What you'll do

Together we will go back int time visiting: - 3 incredibles churches and several masterpieces including Caravaggio, Borromini, Sansovino, - One of the most beautiful square in the world - The best view in Rome (especially for lovers) Together we will travel through the centuries, it will be like talking with the ancient romans from Nero to Caravaggio, from Julius Caesar to Bernini and the Chigi family. Very strange things were happening in this location, that is why Dan Brown wrote about Santa Maria del Popolo in his book Angels and Demons. I hope you won't be scared by the secrets we will discover together.

Learn more about Giulio Cesare

Giulio Cesare

I was born in Rome and have spent most of my life here. In Rome I received my degree in Architecture and I've taught at the University of Rome for 3 years. Later I spent 10 years in New York where, for 5 years, I taught at NJIT's school of Architecture. Every summer I brought NJIT students of Architecture to Rome to teach them the ancient and modern architecture of Rome. The experience always exceeded their expectations. I'm not a boring professor that will tell you names and dates, I'm a passionate lover of Rome and his secrets, I'm also a good story teller and I like to have fun while telling stories. I will also teach you few words in latin just in case you meet Julius Cesar.

Where you'll be

Santa Maria del Popolo Holy Mary of the People was built by the people that was scared by the presence of the devil in that location, at least is what they believed. Very particular church, with lots peculiar details. Inside find their home several masterpieces. Santa Maria in Monte Santo (Church By Bernini) Santa Maria dei Miracoli (Church by Fontana) Piazza del Popolo (by Valadier) Terrazza del Pincio (best view in Rome)
