Overview

The tour begins at the Ponte Sant'Angelo. Marvel at the 10 angelic statues designed by Bernini as you cross the bridge. Learn the ideal behind still drama of stone and how this was transfigured into Baroque architecture.

Make your way to the Church of San Giovanni de Fiorentine, a work of great Baroque genius in its own right and the resting place of the great Francesco Borromini. From there, visit two magnificent churches designed by Borromini - Santa Maria in Varicella (also known as Chiesa Nuova), and Saint Agnese in Agone. Learn how the Counter Reformation was fought not just in words but in art.

Onward to the Dominican Order’s church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva located near the Pantheon. It is one of Rome’s few examples of Gothic architecture aggrandized in the Baroque by the religious order while they held in their nearby halls the trial of Galileo Galilei.

Finally, walk over to the two most architecturally influential Jesuit Churches in the world. The first is dedicated to the Spanish knight and founder of the Jesuit order, San Ignazio Loyola, and the second is the mother church of the Jesuit order, Chiesa del Santissimo Nome di Gesù.
