Art and Architecture in Rome
“I can't keep my love of Rome to myself,” says Frank Dabell, of Context Travel. In addition to leading private and small group tours in Italy’s capital, he teaches art history at Temple University Rome. His favorite spots include buildings such as the Pantheon, a building he considers “the world’s most magical building,” and Gesù, Rome’s grandest Baroque church.
Tour Highlight: The Santa Maria sopra Minerva, a Renaissance frescoed chapel by Filippino Lippi, with Michelangelo’s Risen Christ, two sculptures by Bernini, and several papal tombs.
