Sites you’ll visit

  • Pantheon
  • Spanish Steps
  • Piazza Navona
  • Trevi Fountain
  • The Pantheon, a former Roman temple, is located within central Rome, within walking distance to other well known sites as Navona Square and the Trevi Fountain. Now a functional church, it is the burial place for many Resniense masters such as Raphael as well as 2 kings of Italy. The monument is very unique with a circular, Oculus roof allowing sunlight and even rain into the beautiful church. The original building was constructed almost 2000 years ago and Michelangelo was noted as saying that the design is of Angels and cannot be of human concept.
  • A picture with the Spanish Steps in the background is a must do in Rome! This modern monument was arranged three centuries ago in order to find an architectural connection between the Fountain of the Barcaccia on the street level, by Pietro Bernini, and the Renaissance church standing on the top of the slope. The Spanish Steps are unique for their unusual plan and shape designed by Alessandro Specchi and Francesco De Sanctis. Traditional icon of the Italian Dolce Vita, the Spanish Steps cannot be missed during a visit to the Eternal city.
  • Piazza Navona is littered with Baroque masterpieces, including those of the world famous "Bernini" The area was originally used as an Athletics stadium in the year of 80 AD under Emperor Titus, which later turned into the city's market in the 1500's. The square has kept its original shape and the surrounding buildings were erected upon the ancient crowd stand foundations.
  • The backdrop to many classic films such as "Roman Holiday" and "La Dolce Vita" the fountain is the biggest of its kind in Rome. Work on the fountain started in 1732 after the Popes competition during the Baroque era to build something as beautiful as the Spanish Steps. The creator of the world famous fountain actually didn't win the contest but due to the outcry in Rome over a Florentine having won, Nicola Salvi was given the go ahead!

Tour description

Enjoy a 3-hour walking tour and admire the highlights in the historic city center of Rome: 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 (seen in Fellini's La Dolce Vita), ensuring that you will one day return to Rome. Learn the secrets that the fountain holds.

Continue walking among the city’s wonders, and 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 as an "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 about the Pope or Roman government and leak secrets of corruption not meant for public ears. 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 in your own time. The City Walking Tour is a great way to start your Roman Holiday!
