- Step back in time on a history tour
From Piazza del Popolo, your tour continues through some of Rome's most elegant streets, including the fashionable Via Condotti and Via Margutta -- narrow, picturesque streets lined with interesting art galleries and boutique hotels. Your stroll leads to the Spanish steps, a top Rome attraction and must-visit site. After enjoying a photo opportunity at this impressive 138-step staircase, head through Piazza San Lorenzo on your way to the Church of Sant'Agostino.
One of Rome’s true hidden gems, this little-known church is packed with significant art. See works by Raphael before viewing Caravaggio's Madonna del Loreto in the church's Cavaletti Chapel. This controversial painting depicts a beautiful Madonna (Virgin Mary) appearing with two pilgrims, with Christ as a child in her arms.
Spend the last hour of your tour at a local wine bar, where you'll get to relax with your guide and discuss Caravaggio and other Baroque artists whose work you have seen during the tour. Savor two glasses of wine (white and red) and a platter of local cheeses, meats, olives and bread (included) as you sit back, contemplate beautiful art and enjoy the rich cultural atmosphere.

There were 7 of us from USA age range 22 -56. Jeanette was an awesome guide that made the history come alive. We all loved the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in history, art and food. The restaurant we went to afterwards, Casa Coppelle, was the nicest restaurant we have been to in Rome. Thank you, Jeanette!!

This was a great tour and certainly worth the money! Jeanette, our guide, was well informed and entertaining and made the stories behind the art come alive. She wove history, sociology, psychology, and art together to give context to these amazing works. Our tour included three churches and six paintings by Caravaggio, as well as stops to look at some Bernini sculptures. Some days the tour includes two churches and the Spanish Steps instead. The two hours of viewing the art, combined with the wine tasting after, was just right. There is a bit of a walk involved, so wear comfortable shoes and clothing and keep in mind that you will need to cover shoulders in the churches. Highly recommended!
