Tour Description

On this stroll through Rome's Historic Centre you will cross paths with locals going about their busy days, while you visit some of the most important emblems of the city.

Learn the stories behind some of the most important monuments in Rome, in the context of the era during which each was built, 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"!

The Spanish Steps

The area of Piazza di Spagna - in a valley at the foot of the Pincian Hill - was associated with the Spanish contingent in Rome during Medieval times. The so-called "Spanish Steps" were built to allow the people living in this area access to the beautiful Baroque church at the top of the hill. The piazza is also home to a Bernini fountain with pure water from mountain springs, where you can refill your water bottle!

The Trevi Fountain

is probably Rome's most iconic fountain, and is a must-see for those with romance in their hearts! This monument, too, has a surprising connection to Rome's ancient past. Throw your coin in the fountain and guarantee your return to Rome - or so the legend says!

The Pantheon

The Pantheon is another wonderful example of how the Romans liked to recycle ancient buildings, to ensure no structure would be left to waste and ruin! Originally a pagan temple, built 1900 years ago, it survived in its original state throughout several earthquakes and fires in Rome during the Middle Ages, and today is a venerated Catholic Church. This mystical building hides some architectural marvels which your guide will explain to you. 

Piazza Navona

Piazza Navona, as you will see and your guide will explain, was once a stadium built for public entertainment in Ancient times, and still today retains its original elongated shape. Among the residential buildings and modern restaurants and coffee shops, it also hosts a Baroque-era churches and three fountains, all designed by two of the greatest architects from the 1600s – Bernini and Borromini. Discover some of the truths and mistruths of Dan Brown’s novel Angels and Demons while in this square! 

Campo de' Fiori

A celebrated and picturesque market by day quickly turns into a hub for nightlifers in the evening. The piazza, in the morning heaving with people bustling among the fruit and vegetable stands, at night sees its restaurants and bars open for business.

This is the perfect Rome Tour for the first day of your visit, on which to orientate yourself with the city and get a nice introduction with many great photo opportunities, without too much walking, so don't delay ... book today!
