Full description
Tosca is the most famous opera of Puccini and is set entirely in Rome. It is a story about the love and jealousy between Tosca, a young girl of the Roman aristocracy, and Cavaradossi, a famous painter of the time. Visit the actual sites where the drama takes place. Admire the beauty of central Rome as you "travel" through the main acts of the opera. Begin the tour at the Roman ruins of Largo Argentina and visit the church of Sant'Andrea Della Valle, one of the greatest expressions of 16th-century art. Here you will admire the frescoes by Domenichino and Lanfranchi, as well as the first baroque dome of the city. Discover the location of the jealous outburst of Tosca. Walk through the very popular Campo de'Fiori as you get to the second stop of the tour, Piazza Farnese. This is one of the most fascinating squares of central Rome and is where the second act of the opera is set. Here, learn about the history and mysteries of the beautiful Palazzo Farnese, one of the jewels of Renaissance Rome, and of the two twin fountains in the square. Stroll across Piazza Navona with your guide and marvel at Rome's most beautiful monument, the Pantheon. End your tour at the very famous Castel Sant'Angelo, by the Tiber river and close to the Vatican. Discover the long history of this fort, from its original function as the mausoleum of Emperor Adrian, to its role as a hiding place for archives and treasures of the Vatican. It is here that Puccini sets the tragic, last act of his opera.
