ONCE UPON A TIME THE ROMANS

Half day walking tour exclusive

A half day tour in the oustanding Museo Nazionale Romano, where Roman artistic treasures are kept, and Michelangelo became architect. Ancient Rome and the Colosseum are huge and overwhelming, but where is all the precious art gone? That’s kept in the Museo Nazionale Romano, Palazzo Massimo and Terme di Diocleziano.  In the short span of morning hours you’ll see so many famous art treasures away from the crowd and traffic; you’ll stroll in an evergreen wood once belonging to the Thermal Baths of Diocletian- what’s more, that huge courtyard was restored by Michelangelo! 
Let your guide treat you with lost statues from the imperial palace such as Myron’s Discobolus (Discus Thrower) and the Old Boxer, richly painted frescoes from the Garden Villa of Empress Livia, colorful mosaics and tombs of any sort and kind!  At the end of the tour, keep some space in your heart for science and astronomy, as you will walk in the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, housing the one and only planetary sundial built by XVII century astronomers for the Pope to calculate the perfect sequence of day and night throughout the seasons. 

Enjoy the pleasure of walking in amazing quietness in front of first class art pieces and let Rome show you its best treasures !
