TOUR ITINERARY

Explore Rome’s history with one of ours expert guides. Get lost into the charming ancient streets while discovering the Eternal City’s most famous landmarks and monuments.

Meet your guide at the designated meeting point.

Start this three hours walk from the Unique Piazza Navona famous for the Fountain of the Four Rivers, with its Egyptian obelisk, and the church Sant’Agnese in Agone. The surface of the Piazza shows its baroque soul while its true face is buried underground. Heading north you will reach the Stadio Domiziano. This is what Piazza Navona was: a Roman Stadium. The Emperor Domitian established the fest dedicated to Jupiter and dedicated this stadium to the celebrative shows.

A quick walk and the tour will bring you to visit the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi famous for the cycle of paintings dedicated to St. Matthew’s life by the Baroque genius Caravaggio.

The visit continues toward the Pantheon, one of the best preserved buildings from Ancient Rome.

The tour will now bring you to enjoy the Baroque Church of St. Ignazio dedicated to the founder of the Society of Jesus. A unique feature characterizes this church: as a result of a money shortage the Jesuit hired a painter to depict the dome.

Discover the grandiose Trevi Fountain and, as all visitors do, toss a coin to guarantee your return to this splendid city. The tour ends here.

Now that you are free stop by one of Rome’s many ice cream shops and enjoy a mouth-watering gelato! Otherwise keep walking through Via delle Muratte and reach Via del Corso where you can stroll around like many Romans do.

TOUR ITINERARY

Meet your private guide at the entrance of Galleria Borghese 30 minutes prior to the entrance time of the gallery.

 

Drawn from the collection assembled by Cardinal Scipione Borghese in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, the Borghese Gallery includes major works by Raphael, Rubens, Titan, Caravaggio, Bernini, Antonello da Messina and Canova. This collection is housed in the former Villa Borghese Pinciana, which was built between 1607 and 1613, with further extensions and improvements being implemented in the following years. The villa, along with its impressive collection, was eventually purchased by the state in 1902.

 

The stunning architecture and decoration of the gallery create the perfect setting for the magnificent paintings and sculptures within. The villa’s large and lush gardens, maintained in the naturalistic English manner, are also worth visiting as they house a number of smaller villas turned museums and various monuments.

 

At the end of your visit, exit at the gates near the Via Veneto from where you can return to your hotel or continue sightseeing at leisure.

Church of San Luigi dei Francesi – Rome

A quick walk from Piazza Navona will bring you to visit the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, France’s national church in Rome.

In 898 The Abbey of Farfa was burned down during a Saracen invasion; the monks escaped and settled in Rome. Here they built a church dedicated to St. Mary. In 1480 the property became part of the Medici’s estate. They commissioned the construction of a new church and changed the name in Saint Louis of the French. It was designed by Giacomo Della Porta and built by Domenico Fontana during the 16th century.

The church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, to St. Denis and St. Louis IX, king of France.

For years the higher prelates and members of the French community of Rome were buried here.

Things to see

Designing the church’s exterior Della Porta used a method that later was much copied: the façade decoration is completely independent from the rest of the building.

Walking inside the church it is possible to admire Domenichino’s masterpieces: a series of frescoes representing the Histories of Saint Cecilia.

However St. Louis of the French is mostly famous for the cycle of paintings dedicated to St. Matthew’s life by the Baroque genius Caravaggio. Visitors from all around the world come here to contemplate the famous canvases of The Calling of St Matthew, The inspiration of St Matthew and the Martyrdom of St. Matthew.
