Baroque + Renaissance + Ancient Rome tour

  • WALKING GUIDED TOUR  

We offer you a private customized visit of the most spectacular monuments and sights of Renaissance and Baroque face of Rome . With the afternoon dedicated to the ancient Rome.

A stroll to enjoy the city, through its imposing palaces and grand piazzas, where water dances in beautiful fountains; a stroll to discover enchanted little streets where time has stopped; a private tour to dream, exploring history and art in a new way. Join us on an impassioned journey to encounter popes and emperors, artists and ordinary people in the places where their lives took shape, where the ancient and the modern mingled to create the political and religious institutions on which Italian society still rests today.

From Piazza del Popolo one of the largest squares of Rome, famous for the Egyptian obelisque and the twin churches dedicated to Maria, continue towards via del Babuino and reach the Spanish Steps and Trinità dei Monti on top of them. See Bernini’s boat shaped famous fountain in the middle of the square and walk to your next stop, The Trevi fountain, considered one of the most beautiful fountains in  the world just restorated and brought  back to its glorious original splendor.

Keep walking to reach the Pantheon, the oldest building of the city dating back to the 1st century B.C.

Our next stop is Piazza Navona the best expression of the Baroque style in Rome, always busy with it’s restaurants, cafes, gelato shops, painters, street artists and musicians.

Bernini’s marvelous Fountain of the Four Rivers is the piazza’s centrepiece, while dominating the skyline above there is Borromini’s curving facade and bell tower of the church of Santa Agnese.

We finish our private tour with two extremely different piazzas, Campo dei Fiori with its taverns and market stalls, a stop along the route pilgrims took on their way to St. Peter’s and once a site of public execution and torture; by contrast, Piazza Farnese is an aristocratic place of cardinals and popes, overlooked by Palazzo Farnese, sombre testament to Michelangelo’s architectural talent.
