A fully licensed guide will show you the most beautiful monuments of the Eternal City, revealing some of its secrets along the way, as well as where to get the best gelato!
Meet by the Keats Shelley Museum on the Spanish Steps and follow the graceful flow of the staircase up to the late Renaissance church of Trinità dei Monti. Continue to the beautiful church of Saint Andrew, site of 2 famous angels by Bernini.
Next, go to the carved Column of Marcus Aurelius, and admire original scenes from the movie “Gladiator.” Walk to the Pantheon to look inside a remarkably intact Greek-Roman temple, just as the ancient Romans used to do.
