DORIA-PAMPHILJ Gallery: Private Tour with an Art Historian

Doria-Pamphilj Gallery Tour with an Art Historian

Key Details

This Tour includes:

  • all the masterpieces of the gallery

A private Tour to discover the Doria Pamphilj collection and gallery with an Art Historian!

The Doria Pamphilj collection is a pretty hidden treasure, waiting for you in the very heart of Rome downtown: halfway from Trevi fountain, halfway to Pantheon, few minutes far from Venezia square’s Vittoriano building.

With a private, tailored tour you will access the Doria Pamphilj building and discover a jewel perfectly preserved as it was at the very beginning, back to the second half of the 17th century. Besides the masterpieces hosted in the building, the rarest thing is the chance for you to stumble on the descendants of the former Doria Pamphilj owner of the building, who actually nowadays still live in the apartments and take care of the building.


This overwhelming, unique private collection is known for its quality as well as for the great number of pieces you can enjoy: Bernini’s white Carrara marble Portrait of Innocent X perhaps, or Caravaggio’s Repentant Mary Magdalene and The Rest On The Flight Into Egypt.

 

These two artists are just few of the masters you can find here as well as at the Borghese Gallery but, please, allow us to stress the breathtaking set where the major part of the masterpieces are housed such as the four wings Gallery of Mirrors, the Pamphilj Gallery, the Doria Gallery, the Aldobrandi Gallery and plenty of others rooms of the building that will definitely enrich your experience.

 

And if this is not enough for you, you could add some related tours such as our Caravaggio TourBernini Tour and Borghese Gallery Tour.
Who are the artists you’ll discover at the Doria Pamphilj building tour?


During the 2 hours tour we will pass through the breathtaking apartments of the Doria Pamphilj building, and it will be hard to believe the great number of masterpieces you can enjoy.

Together with Bernini’s and Caravaggio’s, there are some astonishing piece of art by GuercinoRaphaelCarracciParmigianinoVelàzquez and many more.

Book your private experience and go beyond the beaten path, with your expert guide and a bag of passion and enthusiasm to bring back home.
