“Three coins in the fountain, Each one seeking happiness. Thrown by three hopeful lovers, Which one will the fountain bless? Three hearts in the fountain, Each heart longing for its home. There they lie in the fountain Somewhere in the heart of Rome. Which one will the fountain bless?”
Do you know the song? Well if you don’t, you will find out what it is about in this highlights of Rome walking tour!
Step into beauty and history!! This 2.5 hours walking tour will take you to the most famous squares of Rome: Campo de’ Fiori, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps! while you admire the monuments, you will be captivated by the stories behind them…tales you won’t find in books!
Fun, knowledge, beauty and no stress with a licensed, expert Roman guide! We’ll show you the best of our city and all you have to do is relax and enjoy!
Where does the tour start and which are the sites you’ll see?
We will start the highlights of Rome walking tour with a glimpse of the real Rome: the vibrant CAMPO DE FIORI, with either the wonderful morning street market or the relaxed afternoon atmosphere, it will be hard for you to believe that executions one took place there!
Walking a few blocks further along you’ll then discover Michelangelo’s genius and his beautiful creation, the Palazzo Farnese. From there we will walk to PIAZZA NAVONA – the largest of the XVII Century squares -“Piazze” in Italian.
Here you will admire Bernini’s baroque masterpiece: the FOUNTAIN OF THE FOUR RIVERS. Piazza Navona is also where you can find street artists and painters but above all…it’s here that you can get one of the best Gelato in Rome, promise!
After this our favourite stop of the Highlights of Rome walking Tour is …The mighty Pantheon! . You will enter the temple with your guide and feel as though you walk on air! This magnificent temple to all gods became a Church in the VII Century … You might not be able to believe how well preserved and how large the dome is …did you know it was build in one solid piece? Look up through the hole in the dome’s centre, did you know Romans believe that no drops of water will not fall inside… even if it rains!
The next stop on our walking tour through this enchanting heart of Rome will wind and weave through the narrow alleys to surprise you with – the TREVI FOUNTAIN…be ready with your coin! You will understand the meaning of the song and we’ll make sure you come back to Rome someday by having you throw a coin into the fountain but…make sure you’re not looking to see where it lands!
Where does the Highlights of Rome walking tour end?
We will then take the short walk to the SPANISH STEPS, the last stop on our walking tour and the last view the Romantic poet John Keats saw before dying in 1821. This is, above all, one of the most beautiful squares in the city! it’s hard to believe that some centuries ago this was a place where wealthy refused to visit here and broke artists once lived!
What more could you ask?! THE HIGHILIGHTS OF ROME WALKING TOUR: TREVI, PANTHEON & Co., in little more than 2 hours you will fall in deeply in love with our city, just like us!
Fullfill your eyes with the beauty, your mind with the words of an expert guide and we are sure no further coin in the Trevi fountain will be needed to let you come back soon!
