This is the perfect Rome tour for the first day of your visit, to help you orientate yourself with the city and get a nice introduction with many great photo opportunities, without too much walking!
You’ll learn the stories behind some of the most important monuments in Rome, how they have evolved with the city and the purpose they serve today. You will see how ancient, medieval and modern all mix together to create a delightfully unique atmosphere in what is, after all, the “Eternal City”!
Your personal guide to Rome will take you to the famous Piazza di Spagna and Bernini’s Barcaccia Fountain. Continue your walk to the stunning Trevi Fountain, which is the largest baroque fountain in Rome. Legend has it that if you toss a coin over your left shoulder into the Fountain you’ll return to Rome one day.
Next, you’ll walk to the Piazza della Rotonda and admire the exterior of the historic Pantheon. Built in 27 B.C. the Pantheon was dedicated to all the Roman gods. In the 7th century, it was converted to a church dedicated to Mary and the martyrs. It is also the resting place of some major Renaissance artists, including Raffaello.
From here, you’ll wander on to admire Bernini’s magnificent 4 Rivers Fountain in the center of iconic Piazza Navona. The square also features other important sculptural and architectural creations, including the Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone by Borromini, Palazzo Pamphili, the Neptune Fountain at the northern end and the Moor Fountain at the southern end.
End your evening walk at Campo de’ Fiori, a site that at one time was noted for exciting races and public executions. In the center of the square you’ll see the statue of philosopher and cosmological theorist Giordano Bruno.
Today Campo de’ Fiori is a busy marketplace in the morning and a center of nightlife after the sun goes down. It’s the perfect place to continue your evening in the Eternal City after your guided tour.
