Your Private Walking Tour of Rome will begin at Europe’s widest staircase, the Spanish Steps. Did you know that the famous romantic poet John Keats spent the final months leading up to his death in a home just adjacent to the beautiful Spanish Steps? Today his home is preserved as a museum devoted entirely to English Romanticism. Your charismatic guide will explain why these steps have long attracted painters and poets.
Following your visit to the Spanish Steps, you will be led to the enchanting Trevi Fountain. Prepare to be amazed by the size and detail of Rome’s most famous fountain. Almost every movie ever set in Rome features the Trevi Fountain. Do not forget to toss a coin in to ensure a return to la Città Eterna. If you are looking for love, then toss in a second coin to guarantee it. Feel free to be generous as every morning the coins are collected and donated to a charity that helps feed Rome’s poor.
Your walking tour will now proceed towards what Romans consider the very heart of the Eternal City – Piazza Venezia. You are sure to have passed this circular piazza known for its chaotic traffic at some point during your stay in Rome. Four major roads meet in Piazza Venezia – a central hub of Rome – one being Via dei Fori Imperiali. The square is home to the Victor Emmanuel II Monument which has been coined the “wedding cake” monument due to its elaborate layered structure and notable white color.
Of course, no walking tour of Rome would be complete without a trip to the Pantheon, one of the best-preserved ancient monuments in Rome. There are not enough words to describe the majestic beauty of this 2000-year-old monument. Look down and see the Pantheon’s interior floor which is decorated with marbles from all around the world or gaze above you and take in the perfectly engineered dome with its famous circular opening. As you stand inside, it is hard to not consider the limitless potential the Roman Empire once held.
All of this walking certainly calls for a treat, so take a quick break from your Private Walking Tour and enjoy an authentic gelato or Italian coffee, two specialties which are daily staples in Italian life. Feel like a true local as you stop at the bar for a quick espresso or socialize in the nearby gelateria while enjoying some delicious Italian ice cream.
Your tour will end at the picture-perfect Piazza Navona, home of Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers. There are plenty of subtleties in Italian art and sculpture such as the figure representing the Nile on Bernini’s fountain covering his face which represents the then mysterious source of the Nile River. These are the little things which makes Roman art so incredible to learn about and nearly impossible to decipher without a guide. By now you will have realized that Rome truly is an open-air museum and art floods every corner of the historic city center. Stand in the center of the piazza and take in the energy of people bustling, artists painting, and street performers entertaining those around.
There are several bars and restaurants near the piazza, many with outdoor seating. You may want to stay around after the completion of your tour, grab a bite to eat, or spend some time people-watching.

A fantastic experience
"This was our first trip to Rome and words cannot adequately express how good we felt about our Private Walking tour with Livitaly. This is one of those rare cases where I wish it were possible to rate an experience above 5 stars! Our guide was Guilia and she was absolutely amazing, the perfect guide for us. She was kind, engaging, conversational, and incredibly knowledgeable about both the visual Rome we were experiencing as well as history behind it all. We booked the walking tour specifically for our first day in Rome to acquaint ourselves with the city and to set the stage for the remainder of our trip. This was just a fantastic experience and we would not hesitate to book this tour again when we find ourselves back in Rome."
