Did you know that Caravaggio once killed a man, or that Bernini believed he peaked in his 20s? Insights like these into the great artists' lives are the focus of this Borghese Gallery tour, which peers beyond the art itself into the world and minds of the people behind the pieces.

When you skip the line to step into the Borghese Gallery, the first thing to notice is the tranquility. Set in the former home of 17th-century cardinal Scipione Borghese, the gallery only permits entrance to a select number of visitors each day. Your pre-reserved passes give you a designated time slot for a look at this exclusive collection.

Together with an expert art historian, you can see works by a number of renowned artists, such as Caravaggio's David and Goliath and St John the Baptist, Anthony Canova's Pauline Bonaparte, Raphael's The Deposition and Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, The Rape of Proserpina and David. Many of the works were commissioned specifically for this space, and the collection offers one of the most incredible experiences for lovers of art in Rome.
