A city that traces it's rich history back to antiquity, Rome is home to historic attractions and cultural landmarks on almost every street. On this free guided walking tour of Central Rome, you will be accompanied by an expert historian-cum-guide who will accompany you to the most iconic spots in the Eternal City.
This walking tour begins in Piazza Navona where you will find your guide waiting for you. The exact meeting point is located in the northern part of the square, in front of the "Al Sogno" shop. You can then join the small group and begin your walking tour of Rome.
The tour begins at Piazza Navona - an ancient part of Rome that traces its history back to the 1st century. The square stands on the site of the former Stadium of Domitian, built by Emperor Domitianus. Piazza Navona, even to this day, resembles the form of the stadium's open space and you can easily make out the tracks where races were held. The square also houses the Fountain of Four Rivers and a giant Egyptian obelisk.
The tour then heads to one of the oldest and most iconic buildings left standing in Rome - the 2,000 year old Pantheon. The Pantheon is a mere 10-minutes walk from the piazza and makes for the perfect second stop. The Pantheon was built as a temple by Emperor Hadrian and has since been converted to a church. This also makes it one of the oldest buildings still in use.
After the Pantheon, your guide will lead you to the famed Spanish Steps. The 174-stepped monumental structure was built in the 18th century and it connected the Holy See at the bottom of the steps to the Bourbon Spanish Embassy and the Trinità dei Monti church at the top - thus the name.
The tour group will then head to the Trevi Fountain - the largest Baroque fountain in Rome and the easily one of the most popular in the world. You can partake in the age old ritual of throwing a coin into the fountain to harness good fortune. An estimated €3,000 is thrown into the fountain every day.
Finally, the tour comes to a close at Piazza Venezia - the central hub of Rome. The magnificent Altare della Patria and Trajan's Forum are also situated at the piazza. The main artery of Rome, the Via di Fori Imperiali begins here and leads past the Roman Forum to the Colosseum.
