Off the beaten path in the eternal city, its museums and collections
This is a 7 hours walking tour aimed to accommodate those who seek an alternative experience in the city, away from the crowds of the usual must-see places. We start in Trastevere with the magnificent renaissance villa of a rich banker, we'll admire some precious artworks by Raphael and his followers. We'll then cross Sixtus IV Bridge on the river Tiber and walk through one of the most authentic district in Rome, we will look at the serene elegance of Piazza Farnese and head towards one of the still buzzing market in the city center, Campo de' fiori.
The last hour before our lunch break will be dedicated to the magnificent Doria Pamphili painting Gallery, a stunning, still privately owned collection in a gorgeous XVII century Palazzo.
After our lunch break we will head towards Capitoline Hill: once the most sacred hill in Ancient Rome and today's city hall. Michelangelo's plan

I had been to Rome over 2 dozen times so I suppose I could be demanding but Mr. Pinelli handled the tour so well with almost native English, kind patience as well as outstanding knowledge of the city & art history. I have to say he is one of the best art tour guide I have ever encountered in life. I will definately recommend to my art circle in China and to all of you are insterested on a deep but stimulating tour in Rome!
