WHAT WE’LL DO
A stroll in the historical center of Rome is an experience, where you’ll learn what it felt like for an ancient Roman to walk in the shadow of a 20 meters’ high temple. You’ll find yourself in front of giant ancient ruins that casually impose themselves in the streets. These ruins appear out of modern buildings, reminding you how small our existence is compared to the 2700 years’ lifetime of the city you’re walking in.
You would never expect to enter a 400 years old church and feel totally transported by its optical illusions. You’ll exit this church still unsure whether some things were real or not!
And while you’re still trying to figure how such things are possible you’ll get a real punch in the stomach when you find yourself in front of 4 Caravaggio paintings. These painted “photographs” will simply connect with you in a universal language of drama, realism and simplicity. You’ll realize how easily some images painted 400 years ago can still talk to your guts today..
And when we reach Piazza Navona, you’ll think this twirl of emotions is over and you’ve seen it all. But then you’ll suddenly walk around the corner and see an ancient roman stadium below your feet. And at this point you’ll feel there has been a whole city below your feet and you’re only realizing now..
