Project Description

Bernini’s masterpieces in Rome

It is not possible to take a stroll in the center of Rome without stumbling into one of the many masterpieces of Baroque art. Gianlorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini, who both lived in the middle of the 17th century, gave the city some of the most representative works of the Italian Baroque. Protagonists of a heated rivalry, for years they have made Rome the center stage where to exhibit their works.
To this day, it is still possible to admire these architectural wonders by visiting the vast and historic squares, fountains and churches of the Eternal City.

This tour offers roundtrip transportation from your hotel in Rome, from one of the main railway stations (Termini or Tiburtina) or from the two airports of the city (Fiumicino and Ciampino). An accessible private van will take you to the heart of the city to let you appreciate the beauty of the baroque art.
Our bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible path designed specifically to help you discover all the secrets of the Eternal City.

The first stop will be the elegant Piazza di Spagna, the romantic center of 19th-century Rome, where you will find the scenic Trinità dei Monti staircase and the Barcaccia fountain, a youthful work by the talented Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

After traveling down Via Condotti, one of the most elegant and fashionable streets in the city, you will cross some narrow alleys to reach one of the most fascinating corners of Rome: the incredible Trevi Fountain, symbol of the artistic wonders of the city.
It is a must-do stop if you decide to visit Rome, as is the famous coin toss into the fountain. As custom dictates, you should toss the coin with your right hand over the left in order to ensure a return trip to Rome.

You will continue with the guided tour of the Pantheon, a masterpiece of Roman architecture and famous for its huge brick dome with a hole in the center.
You will discover the hidden secrets of this wonderful building, a product of the Roman architectural genius, which summarizes the perfection of proportions in every detail of the monument.

The tour ends in the splendid and refined Piazza Navona, often referred as “Rome’s Lounge”, adorned with the spectacular Fountain of the Four Rivers, also by Bernini. With the guide you will discover the secrets of this work and all the inside-stories behind it: legend has it that the statue embodying the Nile intentionally cover his eyes so as not to see the adjacent Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone, designed by Borromini, his great rival.
