Full description
Discover the main features of the Eternal City with a professional guide, specialized in art, history, and archaeology. Head into the heart of Rome's historical city center with a short stop near the Trevi Fountain, which is known as one of the most stunning fountains in the world — whose legends and myths will be covered by your guide. The tour of the squares and fountains will then continue to the Pantheon. Built as a temple to all the gods of Olympus, the dome of the Pantheon has been the largest in the world since ancient times. You will then head to Piazza Navona. This huge square has been used throughout history for theatrical events and festivals, and is home to sculptural and architectural masterpieces such us Bernini's Four River Fountain and Borromini's church Santa Agnese in Agone. It is considered to be the most beautiful and elegant baroque squares. Continue your stroll visiting a hidden district in Rome. You'll discover a city in the city, full of historical memories like the Ponte district and Santa Maria della Pace church. Along the way, enjoy an external visit of the Holy Castle, one of most ancient buildings in Rome. Built as Hadrian’s tomb, then transformed into the fortress of the popes, nowadays it is one of the most iconic monuments in Rome. The tour will end up by the magical atmosphere of the bridge of the angels (in front of the Holy Angel Castle), right next to the hop-on hop-off bus stop.
