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.

This was a fabulous tour. We had expected a perfunctory explanation of the work and the artist, but our guide, Jeanette, was a very knowledgable and interesting guide. The background information on Caravaggio's life was very useful in putting his work in context. If you truly want to come to know his work, and to get a very strong experience for this section of Rome, between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona, this is a great way to do it.

Our very own private little tour as our group of four where the only attendees! Are tour guide was amazing, extremely educated and fun! We were learning so much while causally stolling the streets and popping into different churches here and there. Complete with incredible wine and really wonderful food made this adventure well rounded. Highly reccomended! Would not suggest bringing children on this tour.
