Full description
This Rome private tour takes its inspiration from Dan Brown's ‘Angels and Demons', and builds upon the fascinating themes that he explores. Visit the main sites encountered in the book as well as the most famous monuments by the greatest artists of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Hear exciting stories and intrigues that will lead you to many off-the-beaten-path sites as well as the most famous piazzas and fountains in Rome.

Uncover the answer to questions such as: why did Galileo spend the last twenty years of his life under house arrest for his scientific studies which proved that the earth was a satellite of the sun and not the center of the universe? Why were Michelangelo's paintings in the Sistine Chapel declared by important members of the pope's council to be indecent and in need of censoring or even destruction? Why were Caravaggio's controversial paintings frequently removed from the churches for which they were intended on grounds of decorum, only to be quickly purchased for the private collections of cardinals and the wealthiest men of Rome?

Follow in the footsteps of Robert Langdon and uncover the mysteries and controversies that have animated Rome for the last 500 years.
