Caravaggio & Bernini Rome Tour
February 14th - Feb 17th 2019
4 days, 3 nights
This Art.Cities.Europe. tour focuses on Caravaggio and Bernini, the artists who defined the 17th -century Roman art. In Rome Caravaggio produced his powerful naturalistic sacral and profane paintings, and Bernini, with his dramatic sculptures, reached the high point of Baroque. Optional 3-day extension to Naples provides an opportunity to explore another southern art-city.
One of the highlights of the tour is the great Bernini Exhibition in the Galleria Borghese (open till Feb. 20th), with the largest ever collection of the artist. We finish the tour with a private viewing of the Collection of Palazzo Doria Pamhilj (between others: Titian, Raphael, G. Reni, Velázques, J. Breughel and two seminal Caravaggios) With this program we will take home a lasting art-experience and understanding of the 17th-century Rome.
Between art-walks we enjoy traditional cuccina romana and the famous coffee-culture. With an ample amount of time at leisure you can also explore the Eternal City on your own, or follow few individual itineraries we prepared for you. Relaxed art-talks will facilitate your interpretation and perception of visited artworks, and the February travel dates should help us to avoid crowded streets & museums. The average February temperature highs in Rome are 14°.
