Trip Info

Understand Baroque in a 2-hour walk! Explore the legacy of masterpieces: two geniuses, two different ideas of architecture, one city: Roma

During this tour, you will hear the enthralling story of the rivalry between two men and how it transformed Rome into the most beautiful and modern city of 17th century Europe. Gianlorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini really detested each other and the details of their long-standing rivalry will fascinate you.

These two supremely talented men were the main masters of roman Baroque. As we explore their masterpieces on the Quirinale hill you will see reflected in their magnificent works, Bernini’s passion, art as a full theatrical lighting, and Borromini’s genius, the modernity of “chess master” architect. Borromini speaks to your soul, Bernini captivates your eyes. The choice is yours as to who is the ultimate master.
