      • Church of Sant'Andrea al Quirinale: Visit this small, intimate example of masterful Baroque architecture, designed by Bernini. The flow, perspective and grandeur of Baroque art and architecture are perfectly illustrated here.
      • San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane: Discover "Carlino," a smaller but even more breathtaking church designed by Borromini. The artist's aesthetic details lay the basis for Baroque art, and makes "Carlino" a favorite of architects.
      • Santa Maria della Vittoria: Enter this church to discover the treasure that is the Ecstasy of St. Teresa sculpture by Bernini. This is the perfect setting to discuss religious icons in Baroque art, and why so much great art is found in churches.
      • Expert guide: Enjoy an informative and enlightening comparison by your art historian-guide, showing how these two masters came from opposite backgrounds to create stunning works that shaped the course of Baroque art and architecture.
      • Small group = more personal: Share your experience with only the people you know; enjoy the luxury of deeper interaction with your guide and a more flexible itinerary.

      Meeting point

      Please meet your guide on the steps of Sant' Andrea al Quirinale, which is a small church located at via del Quirinale 29. If using public transportation, Sant'Andrea al Quirinale is a short walk from the Barberini stop on the Metro A (red) line.

      Helpful hints

      Sant'Andrea al Quirinale has been undergoing restoration and subsequently some of the interior of the church is hidden by scaffolding. Our guides will make sure you can have a visual representation of the parts that are obscured.

      As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind. In need of retail therapy after your tour? Your guide can advise you where to go in search of that "must have" souvenir to take home. Be sure to have some local currency and a backpack for all your great buys.
