Your guide will meet you at your hotel. With your pre-booked admission*, you are guaranteed

Scipione Caffarelli Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V, built the villa in 1613. It is located in
his family's vineyards outside Porta Pinciana. Flaminio Ponzio
was commissioned to design the casino. After his death, Giovanni Vasanzio took on job of
supervising the building. He followed the example of Villa Medici in furnishing the exterior. There
are rich ornaments taken from archeological finds, so that any visitor could
identify the building as a private museum.
It contained Scipione Borghese's fabulous collection of paintings and antiquities, to which he
constantly and enthusiastically added more. In 1902, the entire grounds and all the works of
art were acquired by King Umberto I of Italy. He then donated all works to the city of Rome. As a
result, this very rich private collection became a public museum, which is world famous
today as the Galleria and Museo Borghese.
