Your Rome Walking Tour begins at the picture-perfect Spanish Steps and goes on to enter Rome’s maze of charming cobblestone streets. Be prepared to escape from modern-day life and be transported back to the city’s Baroque-era grandeur. Along the way, your guide will recount stories and historical anecdotes bringing to life the history of the fountains, architecture, buildings, and piazzas. Explore the hidden gems of Rome, which can be tucked away in every corner of this magnificent city.
As you weave in and out of Rome’s narrow streets, you will suddenly find yourself in front of the incredible and breathtaking Pantheon. The Pantheon could be considered the most influential, awe-inspiring building in ancient Rome and is the only intact pagan temple left in the city. Don’t take our word for it – Michelangelo himself believed this structure was the work of angels, not men. On this tour, you will have the chance to see for yourself.
Continuing along, your Rome Walking Tour will visit the iconic Trevi Fountain, arguably the most famous fountain in the world. Marvel at its beauty and do not forget to toss a coin in, to ensure your return to the Eternal City! What could be a better way to take a short break from walking, than to stop for gelato at LivTours’ favorite authentic Roman gelateria? The most difficult decision you will have to make is choosing which flavor to try!
The tour will conclude with a visit to Piazza Navona, which is one of the largest and most beautiful piazzas in Rome. The piazza (or square) centers around three impressive fountains, the most famous being Bernini’s Four Rivers Fountain. Engage in the lively scene of talented street artists and musicians or sit down to people-watch. Whatever you do, you are bound to enjoy this grand piazza.
If you have worked up an appetite following your tour, you can enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants nearby. Your guide will be happy to make a recommendation.
