Tour description

Theatrical settings, fantasy and imagination, amazement and illusion: these are the key elements of Baroque Rome.
This walking tour combines some of the most famous highlights of the city—such as the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the fountains of Piazza Navona—with some lesser-known, but equally important, treasures of the Baroque period: the church of Sant'Ignazio, with its striking frescoed ceiling and the extraordinary architecture of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza, a masterpiece of the ingenious Borromini.
No tour of the heart of the Baroque area is complete without a visit to the Pantheon, an example of Roman architecture at its best.

Please note: dress code for entering churches requires covered shoulders and knees.
Sunday morning is reserved to Mass, this may entail limitations in the visit of churches.
Transport not included.

Keywords (tags), separate by comma: Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Navona square
