Visit to a number of the Best Churches in Rome

Outstanding Church Architecture Walks in Rome

St Carlo alle 4 Fontane, interior.

Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency.  I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours. The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‘Professor’ and offer full transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons.

I will be your private Professore, and fly in from Amsterdam, Holland especially for you. Best start time each morning at 9 AM.

We will find out how the building functions in terms of spatial qualities, use (celebrating Mass) and in terms of design and ornament.

Highlights to choose from:

Vatican Architecture (exteriors only)

St Carlo alle 4 Fontane by Borromini.

San Clemente, with three levels: an upper church, around 1100, a lower church, 4th century and a Mithraeum, 2nd century.

St Paul Outside the Walls

World class sculpture within many Churches

Caravaggio paintings in many Churches

And more.

Bernini, yet another saint in sweet ecstasy

 

Caravaggio masterpieces.

Caravaggio in Rome, wherever you turn. I will tell you about this ‘bad boy’.

Pantheon, Rome. Hard to photograph because it is a space that fully envelopes you. Hole on the ceiling lets in sunlight and rain.

Santa Maria Maggiore church.

Design structure of Pantheon. Theoretically, a perfectly round sphere (ball) would fill the space and touch the floor.

Below ground, way down, the S. Clemente has a temple to another deity.

Pantheon caught in a painting.

Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome.

St Peter, Rome. The waiting lines for security checks are sometimes very long.
