“A STEP ABOVE” TOUR (FULL DAY)
This special tour focuses on the legacy of the Roman aristocracy and includes visits to two magnificent palaces recently opened or renovated. The first, Palazzo Doria Pamphilj, is a majestic sixteenth-century palace with a notable collection of paintings by Caravaggio, Velázquez and Carracci. The major part of the tour visits the Villa Borghese, its beautiful park, and the Borghese Museum, with its world-renowned collection of paintings by Raphael, Titian, Correggio and Caravaggio as well as sculptures by Canova and Bernini. This tour includes a wonderful lunch (on own) at one of Rome’s famous trattorias. Because of Museum and Palace closing days, this tour is available every day except Mondays and Thursdays.
