Gianlorenzo Bernini at the Borghese Gallery 40 min
A trip to discover the villa of delights of a powerful cardinal who loved the arts: Scipione Borghese. His gallery is a treasure filled with Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces. We will dwell on the first great sculptures of the young Bernini, spectacular examples of power, dynamism and sensuality transferred on white marble.
Meet Your Guide
I am Barbara Nacinelli. I studied Art History in Rome, and I'm a Roman by birth and passion. Although I became a licensed teacher after graduating, I chose to lead guided tours with different cultural associations instead, in the city of the Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces, the focus of my university studies. This is how I fell in love with this profession for the first time. After that, I collaborated with the education department of the Galleria Borghese for a few years and finally became a licensed Tour Guide of Rome and have been working as one since 2000. I love to tell stories about my city to those who dream of it even before arriving, and still today I continue to explore and study it with enthusiasm because, as they say here: "In Rome, one life is not enough!"
