The tour starts in Piazza Farnese, named after one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces of Rome, today home of the French embassy, Palazzo Farnese. It was commissioned by the cardinal Alessandro Farnese, and designed by Antonio Sangallo. Its construction started in 1514, continued under the management of Michelangelo and then Giacomo della Porta.

The tour continues through Campo de’ Fiori, that literally means “field of flowers”. The name of the square was first given during the Middle Ages, when the area was actually a meadow. You then stroll towards Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, one of architect Baldassarre Peruzzi’s masterpieces.

The tour goes on in the direction of Piazza Venezia, where you can admire the Renaissance palace called Palazzo Venezia, commissioned by the cardinal Pietro Barbo. It was built between 1455 and 1467 and much of the travertine was quarried from the nearby Colosseum and the Theatre of Marcellus. The tour ends on the Capitoline hill, in Piazza del Campidoglio, example of Renaissance geometries, designed by Michelangelo.
