This special tour of Rome combines all three aspects of Italy's magnificent heritage together into one inspirational and entertaining tour. Not only will you get to taste some of the most delicious foods and wines in the City, you'll also learn about the life and times of one of history's greatest artists, the Master Painter Michelangelo Merisi o Amerighi da Caravaggio – a man often credited as the founder of modern painting techniques.
Your tour begins at the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo, located in the Piazza del Popolo, where you will view three of the Master's most famous canvases. You will proceed onward to the famous Via Ripetta, which leads to the Spanish Steps, home to the famous British poets Keats and Shelley in later years.
Next, you will visit the Via Margutta and the Via Condotti, formerly the center home of a great deal of Rome's craft shops, marketplaces, and storefronts, it continues that tradition today as a major shopping center.
