For Art's Sake!

This semi-private walk for real art aficionados will get you out of the crowds and into the quiet churches to show you a sculpture by Michelangelo, some of Caravaggio's most stunning canvases, a fresco by Raphael and the only known signature of Donatello, all without entering a single museum.

The number of artistic masterpieces in Rome is staggering, but many visitors are so overwhelmed with popular attractions like the Vatican and Colosseum that they can miss out on the city's best kept secrets. This semi-private walk for real art aficionados will get you out of the crowds and into the quiet churches to show you a sculpture by Michelangelo, some of Caravaggio's most stunning canvases, a fresco by Raphael and the only known signature of Donatello, all without entering a single museum. Here art comes to life through your guide's recreation of the exciting atmosphere of Renaissance and Baroque Rome.

Our carefully designed itinerary includes the church of St. Augustine ("Madonna di Loreto" by Caravaggio and the "Prophet Isaiah" by Raphael; San Luigi dei Francesi ("Calling of Saint Matthew" and others by Caravaggio); St. Ignatius(cupola and nave by Andrea Pozzo, Baroque master of trompe l'oeil); Santa Maria Sopra Minerva ("Christ the Redeemer" by Michelangelo); Il Gesu (history of the Jesuits and their role in Baroque art) and Santa Maria in Aracoeli(Tombstone of Giovanni Crivelli by Donatello, "San Bernardino of Siena" by Pinturicchio).
