Artistic Rome with Carol Georges
Carol C. Georges, Ph.D, native English speaker, invites you to a special private tour of Rome that concentrates on the most beautiful aspects of the Eternal City. Her educational background in the Classics and Art History include Oxford University and her professional experience has afforded her the opportunity to live in 12 countries around the world.
The purpose of the time spent together will be to open your eyes to the unique feeling of Rome that sets it apart from other capital cities - the architecture and the art which are often in hidden places, churches with a special beauty, the many fountains and historical monuments.
Carol's touring style is to impart a feeling of the great Roman Empire and a sense of the many layers of history that envelope Rome.
A printed document with historical details, addresses and directions is given to each client so the visit can be retraced mentally and physically.
She feels successful when she has been able to inspire her clients to return home and explore in greater depth what they experienced.
The tours are divided into sections of Rome so it is possible to walk to all of the places visited in the center of the city. The number of people on each tour is strictly limited to six - unless otherwise requested. The pace of each tour is relaxed and not rushed as Rome is like a fine wine - it should be savored. Most tours begin at 14:30 and end around 17:30 unless otherwise requested. The meeting place can be arranged for your convenience.
For example, Itinerary One (Center - North side of Rome) includes: The Pantheon, Piazza Navano, Church of San Luigi dei Francesi; Church of Sant' Agostino, Church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, Church of Sant' Agnese in Agone, Trevi Fountain, the famous shopping street Via Condotti, Spanish Steps, Fountain of the Barcaccia, Mausoleum of Augustus, Church of the Trinita del Monti, the Piazza del Popolo, Church of Santa Maria del Popolo - and additional sites along the way.
A concentration will be on the works of Michelangelo, Caraveggio and Bernini.
The price of the tour is 70 Euros per couple - or 50 Euros for one person. If a couple desires a completely private tour for only two, the price can be negotiated. A limousine service can be arranged if desired.
