Rome's Borghese Gallery
More than a museum, the Borghese Gallery is a beautiful villa in a delightful urban-park setting. Visitors get to see great works of art in the setting for which they were commissioned by the Borghese family. Masterpieces by Baroque masters Bernini and Caravaggio are among the many highlights. Here's a preview from Rick's TV show, Rome: Baroque Brilliance. (3½ min)
