Visit a privately-owned aristocratic palace, still inhabited since the 17th century *w/Transportation included*
We are in the main city center in an area called "Tridente" (Trident) thanks to its shapes: three main streets (Via del Corso, Via di Ripetta and Via del Babuino) leading from Piazza del Popolo to Piazza Venezia. In an area full of history and tradition, we find many ancient palaces, often reused during the centuries with different purposes. While Palazzo Doria Pamphilj continues to be the residence of the homonymous noble family and it is home to their astonishing gallery with an impressive collection, recently open to the public. The large collection of paintings, furniture and statuary has been assembled since the 16th century; just some names: Raphael, Titian, Velazquez (Portrait of pope Innocent X), Bernini and two Caravaggios (Penitent Magdalene and Rest on the Flight into Egypt). The main collection is displayed in four gilded and painted galleries surrounding a courtyard, including also a Chapel with the mummified corpse of a saint.
We will start with an overview of the area called "The Trident", focusing on Via del Corso and Piazza Venezia (Venice Square) where we will have a stop to look at the large white monument dedicated to the Fatherland ("Altare della Patria"). Then we will visit the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj with its Galleries.
