Reasons to Visit
The Borghese villa and its small palace were constructed at the beginning of the 17th century in an area then occupied by orchards and vineyards, evidence of which can still be seen today. It exemplifies the style of villa owned by a great Roman family at that period. The Gallery contains works by Raffaello, Canova, Bernini and Romano.
Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel
The Vatican Museums house one of the finest art collections in the world. As the collections are so vast, it is better to confine yourselves to a few selected highlights such as the Chiaramonte Gallery, the Raphael Rooms, Raphael’s Loggia and the Chapel of Nicholas V, the Pinacoteca Gallery, not forgetting the Sistine Chapel with the awe-inspiring Last Judgement, which fills the altar wall.

Dating back to 1471, the Capitoline Museums are the world’s oldest public museums. Their collection of classical sculpture is one of Italy's finest. There is also a formidable picture gallery with masterpieces by the likes of Titian, Tintoretto, Rubens and Caravaggio.
National Roman Museum
The Roman National Museum, founded in 1889 is spread across 4 locations around the city. Its collections illustrate the history of the city and provides a magnificent showcase for some of the most beautiful paintings, mosaics and sculptures of the Roman age.
