Rome’s Piazzas and Fountains
Duration: 2 hours/3 hours
Our guide will introduce you to the beauty and wonder of Rome’s Piazzas.
Your walking tour will begin with the elegant Spanish Steps and the Church of Trinità dei Monti.
You can also see the famous Fontana della Barcaccia by Bernini, the Column of the Immacolata and Spanish Embassy to the Holy See.
Then you will next visit the Trevi Fountain built in 1700 by Niccolò Salvi which it is considered one of the most famous fountains in the world (have you seen Fellini’s La Dolce Vita?).
You will have the chance to throw a coin into the Fountain and make your wish.
After that you will go on to the Pantheon, Rome’s most incredible Roman temple built by Hadrian in the II century B.C. This is Stendhal’s description of the Pantheon: “… the most incredible ancient Roman monument is without a doubt the Pantheon. This temple … appears to us as it would have appeared to the ancient Romans”.Next you will visit Piazza Navona which was built on the ruins of the ancient Stadium of Domitian. Here you can admire Borromini’s Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone and Bernini’s spectacular Fountain of the Four Rivers.
From there you will walk to Piazza Campo de’ Fiori, famous for its fruit and vegetable market, and then to Piazza Farnese which is famous for the Palazzo Farnese designed by Michelangelo.
