Leaving the minibus in the Baroque splendour of Piazza Navona,
Bernini's "Fountain of the Four Rivers" is the
starting point of the tour that continues on through some of the
most beautiful Renaissance quarters of Rome.
It will be possible
to admire some of the Caravaggio's greatest
French church of San Luigi, before heading towards the lively Campo
de' Fiori, one of the oldest and liveliest markets of Rome.
Just behind it, there is Palazzo Farnese, masterpiece of
the Renaissance, designed in part by Michelangelo, before
strolling down the Via Giulia to the goldsmith's church
of Saint Elegius,
designed by Raphael J and the house where
he lived during his time in Rome. Reaching the River Tiber at
the level of the beautiful Bridge of Sant'Angelo, the
tour ends with the view across the river of the imposing Castel
Sant'Angelo, that started life as Hadrian's mausoleum, and St.
Peter's Basilica with its famous dome
