About the Borghese Gallery

The Borghese Gallery is home to a substantial collection of paintings, sculptures and antiques. Many of the items were originally collected by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, the nephew of Pope Paul V (reign 1605 – 1621). Today the gallery consists of 20 rooms split between two floors, with the main floor consisting of classical antiquities from the 1st-3rd centuries AD, along with classical and neo-classical sculptures. The sculpture collection highlights include: ‘Apollo and Daphne’ and ‘David’ by Bernini, and ‘Pauline Bonaparte’ by Antonio Canova. The painting collection highlights include: ‘Melissa’ by Dosso Dossi, ‘Saint Jerome Writing’ by Caravaggio, and ‘The Last Supper’ by Jacopo Bassani.
