Description

Experience the Dolce Vita of Rome in a 3 hour guided walking tour of the Eternal City's historic piazzas and discover the wonders of Baroque and Renaissance architecture. Explore Rome and have a glimpse of its remarkable sites taking in the beauty and charm of the Eternal City.

Start the tour at the beautiful Piazza del Popolo, built in the 16th century, and admire the oval-shaped piazza beside the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo. Despite many modifications over the centuries, the piazza still remains to be one of the notable piazzas maintaining its glorious characteristic.

Then, pass by the famous Babuino Fountain going to Piazza di Spagna. Stop by the monumental stairway, Spanish Steps, leading up to the Church of SS. Trinita' del Monti. Admire the Fountain of Ugly Boat, a half-capsized ship, designed by the famed Bernini.

Continue to Piazza di Trevi and get the chance to throw a coin over your shoulder at the Trevi Fountain to ensure your return to Rome one day. With many visitors hoping to come back, an estimated 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain everyday.

Marvel on the well-preserved Pantheon, one of the most influential monuments of Ancient Rome, at Piazza della Rotonda. Built in 27 BC, the temple was dedicated to all the gods of pagan Rome. Pantheon is a perfect example of 2nd century Roman architecture boasting a great mathematical and geometry structure.

Head towards Piazza Navona to experience Rome's most remarkable square for "La Dolce Vita." Once a site of an ancient arena, Piazza Navona retains the form of the stadium used for animal fights and gladiatorial combats.

End the tour at Ponte Sant'Angelo, built by Emperor Hadrian to span the Tiber River. Learn how the bridge was used by pilgrims to reach St. Peter's Basilica and how it was used to expose corpses of the newly executed. The bridge will then lead you to the Castel Sant'Angelo. Commissioned by Hadrian as a mausoleum, the castle went on to house the papal apartments and is now used as a museum.
