    Galleria Borghese
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    The Borghese Gallery is undoubtedly one of the most interesting, charming, elegant, and compact art museums in the world. It's not chronologically arranged, but is instead a very personal collection that reveals the personalities and tastes of two people: Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the greatest of Baroque artists, and Scipione Cardinal Borghese, the greatest art collector and the man who actually initiated the Roman Baroque. Borghese's collection includes works such as Raffaello's Woman with the Unicorn, Domenichino's Diana, Botticelli's Madonna and Child, Caravaggio's David, and Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, just to name a few. Behind the works are untold stories of art being stolen from churches, artists being sent to jail, workshops being devastated by Borghese's confiscations, mysterious deaths, and other innumerable stories of intrigue and passion. Borghese Gallery Tour includes but is not limited to: • The Caravaggio Room (St. Jerome, David with the Head of Goliath) • Bernini sculptures (Apollo and Daphne, David) • Canova sculpture (Pauline Bonaparte) • Works by Raphael (The Deposition, Lady with Unicorn) • Perugino (Madonna and Child) • Rubens (The Deposition) • Titian (Sacred and Profane Love)

Our tour guide Irene was a lot of fun. You could tell she had a huge passion for everything there and even more knowledge. My favorite part about the gallery was that each room kind of had its own theme, e.g. Egypt, David and Goliath, etc. The only thing I didn't like was that
