The Galleria Borghese Museum houses and exhibits a collection of ancient sculptures, bas-reliefs and mosaics, as well as paintings and sculptures from the 15th to the 19th century. Among the masterpieces of the collection, whose first and most important nucleus dates back to the collecting of Cardinal Scipione (1579-1633), nephew of Pope Paul V, there are works by Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian, Correggio, Antonello da Messina, Giovanni Bellini and the sculptures of Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Canova. The works are exhibited in the 20 frescoed rooms which, together with the portico and the entrance hall, constitute the rooms of the Museum open to the public. Over 260 paintings are kept in the Deposits of the Borghese Gallery, located above the floor of the Pinacoteca and set up as a picture gallery. The Deposits of the Borghese Gallery can be visited by appointment. For safety reasons related to the conformation of the historic building, access to the Museum is regulated in rounds of visits of two hours each, for a maximum of 360 people each, with mandatory exit at the end of the shift.
