“You cannot leave Rome without taking the Baroque's route, sightseeing the most important Bernini and Borromini's works of art. These architects shaped what in the 17th century was the fanciest and classiest city in the world. What you cannot miss: - Piazza Navona with Sant'Agnese in Agone facade and the Fountain of the Four Rivers - Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza and his unique, super elegant dome (one of my favorite in Rome) - Via XX Settembre and its churches - Ponte Sant'Angelo and its statues - The world famous Galleria Prospettica and its illusionism, in Palazzo Spada - The Spada Chapel in the San Girolamo della Carità Church (might not be Borromini, but still the Baroque's genius at its finest!) - The Oratorio dei Filippini and Santa Maria in Vallicella - The Propaganda Fide Palace and Sant'Andrea delle Fratte”

“The Orange Trees Garden (Italian: Giardino degli aranci) is the name used in Rome to describe the Parco Savello. It is about 7,800 square meters and is located on the Aventine Hill. The park offers an excellent view of the city. The garden, as it is today, was designed in 1932 by Raffaele De Vico. It was constructed to offer public access to the view from the side of the hill, creating a new ‘’belvedere’’, to be added to the existing viewpoints in Rome from the Pincian Hill and the Janiculum. The garden, whose name comes from the many bitter orange trees growing there, extends over the area of an ancient fortress built near the basilica of Santa Sabina by the Savelli family between 1285 and 1287, which, in turn, was built over an old castle constructed by the Crescentii in the tenth century. A few steps from the Orange Garden, you will find a great surprise. From the keyhole of a historic building, you will be able to see the dome of St. Peter. The gate from which you can enjoy this view is inserted in the structure of the villa of the Priorato di Malta which overlooks the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta. The villa stands on the area that was a Benedictine monastery founded in 939 which passed to the Templars in the twelfth century but was stolen by Clement V and finally seized it in 1400 by Pope Paul II who granted it to the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.”

“Se vi trovate nei pressi di Piazza Navona, dopo aver visitato la Chiesa di San Luigi dei Francesi, a pochi metri di distanza, in piazza sant'Agostino, anche la Biblioteca Angelica merita una visita. Questa biblioteca risalente al Seicento, oggi sede dell'Accademia letteraria dell'Arcadia, ospita una collezione di libri molto antichi e la sua sala principale è molto suggestiva: entrate e chiedete al personale di poter dare uno sguardo. Rimarrete impressionati!”
