Exploring At The Galleria Borghese

 There is so much to see and explore in Rome. One of the best places to see art in Rome is in the Galleria Borghese, the elegant mansion of the Borghese family inside the huge Borghese Gardens. I enjoy learning about art, particularly sculptures and paintings. In the Galleria Borghese, there are exhibits of  classical antiquities, Roman and Italian Art. There are sculptures completed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, paintings by Caravaggio, Raphael and Titan among others. It is also the best place to view these masterpieces intimately as the gallery is never crowded. Their ticketing is based on timed visits. Buy your tickets in advance and you will never be disappointed. We also have to leave our bags in the secured lockers in the basement for security reasons. Make sure not to forget to bring your camera for taking photos inside. Afterwards,  we ventured outside to explore the elegant gardens.

This is one of my favourite sculptures by Gian Lorenzo Bernini of David, looking so tense and determined to throw the rock. Bernini's sculpture are so expressive. Behind is the painting by Battistello Carracciolo depicts David holding the head of Goliath. 
G. L. Bernini's Apollo and Daphne which is so romantic shows the emotion of gaiety and ecstasy. 
G.L. Bernini's Pluto and Proserpina. 
The fresco ceiling on the Room of the Emperors depicts the Triumph of Galatea and signs of the Zodiac around it.
