On this small-group evening walk you’ll see the sun setting over the churches, romantic squares, and fountains of Rome. Your guide will take you to the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and the beautiful Piazza Navona with Bernini’s 4 Rivers Fountain.
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”!
On this 3-hour evening walking tour you’ll meet your guide at Piazza del Popolo, where churches, fountains, and monuments tastefully embellish the square. Walk up to the Pincio Terrace to admire the sunset over Rome and enjoy breathtaking views over the city.
Visit 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.
Visit 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.
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 races and executions. In the center of the square you’ll see the statue of 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.
