Rodrigo Borgia: pope, father, lover, patron of the arts and famous for the following quotes: "Never have mercy for those who won't help themselves." and "Oh what would Rome be without a plot?"
If you've seen either of the recent Borgia TV series', this tour is a must!
We are excited to introduce this well-researched "Borgia" private walking tour - and to be among the first to offer this tour in Rome - giving you an alternative aspect of life in Rome in the 15th century where you will get a glimpse into the personal life of one of the Vatican's most controversial popes.
You will visit the locations of his power, his mistress, palaces that he had built and eventually the place where he died. This is a very colourful insight into the period, which also covers the fascinating subjects of courtesans and Renaissance cuisine - what the Borgia's would have been eating!
We will have a delicious break for cappuccino & cake on the very spot where one of the sons of the Borgia Pope was murdered. And where better to end your tour than just a few steps from the magnificent Colosseum.
We also offer an exclusive Borgia's Out of Rome tour, which we researched & designed early 2017.
3 hours walking
There are two points along the route where we usually stop for quick refreshments (refreshments are not included in the price).
You will be walking on cobble stones during a small part of the tour so comfy footwear is advised.
If you are going to be late, we kindly ask you to let us know. We will wait for you but your tour will end at the expected time. This will mean that we won't have time to cover all aspects of the tour.
No-shows are treated as last-minute cancellations and are non-refundable. We allow 15 minutes wait time.
We meet at Castel Sant'Angelo and end near the Colosseum.
