Tour description

During our 3 hour Caravaggio and Bernini Private Tour you will be accompanied by a passionate private guide, who is an expert in art history and Baroque Rome. With our private walking tour, focusing specifically on Baroque Rome, you will follow in the footsteps of Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Bernini and Raphael. You will learn how these great artists have shaped Rome’s landscape to make it the great center of Baroque culture that it is today. You will visit the most important churches and paintings of Baroque Rome.

The first section 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. Here you will continue your exploration of Caravaggio in Rome, as St Luis of the French houses three masterpieces by Caravaggio. 

You will visit the Church of St. Andrew of the Fratte, where you can admire the spectacular angels sculpted by Bernini. Replicas of these famous statues are now on the bridge in front of Castel Sant’Angelo, making Bernini’s angels and iconic part of Rome’s everyday landscape.

Next you will visit the Church of St. Ignatius with its fake perspective dome, by Andrea Pozzo. The Church of St. Mary over Minerva will continue your adventure of Baroque Rome. Whilst in the Church of St. Agostino you will be blown away by works of Caravaggio and Raphael. You will learn all about the time spent by Caravaggio in Rome, the influence he had on the Eternal city and in turn Rome on him.

With this walking tour you will really be able to go back in time to Baroque Rome and you will learn all about the incredible artists who created some of the most influential works of the Baroque period in Rome and, indeed, the world.
