What to Expect

One of the best orientations to Rome is a stroll through the historical center, with its narrow streets and breathtaking vistas of piazzas, fountains and ruins. All with colorful stories and helpful tips from your guide who brings the city to life on a relaxing walk that takes in not only the major sites of Rome’s but also a few hidden gems. What we offer is an entertaining, personalized way to feel as though you actually live in Rome. If you’re traveling with your kids, this is a great way to introduce them to the fun of history and art.

 

This especially popular twilight Rome walk features a late afternoon stroll from piazza to piazza, where the noise of the crowds is replaced by the soft gurgle of cascading water. As you stroll through Renaissance and Baroque Rome’s extravagant masterpieces, your guide tells you about the great architects and important wealthy families that made the incredible achievements of the Renaissance possible.

 

This introduction to the magic of Rome starts at the elegant Spanish Steps, where generations of world-weary travelers and Romantic poets made their home away from home. As you explore the incredible secrets behind this famous sight, you will also be entertained by intermittent stories of some of the characters who lived in and around the alleys of this beautiful area, including the fiery painter Caravaggio and the young philanderer Casanova.

 

The guided walk continues through the narrow cobblestone streets to the Trevi Fountain where you will get a chance to toss in a coin. Legend says those who do are destined to return to the Eternal City. The next stop is the Pantheon. Although refashioned as Catholic Church, this Roman temple dedicated to all the gods stands as the most stunning example of ancient Roman engineering. Its perfect dimensions and soaring dome have astounded architects and engineers for generations.

 

Near to the Pantheon is the picturesque Piazza Navona, which has immortalized the shape of the Roman stadium on which it was built. This piazza is dominated by the celebrated fountain of Four Rivers, which was designed by Bernini. Here your guide will reveal a great story behind this fountain that involves intrigue and redemption.

 

It is the works and life of Bernini that will greatly color your evening: he was a man who reached the heights of power as the most popular Baroque architect and then dramatically fell from favor. Your guide will show you how to read the signs of his rivalry with the architect Borromini in the very stones of the piazza. The private tour ends in the lively Campo dei Fiori, where the statue of philosopher Giordano marks the spot where he was burned at the stake for heresy in the year 1600.
