Walking Tours in Rome - Borromini's Architecture

Guided Walking Tour to visit the sites of Borromini’s Architecture

Borromini's tour Your private walking tour will take you to visit some of Rome’s magnificent Baroque architecture by Borromini. A keen student of the architecture of Michelangelo and the ruins of Antiquity, Borromini developed an inventive and distinctive, if somewhat idiosyncratic, architecture employing manipulations of Classical architectural forms, geometrical rationales in his plans and symbolic meanings in his buildings. He seems to have had a sound understanding of structures, which perhaps Bernini and Cortona, who were principally trained in other areas of the visual arts, lacked. His soft lead drawings are particularly distinctive. He appears to have been a self-taught scholar, amassing a large library by the end of his life.
His career was constrained by his personality. Unlike Bernini who easily adopted the mantle of the charming courtier in his pursuit of important commissions, Borromini was both melancholic and quick in temper which resulted in him withdrawing from certain jobs, and his death was by suicide.

Your licensed tour guide will give you a three hour tour of the church of San Carlino alle Quattro Fontane, the bell tower and dome of the Basilica of Sant’Andrea delle Fratte, the façade of the Propaganda Fide palace in the Piazza della Spagna, and Borromini’s masterpiece Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza. Your tour will end in the Piazza Navona. There are no entrance fees.
