Visiting Rome means discovering it step by step: every street, every monument, every corner of the city, is an opportunity to observe what you already know but above all to discover what you do not know.
The discovery tour of Rome starts from the center of Rome, from the Fori Imperiali to Piazza Venezia, continuing towards Via del Corso until reaching the Trevi Fountain.
The charm of Roman history is something that you can not only learn through books or tourist guides but it is something that each of us can really understand and feel only concretely: the starting point of our tour is totally strategic, in fact, the Fori Imperiali, were first the political, economic and social center of ancient Rome, and today they are the historical center of the new Rome, the ruins that surround you during our walk will leave you breathless.
Taking advantage of the pedestrian area we will head to Piazza Venezia that connects the Fori Imperiali (and therefore also the Colosseum) to contemporary Rome: Via del Corso will involve you for its modernity up to take you to Piazza di Spagna where baroque art will have the best on the whole.
To welcome you, in the center of the Piazza, you will find the Barcaccia fountain, sculpted by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in the early 1600s and considered one of the most famous monuments in the world, behind which stands the Spanish Steps dominated by the beautiful church of Trinità dei Monti.
After a little bit of history, to add more magic to this beautiful city, the luxury of Via Condotti will strongly emphasize the contrast in which Rome lives: the one between ancient and modern.
In fact, Via Condotti is therefore connected to Piazza della Rotonda, next to which, near the big names, you can admire the Pantheon and the marble fountain designed by Giacomo della Porta in 1575.
From here on, be sure that you will no longer be able to keep your mouth shut in amazement!
Rome has always been loved by great artists and sculptors and many in the past have fought so that their works cover the streets of the city: crossing Piazza Sant’Eustachio we will arrive in Piazza Navona, built on the ruins of the first stadium wanted by the emperor Domitian .
Piazza Navona is the magic made place.
It is surrounded by Palazzo Pamphilj, the church of Sant’Agnese in Agone, designed by Francesco Borromini and the Fountain of the “Four Rivers” born instead by the hand of the rival of Borromini, Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
At the end of this pleasant walk the guide will suggest you an ideal place to enjoy a good Italian aperitif: relaxation is now deserved.
