Charge your camera, as the tour will grant you too many excellent possibilities to make a perfect shot!
Many amazing sights are waiting for us on our walk. The world-famous Pantheon is a five-minute walk from Piazza Navona. The Pantheon was built more than two thousand years ago by the eccentric emperor Hadrian as a memorial to all the pagan gods (pan theos, in Greek, meaning all the gods). This temple from the second century is one of the Roman Empire's best-kept buildings. Its unreinforced concrete dome is still a puzzle to architects!
The Trevi Fountain is our next stop. One of the most beautiful places in Rome is the Trevi Fountain. Anita Ekberg wading in its water made it famous in Federico Fellini's favorite movie La Dolce Vita. Take moonlight shots of the monument, listen to your guide analyze its markings, and toss a coin over your shoulder to ensure your return to Rome. Then, we'll emerge from the twisting alleyways of Rome into Piazza Venezia. Piazza Venezia is the most famous square in Rome. It stretches from the foot of Capitol Hill to the Altar of the Fatherland and keeps a record of the times, from Napoleon to Mussolini.
At the end of your magnificent promenade, your guide will take you down the Via dei Fori Imperiali, the avenue that runs through ancient Rome, past Trajan's Column, and beside Trajan, Augustus, and Nerva's forums.
