Galleria Borghese, Rome
10 Must-see pictures and sculpture masterworks. Your private VIP curated museum tour
A visit with your own art historian, flying in for you.
Join me for a visit to Galleria Borghese, Rome. I will be your private professor, travelling in from Amsterdam, Holland specially for you. Tour by Drs Kees Kaldenbach, a professional Art History scholar with excellent teaching skills. Specialist in Fine art and Design, Architecture and History. VIP entry. Entry best at from 9 or 10AM.
Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency. I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours. The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‘Professor’ and offer full transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons.
1. Expensive option: You can hire me and I will fly in to be your own outstanding private “Professore”. At your cost, I will fly in especially for you and I will guide you after spending a hotel night. And then a very memorable museum visit or two.
2. Less expensive option: I know many first-rate art historian colleagues all over Western Europe. Therefore I know just the company/guide to arrange an excellent museum visit for you. I work very closely with these art history women and men and they are brilliant.
The art works in this Borghese Gallery were collected, by one of the really great scoundrels of that age, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V. Tough-minded, Borghese stole and extorted whatever he could not legally buy right away.
Scipione Borghese was a major patron of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and the sculptures are displayed here in the spaces for which they were originally intended. Note the 3D effects!
Borghese also avidly collected works by Caravaggio.
Please note, I will be your private Professore, and fly in from Amsterdam, Holland especially for you. Best entry time at 9 AM. Timed tickets must be bought!
Best collection of baroque sculpture anywhere
Very good painting collection exhibited on two floors.
The best Caravaggio collection amassed in one single museum.
