Rome - the Eternal City. This is what comes to mind when hearing the name of Italy’s capital. Rich with thousand year old monuments, it leaves its visitors thrilled and stunned by its beauty. If you are eager to discover Rome’s best-kept secrets, this tour is the perfect choice for you! Quench your thirst for knowledge and join this three-hour guided visit. While strolling through the cobblestone streets, you will not only explore piazzas and fountains, but learn of exciting legends that your local guide is happy to share with you.

Your tour will start with a highlight - the city is full of beautiful piazzas, but Piazza Navona is arguably the most elegant one. Once a stadium, it is now the perfect place to explore the spirit of modern Rome. Dive into the Italian way of life and enjoy the cosmopolitan atmosphere of this place, where colors, music, bars and events create a truly unique ambiance. Listen to the stories of the baroque Rome and fall in love with the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Did you know the fountain represents the four angles of the earth with the Danube, the Ganges, the Nile, and the Rio? Discover every corner of this unforgettable square with your local guide!

Afterwards, you will be on your way to see the Pantheon. Built in 27 AD, this ancient temple is dedicated to the gods of the past, present, and future. By visiting this famous landmark, you can literally breathe in the history of ancient Rome. While admiring the biggest Roman concrete cupola in the world, your guide will provide you with legends behind this magical place.

After a dive into the past, it’s time to step into the present. Just a stone’s throw away from the ancient temple, you will find Colonna Square, which name dates back to the Marco Aurelio column. Located right in the centre of that same square, its majesty and elegance will take your breath away.

Being the heart of Rome’s bourgeois lifestyle, the square is surrounded by buildings of great importance such as Palazzo Chigi (seat of the Italian government), Palazzo Wedekind (historical place of business of Italy’s famous newspaper Il Tempo), Palazzo Ferrajoli (seat of the consulates of the regions Friuli Venezia Giulia and Valle d’Aosta) and the Alberto Sordi Gallery (historical meeting place of Rome’s high society).

Next, enjoy a luxury for the eyes and for the heart. Follow in the footsteps of the great movie director Fellini, who changed history with his masterpiece “La Dolce Vita”. Even 60 years after its release, the film still has a major influence on Italy’s image around the world. Take the chance and feel, at least for a few seconds, like Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni. The Trevi Fountain will not only offer you breathtaking views, but also beautiful photos to forever remember Rome.

To conclude this magical morning in Rome, you will be taken to the world-famous Piazza di Spagna, where you can admire the Barcaccia Fountain. Sculpted by Pietro Bernini and his son Gian Lorenzo, this fountain depicts a semi-submerged boat in an oval tank, surrounded by crystal-clear water.

The monumental Spanish Steps will lead you to the Church of the Trinità dei Monti, one of the 5 Francophone Catholic churches in Rome, and a lovely backdrop. In this eighteenth century atmosphere, you can finally give yourself a little rest and - why not - a bit of regenerating shopping among the high fashion boutiques, bringing you back to today's glitz.
