What to expect

Join a delightful walking tour of the eternal city and stroll through the Roman squares and away from the crowds. In the course of only three hours, you'll get to discover and learn all about the hidden masterpieces of Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Borromini, Raphael and many more.
Michelangelo and all the other great artists who created in Rome left many masterpieces in tiny palaces, secluded churches, and huge squares. This experience will help you find them all. Let your guide take you to Galleria Spada where you'll have the chance to admire the world-famous Galleria Prospettica, built by the architect Borromini. This unusual corridor seems to be wide and long but, once you get closer, you'll see that there's more to it than meets the eye. Walking a little further, you'll then enter the gothic church Santa Maria sopra la Minerva, where you'll see the legendary statue of the Standing Christ by Michelangelo. Next, nearby Piazza Navona, some breathtaking paintings by Caravaggio will change your perception of light and darkness, and you'll encounter authentic pieces by Raphael, located in the Chigi headquarter church. Take an afternoon off from the typical tourist attractions and experience Rome at its best in front of its most hidden masterpieces with the heart of the city town as a background.
