renovation. Your expert will adapt the itinerary accordingly to include additional stops that further enrich your Borghese tour experience. Some paintings unavailable for viewing will be exhibited at Palazzo Barberini. Entrance to this exhibition will be discounted for Borghese Gallery ticket holders at €5.00. You can explore the exhibition independently using your Borghese Gallery ticket.

Explaining art and art history to kids is difficult, even more so in the afternoon after a morning of sightseeing. Gianluca was a wealth of information and did a great job of capturing the essence of the Borghese Gallery masterpieces for our group and particularly for our 9-year old. I highly recommend the tour.
Tiziana was fantastic, so knowledgeable and shared many insights. Our children (aged 7 and 10) have been talking about things she told us all day.
GianLuca was just the best!!! Supremely knowledgeable and great with the kids.
