This isn’t your everyday, average tour of Rome… this is a great tour of Rome!
An incredible one-day walking tour awaits you with a focus on Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque art and architecture. But don’t let those words scare you because if you are walking through Rome, you are already looking at these things you just might not know it!
The tour is fun, useful and informative, providing maps, directions, video, audio, beautiful photographs and details about:
You may not have heard about some of these sites before, but you will never forget them after you experience this tour!
While relaxing at home or visiting onsite in picturesque Rome enjoy the best view of the city, see five unbelievable Caravaggio paintings, stand beneath a ceiling that is an optical illusion, and see the mouth that is really a door, or is it the other way around?
The tour is designed to be walked in one day, but may take longer depending on the amount of time you spend at each location. The total walking distance is approximately 3.5 km, so wear comfortable shoes and carry a small set of binoculars so you can see fine details in the buildings and artwork.

The content for this web-page based tour was originally developed for a walking tour app on the iOS and Android platforms.
The app was downloaded in 44 countries starting in 2014.
It is no longer available in the app stores, but instead has been converted to these web pages, so they will work on all devices.
We created another walking tour called Mostly Roman and Early Christian,which is available by clicking this link.
