Rome: Squares and Fountains Private Roman Art Walking Tour

10. Rome: Squares and Fountains Private Roman Art Walking Tour

Enjoy an evening stroll through Rome's imposing palaces and grand piazzas, where water dances in beautiful fountains, and time stands still in enchanting streets. Explore history and art on an impassioned journey to encounter popes and emperors, artists and ordinary people in the places where their lives took shape, where the ancient and the modern join to create the political and religious institutions on which Italian society rests today. Your tour begins in the city's most famous public space, Piazza Navona. The square began life as the Stadium of Domitian in the first century A.D: its distinctive form has been preserved for nearly 2000 years and is still obvious today. Here you will find yourself at the heart of Roman Baroque: spectacular optical illusions and theatrical buildings reveal signs of a revolutionary new approach to architectural space. Discover the twin genius of Bernini and Borromini, the two greatest rivals of their age and opposites in every respect. See Bernini's marvelous Fountain of the Four Rivers, a pyramidal masterpiece that culminates in the flight of a dove. Dominating the skyline above is Borromini's curving facade and bell tower of the church of Santa Agnese, where stone takes on the malleability of the softest clay. In your next stop, Piazza di Spagna, find yourself at the foot of the iconic Spanish Steps.

After short stops at the Colonna dell Immacolata (Column of the Immaculate Conception) and the house of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, reach another of the city's most indelible landmarks, the Trevi Fountain. Here, be lulled by the magical song of the waters, immersing yourself in this wonderful piece of theatrical architecture that both recalls the great buildings of the past and allows you to imagine the impossible architecture of the mind. With the help of your guide, read the many legends written in the relief sculpture of the triumphal arch, where the god Ocean advances with his Tritons and winged horses to celebrate an ancient festival of water.

LOVED riding in the Vespa!! Cuma was a great person to ride with and he was so fun and entertaining! My partner rode behind him while I rode in the sidecar (which I loved). Seeing Rome from a Vespa was a unique opportunity and I’m so glad I did it! We stopped at around 5 different locations and there were 4 other vespas with different tourists riding with us. One of the other Vespa guides told us about the history of each place we stopped at (but the tour is mainly for the vespas, not as in depth of a history tour). We stopped for gelato or another aperitif in trastevere before our final destination, which was a beautiful overlook of the city! Overall, I highly recommend if you’re looking to do something adventurous and unique!

There was a taxi strike during our time in Rome. By some small miracle, I already had the Vespa Tour booked for our first day. I was perfect. It was a cool way to travel with teens and see so much of the enteral city in a few hours. Our drivers were so personable and fun. Our tour guide Stefano was knowledgeable and interesting. The views he treated us to were just incredible. Plus beer and gelato. Perfecto! 5 stars is not enough!!!

Cuma our tour guide and Miko our driver did am outstanding job. They were so knowledgeable and we saw places we would never have known about but for this tour. They were so enthusiastic about their jobs. Made the trip one of the most enjoyable things we have done in Rome. Took the night tour and it’s a great way to cool off after walking around the city in the summer.

this is the best way to see the city the tour guide was great and full of knowledge

our driver Cuma was great he kept telling us about a lot of things i cludi
