Full description
Your dolce vita adventure begins where the famous film was written by Italy’s greatest film director, Federico Fellini. Enjoy a stroll down the Via Margutta, a street famous for inspiring painters, sculptors, artisans, poets and musicians and learn about the artists that have lived here through the centuries.

Pass by the home of Fellini where he lived with his actress wife Giulietta Masina and as you do you guide will talk a little of about his life and career. Staying with the Hollywood theme, then check out the house that stood in as Gregory Peck’s home in the iconic Audrey Hepburn movie Roman Holiday. Nearby, stumble across the apartment where Pablo Picasso lived, over 100 years ago. Stop at a local cafe that was once the private art studio of Antonio Canova, a well-known and respected sculpture artist of the 19th century. Admire the elaborate marble sculpture as you enjoy a true Roman Espresso (your guide will teach you how to order it, the Roman way) and listen to your guide talk about Italian coffee culture and the many local roasters that have sprung up around the city center.

Your next stop is the Monumental Staircase. A total of 135 steps lead to the Trinita del Monti church that overlooks the Spanish Steps and the Barcaccia Fountain by Bernini. As you wind your way through the atmospheric Roman streets, heading towards the Trevi fountain, stumble across one of the local partner's favorite wine bars, where you will stop to taste local wine from the foothills of Rome, accompanied by local salumi, cheese (including Pecorino Romano) and delicious focaccia bread.

Visit the world-famous Trevi Fountain, which has become the stuff of legend since Anita Ekberg’s midnight frolic caused an international sensation in the 1960 movie that’s given our tour its title. Pass through a shopping gallery dedicated to Roman legend and comedy actor, Alberto Sordi and arrive at the Pantheon, one of the world’s greatest and best-preserved Roman temples.

Your taste of the Roman good life will end at the Piazza Navona, site of the spectacular Four Rivers fountain by Bernini. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your expert local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in ravishing Rome.
