The absolute Art of the " Eternal City" : Rome.


Baroque is a Roman original ideation; the starters: Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini.
Not only for Architecture but for Sculpture, Paint and whole Art in general.
In a good seven-hours tour walk, starting in People Square, ending with the view of St Peter's Basilica, our stroll has the ambition to reveal to your eyes the best production of the most important Maestros that signed works among the most celebrated on Earth.
-No other tour is as complete as the one I have in mind for you.
-No other "town center" is so packed of Monuments as Rome is; many of them never seen by visitors.
It needs one full day, includes breaks for lunch and best gelato in town.
Goes inside 3/4 Churches to admire masterpieces, enters 10/11 squares with celebrated Fountains, sees most of ancient Roman "left-overs" along our way.
It will make you remember Rome forever and satisfy in full your curiosity and understanding.
Just give me the time to make it possible

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I would suggest the starting square of our itinerary at the agreed time.
That is " Piazza del Popolo " at the cab station.
I will have a sign with your name on it to be identified.

But you can ask me to come pick you up wherever (Hotel, Port, train station, airport etc.) adding the cost of time to my service.

End location: Tour ends in Navona Square where, often , people like to remain for dinner ( the square is enchanting), a real scenic dining room.
Cab station very close.

Duration: 7 hours 30 min.

It is a walking tour, allows to breathe the Roman daily life around us. If we have possible problems for walking, we have now the help of these electric vehicles on tyres to be hired with additional cost; allowing us to keep our pace and time.
Also the break for lunch is a hold up but is considered in the 1/2 h. over the 7 needed.

Transportation

Walking a full-day tour requires comfortable shoes and Rome center requires the walk.
We can use also hired electric carts if we have some with disabled mobility.
