The Extraordinary Raphael
Villa Farnesina – Sant’Agostino Basilica – Pantheon
Precisely 500 years from his death, pay homage to Raphael – among the most talented and gifted geniuses in history. Together with your expert guide, you will visit the 16th century Villa Farnesina, one of the noblest and most harmonious creations of Italian Renaissance. A precious villa in which architecture and frescoes fuse into a single breathtaking jewel, highlight of which is Raphael’s Loggia of Amore and Psiche. Stroll around the monumental rooms and be transported into an ancient, legendary world, made of images, symbols and unbelievable myths. Of all the artists that competed to satisfy the commissioner, only Raphael managed to bless the most important Italian artistic
movement, Renaissance, with the gift of immortality. Head towards the Basilica of St. Agostino, where waiting for you is a lesser-known yet magnificent and powerful 16th century fresco featuring the prophet Isaiah.
And last, but not least, a panoramic stroll by the Trevi Fountain, along Via del Corso and extremely close to the city’s main highlights, will take you to the majestic Pantheon, the largest Dome ever created – temple of past, present and future deities – that hosts the tomb of great artists and personalities...among them, our Raphael.
