Rome conquered Egypt by its army, but Egypt conquered Rome…
One of the most important art galleries in Rome,Galleria Borghese houses part of the Borghese collection of paintings ,sculptures and antiquities.
The museum is located inside a suggestive landscape garden,Villa borghese,the largest park in Rome after Villa Doria Pamphili and Villa Ada, surely the nearest to an ideal of eternal beautiness as the number of buildings,museums, and attractions that it contains.Also in Villa borghese or nearby you will find the Galleria Nazionale d’arte moderna,Villa Giulia,Villa Medici,Casa del Cinema.
As regards the Galleria Borghese, here you can admire some of the most important creations by Antonello da Messina,Giovanni Bellini, Raffaello,Tiziano,Correggio,Gian Lorenzo Bernini,Canova,Caravaggio.On my opinion, among all the famous works that are inside its twenty rooms,some sculptures of Bernini are worth to be seen for theirs dynamism and for the virtuosism,such as his Apollo and Dafne. If you are an art lover you must visit at least once in your life Galleria Borghese and from december 2011 for three months 65
masterpieces given by Camillo Borghese to Napoleon in 1807 will return in Rome and be replaced inside the gallery. It’s an event not to be missed, and our hotel will be pleased to accomodate you in Rome!
