Overview

Our Caravaggio and Bernini in Rome Private Tour bring you around Baroque Rome with a private guide to teach you all you need to know about it.

Follow the footsteps of Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Bernini and Raphael. Learn all about these great artists who have shaped Rome’s landscape, while you visit the most important churches and paintings of Baroque Rome.

Once you meet your private guide, you will walk inside the Church of St. Andrew of the Fratte, where you can admire the spectacular angels sculpted by Bernini.

Next, you will visit the Church of St. Ignatius. It is a Roman Catholic titular church, of deaconry rank, dedicated to Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus. It is best known for its fake perspective dome, a masterpiece skillfully created by Andrea Pozzo.

Your adventure of Baroque Rome will continue to the Church of St. Mary above Minerva, the only exact example of an original Gothic church building in Rome, and close to Church of St. Agostino. Here you will be blown away by works by Caravaggio and Raphael.

The last part of your Caravaggio and Bernini Private Tour will bring you to the stunning Navona Square where you will visit the Church of St. Luis of the French. The church's most famous treasure is the cycle of paintings in the Contarelli Chapel by Caravaggio in 1599–1600 about the life of St. Matthew.

This includes the three world-renowned canvases of The Calling of St Matthew, The Inspiration of Saint Matthew and The Martyrdom of Saint Matthew.

At the end of your tour, you will see Farnese square, where an unbelievable colonnade by Borromini is located.

What makes it so unique and famous is its perspective game; something you absolutely need to see! Go back in time to Baroque Rome and find out all about incredible artists who shaped Rome and, indeed, the world. Choose our Caravaggio and Bernini in Rome Private Tour!

This was a fabulous tour. We had expected a perfunctory explanation of the work and the artist, but our guide was a very knowledgable and interesting guide.

A wonderful tour at a wonderful price! We really enjoy private tours as you learn a lot more. They are usually more expensive, but this one was great value. Our guide took us to some amazing church’s and we really loved the church of St. Agostino. She was friendly and had a wealth of information that did not seem rehearsed like some tours do. I really cannot recommend this tour enough.
