Rome

Overview

As they go about their business, Romans are possessively proud of their historic city which has an unforgettable majesty, rich with the relics of 2,000 years of history. It retains many buildings and monuments from the Republic and Empire, some in amazingly good order, such as the Pantheon and the Colosseum. Rome is also a great treasure house of Baroque architecture containing masterworks by Bernini, Borromini and da Cortona. The sheer volume of art, sculpture and architecture on display is extraordinary, as is the array of restaurants. Our Kirker Guide Notes will help you find some of the best and most atmospheric ones, many of which are off the beaten tourist track.

 

MUSEUM TICKETS

All Kirker clients are offered guaranteed entrance tickets to either the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel or the Villa Borghese.

Villa Borghese: This elegant villa in the Borghese Gardens was founded by Cardinal Scipione and contains a wonderful collection of classical sculptures and Renaissance art. Highlights include works by Titian and Lotto as well as Canova’s sculpture of Pauline Bonaparte (closed Mondays).

Vatican Museum & Sistine Chapel: Although best known for Michelangelo’s work in the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms, there is much more of interest including the Etruscan Museum, the Tapestries Gallery and the Vatican’s own important art collection (closed Sundays).
