"If you love Tosca (and what opera lover doesn't?), you will absolutely flip over this tour of the actual places in Rome where the opera takes place. The guide was a passionate and dedicated guide who showed me everything I wanted to know--inside the church where Cavaradossi was painting, where Angelotti would have been hiding, where the Attavanti Chapel was, the windows in the Palazzo Farnese where Scarpia would have been working, the building where Tosca might have lived, the streets on which she walked, the theatre where she might have been rehearsing, the passageways and taxi stands (still there) where she would have hired a carriage, and the roof on the Castel Sant' Angelo, where Cavaradossi was shot and where Tosca jumped to her death."
