What to Expect
Join an art historian guide for a 2-hour walking-tour of Rome, based on the treasures left by one of the most powerful and controversial Roman families of the Renaissance - the Borgias.

Rich, famous, and powerful, the House of Borgia has inspired books, romances, and even a TV series. Learn how the Spaniard, Rodrigo Borgia became pope in 1492, taking the name Pope Alexander VI and dedicating himself exclusively to "fixing" his family.

Your guide will explain how he sent his son, Cesare Borgia (the Duke of Valentinois) to expand the borders of the papal empire under the cry, "the end justifies the means," and how he tried to find a husband for his daughter Lucrezia. Learn about powerful women, such as Vannozza Cattanei, Giulia Farnese, and Fiammetta, who inaugurated the golden age of the courtesan.

Working your way from the Castel Sant'Angelo, pass sites with Borgia associations, such as the noble Palazzo Sforza Cesarini, former home of Rodrigo Borgia. Admire the “talking statue” of Pasquino, and go to the Campo de’ Fiori, site of a meadow and later market in the Middle Ages.
