Borghese Gallery hotels
The Borghese Gallery is a famous art exhibition located in the former Villa Borghese Pinciana of Rome, Italy. Most of the one-of-a-kind gallery’s artwork and themed collections came from the impressive vaults of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, who was Pope Paul V’s well-known nephew. Historically, the Borghese were an extremely wealthy and influential family, a fact evidenced by this world-famous collection that enjoys thousands of visitors year after year, curious about its renowned splendour. The gallery sits inside a beautiful building designed by the Cardinal himself.
