SmarthistoryTravel: Rome, A First Look

Art can be tricky. Imagine the rewards of strolling through the Vatican Museums or the Galleria Borghese in Rome with friends who are also art historians. SmarthistoryTravel apps are for curious, thoughtful travelers who want expert art analysis delivered in a casual, engaging style. Smarthistory brings the artists, patrons, and their worlds to life. Join us as we reveal the meaning and beauty of Rome in a way that the standard guide-books can’t. The initial app in this series, "Rome: A First Look," is available in the travel section of the iTunes App Store. We will launch a second app, "Rome: A Closer Look" later this summer. Additional apps that focus on art in other cities will follow. Proceeds from SmarthistoryTravel support Smarthistory, Inc., a not-for-profit organization. Enhance your travel experience and support Smarthistory at the same time.
