Family Treasure Hunt in Rome

Join your tour guide for a family treasure hunt in Rome among the magnificent animal sculptures that dot the glorious gardens of the Galleria Borghese. Each clue leads from statue to statue, making it a memorable and lighthearted way for families to enjoy some of the Eternal City’s timeless art. Sparkling fountains, spacious lawns, and an enchanting lake situated among tree-lined walkways will refresh the senses before your visit to the renowned Borghese Gallery. You will also see how Cardinal Scipione Borhgese, nephew of Pope Paul V, used the Villa Borhgese and Borghese Gardens to impress the illustrious guests he hosted on the grounds.

Family Friendly Tour of the Galleria Borghese

The Borghese Gallery was built in the 17th century and is home to works by some of the finest artists: Bernini, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, and many more. Your children will be enthralled by the paintings and sculptures, many based on mythological themes. You will see how the Greek and Roman gods play a prominent role in art, giving your kids the opportunity to share their own knowledge. Jupiter, Juno, Venus, and Apollo are just some of the Roman gods represented within this collection, one of the premier museums in Rome. With limited access every two hours, your family is guaranteed to enjoy the artwork without crowds.

Your expert English-speaking licensed guide will also aid you learning how artists used different techniques to create their pieces. Whether it be the marble sculptures of Canova and Bernini that look too real to be stone or the gritty oil paintings of Caravaggio, painted from live models, the collection is brimming with different genres of art.  Along the way you’ll be on the lookout for hidden symbols within the gallery itself, such as the symbolic eagles that represent the Borghese family. You’ll discover this impressive private collection with VIP Fast Track tickets and will be able to bypass the admission lines.
