With the arrival of the Renaissance in Rome during the 1400s and the return of the Papal court, Rome was reborn. The aqueducts were to be rebuilt and their terminuses celebrated with grand sculptural groups and mesmerizing piazzas.
Join us as we explore Renaissance and Baroque Rome, from the great Palazzos of the leading families of Rome to the beautiful Baroque piazzas and fountains. From the great rivalries of artists such and Bernini and Borromini to the Inquisition and the trials of great scientific figures such as Galileo and Bruno.
Your private tour of Rome will start at the Spanish steps. We will discuss who and what makes these the most famous stairs in the world. Then join us as we transport you back in time to when Casanova would meander around this area wooing the multitude of visitors to this site, and then onto the Grand tourists who would swarm into this area for its cheap accommodation and soft water (just the thing for a good cup of English tea).
Then onto the most famous fountain in the world, The Trevi, whose history spans back all the way to Augustus and his right-hand man Agrippa. After throwing your coins into the fountain to ensure your safe return we head on past a number of beautiful sites, including; Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo di Fiori, and many more. A veritable romp around Rome's top attractions.
