EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION
A WARM WELCOME AND A COLD GELATO – THE PERFECT START.
We’ll start at the stunning Piazza Navona, a testament to Rome’s status as an outdoor museum. Here you’ll find Bernini’s ‘Fountain of Four Rivers’, one of the most beautiful sculptures in all of Rome. Chat with your guide about why the Nile is pulling a hood over his head, where that obelisk came from, and why the piazza has such a strange shape. The fountain was Bernini’s way of making amends with a pope he angered – a fantastic story that your guide will fill you in on.
Then it’s on to perhaps our favorite site in all of Rome – the Pantheon. A chill-inducing sight, this building is 1,900 years old and still a marvel of engineering. Visiting in the evening, we’ll find it so much more peaceful than usual, so your guide will have space to unlock its incredible secrets – including how Raphael really came to be interred here.
SEE ALL THE MOST FAMOUS SIGHTS OF ROME – IN JUST 2.5 HOURS!
Next we'll take a brief pause from all the art and architecture to treat you to an all-inclusive, traditional Roman gelato - Italy's answer to ice cream whose vibrant flavors are sure to wow you.
After enjoying this sweet treat it's on to The Trevi Fountain. This colossal work is the pride of Rome, which explains why its citizens were so adamant that the architect must be a Roman. We’ll pause here to toss in a coin - or three - and learn the significance of the gesture. Hint: it depends on your intentions – do you want to return to Rome or find your soulmate?
Finally, it's time to grab a couple of postcard-perfect pictures at the Spanish Steps. Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck fans will recognize this as the spot where they bumped into each other in ‘A Roman Holiday’ – the perfect way to finish your introduction to the Eternal City.
BEST PIZZA? TIPPING ETIQUETTE? SMALL GROUPS MEAN YOU HAVE TIME TO REALLY QUIZ YOUR GUIDE.
