Starting your Roman holiday with the City Walking Tour will also help you learn the secrets of navigating Rome – transit, shopping, eating, and activities – all from a local expert.
Everyone who comes to Rome must visit the Spanish Steps - the "5th Avenue" of Rome - where all the world's top designers have set up shop. Take in the magnificent view of Rome from the top of the steps, then stroll down Via Condotti, at the base of the Spanish steps, which is one of the most famous places to shop in the world.
You’ll want to toss a coin into Trevi Fountain, the largest and most famous fountain in Rome as seen in Fellini's La Dolce Vita, ensuring that you will return to Rome one day. Learn the secrets that the fountain holds.
Continue walking among the city’s wonders, you can explore the Pantheon - the temple dedicated to "all divinities." This magnificent building is considered the most well-preserved ancient temple in the world and the most amazing architectural structure of the ancient world. Michelangelo was so impressed with the Pantheon that when he saw it for the first time, he proclaimed it of "angelic and not human design."
You’ll stroll through the bustling Piazza Navona, perhaps the most beautiful square in Rome, which houses three magnificent fountains including the famous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers) by Bernini. Piazza Navona is also one of the liveliest squares of Rome with several quaint outdoor restaurants and cafes. Tradition holds that this piazza was transformed into a naumachia where sea battles took place in the 7th and 8th centuries, and it is said that chariot races once took place here.
You will learn about Roman politics and the Talking Statues of Rome. These five famous statues were once used by citizens to anonymously protest the Pope or Roman government and leak out secrets of corruption not meant for public ears.
End your tour in the popular Trastevere neighborhood where you can get lost in its narrow streets embracing authentic roman spirit and everyday life.
You’ll enjoy a private customized tour, which will include plenty of tips from your local guide on where to shop, where to eat, and ideas of what to do on your own time. The City Walking Tour is a great way to start your Roman Holiday!.
