Five centuries of Italian art. One world-famous museum.

Unless you know what you’re looking for, the Metropolitan Museum of Art can be an overwhelming experience. During this expertly guided tour, you’ll get straight to the romantic heart of the matter as you explore its Italian galleries in depth.

Things kick off with a look at 14th-century legends Duccio and Giotto, who helped spur the naturalism movement at the behest of the Franciscan and Dominican orders. This seminal shift in the arts changed the focus to more realistic representations -- a movement further developed over the course of latter centuries by artists such as Botticelli.

Your journey will then move into the High Renaissance with a look at the 16th century, when these same naturalistic techniques hit incredible new heights. You’ll also look at the Venetian approach to art, favored by painters such as Giovanni Bellini, Titian, Veronese and Tintoretto.

Next up, Mannerism: a stirring evolution of the styles popularized by the Renaissance, led by Bronzino and Parmigianino. Then, you’ll witness the return to naturalism and classicism by early Baroque greats Caravaggio and Annibale Carracci, and enjoy a more indepth look at how the Baroque era progressed through the hands of several other great painters, eventually growing into the 18th-century style of Rococo.
