Artists across the ages invoked divine inspiration to create the finest mosaics, frescos and architectural facades. With our expert theologian as your guide, you’ll marvel at a cultural inheritance spanning centuries.

These incredible places of worship built during the Counter Reformation and Baroque periods are perfect examples of a time when architecture, painting and sculpture had a role in conveying the Catholic faith to all. Beauty abounds at the church of Il Gesu, while trompe l’oeil ceilings and frescoes adorn Chiesa di Sant’ Ignazio di Loyola. You’ll enjoy chapel walls painted by Caravaggio at Chiesa di San Luigi dei Francesi, sculpture by Michelangelo at the Basilica di Santa Maria sopra Minerva.
