Full description
Whether you are visiting Rome for the first time or coming back for your annual visit, this tour is perfect for everyone. It includes the absolute ‘musts’ of what to see in Rome and is a great starting point for any holiday. If you’re a first-timer it will help you orientate yourself with the city and get a well-rounded introduction with great photo opportunities! For the old-timers this tour is filled with quirky details and fun facts known only to locals and it may just open your eyes to another side of Rome! So whichever category you fit into, don't miss this unique, fun tour of Rome! Your tour will start off with at the famous Spanish Steps 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. Next, you'll walk to Piazza della Rotonda and admire the exterior of the historic Pantheon. Your guide will fill you in on all the details of when it was built, its history and other interesting facts. You will be able to enjoy some authentic Roman gelato or a delicious coffee as you admire the beautiful architecture and watch the world go by. No Best of Rome tour would be complete without a visit to the Largo di Torre Argentina, a fascinating archaeological site in a vibrant part of the city – complete with 1st-Century ruins, reckless Roman drivers and an abundance of stray cats! The next part of your tour includes a walk up the steps to admire the views from Campidoglio, the piazza designed by Michelangelo. The structure itself is as remarkable as the views – Ancient Rome to the rear and the historic centre at its face. This famous piazza has several secrets to reveal, book your tour today to find them all out! Your guide will also take you through the Jewish Ghetto, where you will see the Portico d’Ottavia, the Synagogue and the remains of the Teatro Marcello – an ancient theatre similar in design to the Colosseum, which has been marvellously integrated into the modern city. We continue our evening walk to Campo de’ Fiori, a site that at one time was noted for exciting races and public executions. Today Campo de’ Fiori is a busy marketplace in the morning and a centre of nightlife after the sun goes down. It’s the perfect place to conclude your evening in the Eternal City after your guided tour. At Piazza Navona, your guide will take you to admire Bernini’s magnificent Four Rivers Fountain in the centre of this iconic piazza, which you will note takes an unusual shape. This piazza is the iconic symbol of Rome, perfectly highlighting how the modern city embraces and incorporates its ancient, medieval, Renaissance and Baroque histories, into a beautiful blend that cannot be rivalled. So if you are wondering what to see in Rome’s Historic Centre, this tour covers it all and leaves you in the best part of the city to enjoy the famous relaxing Roman summer nights!
