Baroque Masterpieces - Private Guided Tour in Rome
Baroque Masterpieces - a 3-hour private guided tour in Rome for four people.
No other city in the world boasts as much Baroque art as Rome. Our special tour starts from Piazza Navona: at the center of the square stands the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers created by the brilliant Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
In Piazza Navona you will admire the Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone designed by prominent architects including Francesco Borromini. The next stop on the Baroque trail is Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza, a church built by Borromini in the second half of the 17th century that is considered one of the architect's greatest masterpieces due to its artistic, technical and symbolic value.
Afterwards you'll head to Palazzo Spada, home to Borromini's forced perspective - an awesome architectural optical illusion that was created during the Baroque period. Finally, you'll visit the Church of St. Agostino in Campo Marzio and the Church of St. Francis of the French, which houses some of Caravaggio’s most famous masterpieces.
CAF is a non-profit organization that was founded in Milan in 1979 by Ida Borletti. It’s the first center in Italy that hosts and takes care of minors who have been victims of violence and abuse, and it has welcomed and taken care of over 800 minors in the past 30 years. It’s a temporary home for children who have fallen victim to serious situations and who need to find a competent, stable and specialized environment where they can talk about their traumatic experiences before returning to their families or to their foster/adoptive parents.
The association tries to understand the personal family and social motivations behind why the parents where not able to offer adequate care and safety to their children. Over the past 30 years, CAF has made a name for itself as a community with an extremely specialized method in caring for abused children. Social workers also work with the center for some of their most serious and difficult cases due to the center’s specialization in psychology and education.
