Tour of the Churches of Rome

The spectacular Baroque churches of Rome make this itinerary really special, a nice and relaxed walking tour with a stop for a typical coffee in an ancient place where the artists and famous writers stopped for a good drink and spoke about the culture and the policy in Rome at that time.
A licensed tour guide will explain and show you the beautiful artworks of Bernini, the unique paintings of Caravaggio, and the spectacular paintings in a dome in St. Jesus Church. You will admire the facade of Sant’Agnese in Agone, as your guide talks about Rainaldi and Borromini, the two designers of the beautiful baroque churches.
The Church of St. Louis of the French is our first stop. A Roman Catholic Church not far from Piazza Navona, the church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, to St. Denis the Areopagite and St. Louis IX, king of France. It is the national church in Rome of France.
Located in Piazza Navona, Sant’Agnese in Agone is another stop on our list. A 17th-century Baroque church, one of the main urban spaces in the historic centre of the city and the site where the Early Christian Saint Agnes was martyred in the ancient Stadium of Domitian. As well as religious services, the church hosts regular classical concerts in the Borromini Sacristy, from sacred Baroque works to chamber music and operas.
We will also visit the Church of St. Ignatius, dedicated to the founder of the Society of Jesus .It houses the Fake Dome and other baroque art works by Andrea Pozzo. The large fresco is the main piece of decoration of the church. The paintings exalt the apostolic activity of the Society of Jesus in the world.
Next stop, Sant’Andrea della Valle, is a Catholic place of worship in the historic center of Rome, located in Piazza Vidoni, in the Sant’Eustachio district. The church, dedicated to Saint Andrew, dates back to the mid XV century; it originally only had one nave, while the aisles were added in the XVII century.
Santa Maria di Loreto, our last stop, is a 16th-century church in Rome, located just across the street from the Trajan’s Column, near the giant Monument of Vittorio Emanuele II. It is considered the best work of Antonio da Sangallo. The church is built in brick and travertine and is remarkable for the great beauty of the proportions and the beautiful effect produced with great simplicity.
