The Borghese Museum: One of the best museums in Rome

Posted on 16th March 2012 by

Whilst the Borghese Museum isn’t particularly large, it’s still one of the best places to go to learn about Roman history and see some of the famous artifacts. The museum is found within the former Villa Borghese Pinciana, and is a popular attraction for thousands of visitors each year.

The museum is in fact home to one of the best art collections in the whole world, so it’s also a hot spot for art lovers. You’ll be able to see some amazing sculptures and pieces of art work. One of the most popular, famous and world-renowned pieces they have to offer is the 17th century sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Tours range from between two Euros and 8 Euros, depending on your age. You should book your tickets online or over the phone before you visit, too, as this museum is particularly popular and busy throughout the year.
