Behind the steps of Michelangelo, Bernini, and Borromini small group tour

This tour is our Italian art tour, where we will follow the footsteps of three famous sculptors: Bernini, Borromini, and Michelangelo. We will start the tour from our office in Via del Cardello,31. From here we will go to the first stop of our guided tour, Basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli, where you can admire Michelangelo’s Moses.
The work portrays a majestic Moses, sculpted in 1513. Seated in a serious attitude, he rests with one arm on the tables, and with the other holds his long glossy beard.
Continuing with the itinerary we will arrive at the Campidoglio, also known as Monte Capitolino, one of the seven hills on which Rome was founded. Piazza Campidoglio was created at the behest of Pope Paul III Farnese, to impress the Emperor Charles V. The next stop is Piazza Navona, one of the most beautiful squares in Rome. This square is famous for having 3 fountains. The most famous fountain, located in the middle of the square is The Fountain Of The Four Rivers, designed by Bernini, who was commissioned by Pope Innocent.
The fountain represents the four main rivers, the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube, and the Rio de la Plata.
In this square, we will also find the famous Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone. The facade of the church was designed by Borromini and is located exactly in front of Bernini’s fountain.
Last but not least, we will stop at Piazza di Spagna, a square well known for having perhaps the most famous staircase in the world, but today we will focus on the fountain in the middle of the square. The Barcaccia, a fountain designed by Bernini’s father and helped by his son Gian Lorenzo Bernini, was built in 1610. According to some legends, the shape of the fountain may have been inspired by the presence of a boat on the square, carried by the flood of the Tiber. Discover with our professional licensed guide the true history and art of Rome and find out all the stories hidden behind each place.
