Sightseeing Rome: the Borgia family led by patriarch and Pope Alexander VI was one of history’s most powerful and infamous crime dynasties.
2 participants maximum
Murder, intrigue, lust and money swirled around this Renaissance-era clan.
Rodrigo Borgia, who later became Pope Alexander VI, and his son Cesare personified all of man’s evils.
Our original and captivating “The Borgias” Tour takes you into their daily life in Rome.
You’ll see where the Borgia clan lived and sinned. Pope Alexander VI and his family ignored most of the ten commandment in their quest to amass and retain power, influence, and enormous wealth.
You’ll be mesmerized by visits to among others the pope’s mistress’ brothel. Titillating stories will be told about the prostitutes who competed for the Borgias’ attention. You also learn what is fact and fiction. Not every evil act attributed to the Borgias was committed.
The Borgia family’s drama has recently captivated television audiences in two separate television series. Academy Award-winner Neil Jordan created a program that ran for three seasons. Jeremy Irons starred as Pope Alexander VI.
“Borgia” featuring John Doman as the family patriarch is a French-German co-production that is still airing.
Our half-day Borgia Tour in an electric golfcar shows most of Rome’s highlights, including Saint Peter´s Square, Trevi Fountain, Navona Square and much more.
