Full description
The name Borgias, the powerful Spanish family which gave two popes to the Roman Church during the mid-14th century - Callistus III and his nephew Alexander VI - is a name synonymous with controversy and intrigue.  But perhaps only a few know the truth about this important family and its relationship to the history of Rome. Join this fascinating journey through the alleys and squares of the city, where you’ll discover the places that still preserve the memory of the crimes and intrigues of the infamous Borgia family. Special attention will be given to the figure of Alexander VI, one of the most debated popes of the Renaissance. You will see the streets where the political alliances, intrigues and marriages took place, and you can see if fiction and the real history are different or not. If you love history this is the perfect tour for you.

Everything improvised, embarrassing.

She chose this tour because my husband and I are passionate about history, especially of this period. So we already had a good basic knowledge and we expected to deepen. Instead an absolutely total disappointment. Debora, a young girl who accompanied us for this tour for two and a half hours, accompanied us, I would say fortunately ending half an hour before the scheduled three, without saying anything, reading on the phone some random information about the Borgias, of which he knew practically nothing and always looked for places to see on the phone. Embarrassing, all improvised, nothing professional. Not even to do for free let alone the price paid.
