THIS TOUR INCLUDES:
Kids: this walk in the squares of rome is for you! Ready for the exploration of the most famous monuments of the city on the hunt for secret clues and hidden animals? A super entertaining guide will accompany you and your family and you will not yawn once!
It starts from a gigantic square called PIAZZA NAVONA! A stunning place with not one neither two fountains but… Three! Each of them hides animals somewhere but the most beautiful of all has an incredible story: ready to learn the name? We are talking about the Fountain of the Four rivers designed by the famous artist: Gian Lorenzo Bernini! Gian Lorenzo hid many exotic animals amongst the rocks, will you manage to find them all? Beyond the sound of the water and the turists’ voices, don’t miss to peek at the paintings of the artists spreaded everywhere in the square and inside the oldest toys shop in town. A clue to find it? Look for… PINOCCHIO!
What is this strange place with the round roof and huge columns? A temple? Maybe a church? Both the things together! And how old is it? More than one can imagine! And why is the floor slanted and full of holes? Well, if you cannot guess after the hints you will receive from your guide, she will reveal it! The Pantheon is like a time machine, as soon as you’ll be inside, you will be transported back to the ancient city of Rome and its rituals! Will you be able to hug the columns with two arms only?
Last part of the tour will be dedicated to the Trevi Fountain and, if you will not be too tired, to the Spanish Steps! But not before having tasted our famous GELATO! Let’s take a break to recharge our batteries and let’s start exploring again!
We will not let you go without tossing a coin inside the most famous fountain in the world! Why? Because we want you to come back to Rome again someday! But this is not the only thing we have to do there, there are little secrets to find out, don’t get distracted!
The tour will end in a Square that takes the name from a European nation and the name starts with “S”! Swiss? No! Sweden? No! Spain? BINGO! Last stop: Spanish Steps.
We will encounter a fountain as usual, with a unique characteristic that we are sure you’ll love, but the real queen of the place is a very very very long staircase! Will you have the strengh to climb it until the top and guess how many steps there are? Let’s Try!
After this adventurous walk in the center of Rome, we are sure you will want to know even more! Maybe becoming little gladiators at the Colosseum? Or discover who was Michelangelo Buonarroti in the Vatican Museums? Have fun!
