TOUR DESCRIPTION

Our Rome walking tour includes all the main piazzas and fountains of the historic city center of Rome: the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Piazza Colonna, and Piazza Montecitorio.

This private tour is the perfect way to discover the beauty of Rome, visiting some of the must-see sights of the city. We can arrange this private tour according to your schedule: during the day, or at any time you prefer, including sunset when you can enjoy the atmosphere of Rome in a warm romantic light. At the end of your Rome walking tour, you can also try one of the local restaurants in the area; we would be happy to recommend our favorite choice.

The city center of Rome represents a staggering 2,000 years of history, which you’ll explore with your expert tour guide. It will be a journey through the transformations of the city over the centuries, to discover how the construction of modern Rome has been influenced by ancient Roman architecture and the preexisting Roman ruins.

At the Spanish Steps we will tell you the reason why this famous stairway was constructed and you’ll also learn about the other fascinating historic monuments in the area. What is the origin of the name ‘Spanish Steps’? Were Spaniards involved in its creation? Your guide has the answers! .

Our Rome walking tour also includes one of the most popular attractions in the world: the Trevi Fountain. Only when you’re standing right in front of it you can truly appreciate the magnificence of this monument. People come to Rome from all over the world and throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain. Do you know the significance of this popular tradition? The commentaries of your private tour guide will allow you to understand the history and secrets behind this famous fountain.

Just a stone’s throw from the Trevi Fountain lies another breathtaking monument: the Pantheon. You’ll be amazed by its size and aesthetic perfection, and you’ll gain an even deeper appreciation for this iconic building when you learn about the sophistication of ancient Roman engineering and construction. Constructed at the time of Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century A.D., the Pantheon has been a source of inspiration for architects and artists since the Renaissance. Even today, its dome is still the largest in Italy.

Our Rome walking tour will continue in the area between the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon where you will explore some less famous but equally important sights. The Column of Emperor Marcus Aurelius still stands in Piazza Colonna where it was located in ancient Roman times, while the temple of Emperor Hadrian, today in Piazza di Pietra, is the perfect example of how modern Rome has made use of the ancient city.

Another important sight included in this private tour is Piazza Navona: here you will truly understand the connections between modern and ancient Rome. We’ll tell you about the evolution of the city, and reveal the history and symbolism of the dazzling fountains in the center of the square. The most famous is the Fountain of the Four Rivers, designed in the 1600s by the artist and architect Gian Lorenzo Bernini, whose marble masterpieces transformed Rome.

Take our Rome walking tour and explore the city center of Rome with one of our expert guides. Forget about busy meeting points and no flexibility, and take advantage of our fully-customized service.
