Rome City Centre Tour details

In Rome there is something of interest around every corner, so much beauty, art, history and legends to discover. Walking is by far the best way to explore the city centre because monuments are located very close each other. As you walk around the enchanting Rome, an expert and knowledge English-speaking guide will make connections about ages and will tell a lot of anecdotes.
We have planned a full day tour more comprehensive than others. You will visit what is for sure a “must-see” and you will go “off-the-beaten-path” as Rome has too much to tell.
Our motto is “Do as the Romans do”. That’s why  we have the pleasure to treat you with a brunch, away  from touristy restaurants. The itinerary is split in two halves to allow some time for  your lunch and take a break.
Let’s start a walk through the very heart of the Eternal City. Let’s understand why Rome has been enchanting visitors for centuries! Rome City Centre Tour will take you to:

Trevi Fountain
Belvedere del Pincio

Piazza Navona

Jewish Ghetto

Piazza Venezia and Vittoriano

Love it or loathe it, as many Romans do, you can’t ignore the Vittoriano. The huge mountain of white marble towers over Piazza Venezia. Built between 1885 and 1911 to honour Italy’s first king, Vittorio Emanuele II, it provides the dramatic setting for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Even if Vittoriano  is not exactly known as one of Rome’s most beautiful monuments, it is nevertheless well worth the visit, even if only for the great views from the top.
Vittoriano it’s also know as Altar of the Fatherland,  Altare della Patria. But, as many Romans don’t like it, it is also know by few ironic nicknames:  “The Typewriter,” “The False Teeth,” or “The Wedding Cake”.

Toss a coin in Trevi Fountain

A short walk will take us to the  Trevi Fountain, known as one of the most stunning fountains in the world. This colossal Baroque monument is the pride of Rome, a beloved landmark ever since its construction, in the 18th century. Its history begins much earlier, though, as Trevi Fountain is one of the oldest water sources in Rome. The fountain is at the end of Aqua Virgo Aqueduct, built  in 19 BC, and provided fresh water for centuries.
Once there, you have to toss in a coin – or three – and learn the story of this tradition. Hint: it depends on your intentions. Do you want to come back to Rome or find your soulmate?

Climb the Spanish Steps

A walk through charming backstreets takes us to Piazza di Spagna: the monumental staircase, the  obelisk, the fountain and the beautiful church is the perfect combination for photo lovers.  The view is breathtaking!
Piazza di Spagna is one of the most famous square in the world, as well as one of the most stunning Rome’s monument. Taking its name from the nearby Spanish Embassy, the square is  surrounded by graceful old buildings and palm trees.
The world famous Spanish Steps, an elegant staircase that leads to Trinità dei Monti, is the perfect frame of the square. The Barcaccia Fountain represents one of the finest example of Baroque art and hides a really unique story.  According to legend, when Rome was devastated by a flood of the river Tiber, a boat was stranded exactly where the fountain is now.

Enjoy the view from Pincio Terrace

From Trinità de’ Monti you make a stroll towards the Pincio Terrace. From this panoramic view point you can see Rome’s rooftops and churches domes scattered everywhere. Straight forward the enchanting skyline of Saint Peter’s dome.

Get a hug from Piazza del Popolo

Down from the Pincio, here you are in Piazza del Popolo. The amazing square seems to hug you!  Arriving in Rome on 1 November 1786, Joahn Wolfang Goethe entered through Porta del Popolo. He was astonished from the square and the view, He wrote in his diary:”I can finally speak and greet my friends with joy. Please pardon the decrecy and mystery of my journey until now. I was not yet at ease on my journey and only when I entered Piazza del Popolo was I certain that I would enjoy Rome”.

Via del Corso and the Tridente

The Tridente is the name of three streets. Via del Corso, Via del Babuino and Via di Ripetta born from Piazza del Popolo before diverging.  Here is where the heart of Rome pulses. Here is the treasure that the Baroque age left, along with a vibrant mix of trendy shops, luxury hotels and churches. Via del Corso is the main and longer one. You will see Via dei Condotti, a cozy square called San Lorenzo in Lucina, the House of Parliament and the House of Government. Along the way, you meet Marco Aurelio Column, standing there since 192 AD, telling the story of Marco Aurelio’s victory.

The Pantheon

Built more than 1900 years ago, the magnificent Pantheon still stands as a witness of the great Roman Empire. It’s the most well-preserved Ancient Roman buildings in Rome. The name Pantheon refers to the building’s original purpose, as a temple for all the gods. With its thick brick walls and large marble columns, the Pantheon impresses visitors, who often consider their tour of the Pantheon one of their most memorable experiences in Rome. The most remarkable part of the building is the forty-three meter high dome.  At the top of the dome is a large hole, the oculus, which was the only source of light.  Your guide will tell you the story of the Pantheon, explaining how it was constructed using revolutionary architectural techniques. The temple was converted into a Catholic church in 609.

Saint Louis of the French

Before going to Piazza Navona, you will make a stop at Saint Louis of the French church, where three Caravaggio’s paintings show his mastery of “chiaroscuro”. Caravaggio is one of the most important Italian painter. He became famous for the intense realism of his works.

Piazza Navona: the shadow of the stadium

Now, it’s time to go to Piazza Navona, a masterpiece of Baroque art, an open-air museum.  Its romantic atmosphere will last in your memories for ever.
The piazza is famous for Bernini’s ‘Fountain of Four Rivers’, one of the most beautiful sculptures in all of Rome. The fountain features four statues, representing a river from a different continent,  Nile, Ganges, Danube and Rio de la Plata. The statues surround an obelisk, originally located at the Circus of Maxentius, on the Appian Way.
As you stroll through the square, you will pass painters and street artists. You’ll also find out how the piazza came to have such a peculiar shape. Piazza Navona sits above the remains of the Stadium of Domitian, a 1st century stadium. In the 15th century the stadium was paved over to create Navona Square, but signs of Domitian’s stadium are still recognizable.

Rome City Centre Walking Tour continues after lunch break. We have choosen a small bistrot that offers genuine Roman food. Enjoy a fresh pasta dish, you can choose from a selection of different style of sauce and kind of pasta, a bottle of water is included.  No waste of time wondering where to eat.

After lunch it’s time for Campo de’ Fiori

Piazza Campo dei Fiori was once a field of flowers, and thus the name. Thanks to the prominent buildings surrounding the piazza, such as Palazzo Orsini, Campo de’ Fiori became very popular. Shops, inns and taverns made this neighborhood one of the most rich of the city. Moreover, Campo de’ Fiori was the location where a horse market took place twice a week. Campo de’ Fiori is currently one of the most lively neighbourhood in the city. Since 1869, every morning from Monday through Saturday it houses a market that was well-known for flowers and fruit and vegetable.

The Jewish Ghetto

A Rome walking tour is not complete if you miss to visit the Jewish Ghetto. It’s Rome’s most incredible off-the-beaten-path attractions. Situated on the right side of Tiber Island, the neighbourhood is a haven of tranquility in the traffic of Rome. Let’s see what you meet along the way.
The Great Synagogue of Rome, this impressive building is pretty new by Roman standards. The Synagogue was officially completed in 1904.
The Turtle Fountain, a Renaissance fountain. Originally built as a drinking fountain, the water sourced from the Acqua Vergine, one of Rome’s first aqueducts.
The surreal ruins of the Porticus Octaviae: built in the II century BC and restored during the Emperor Augustus’ reign.
Teatro Marcello: Before going to the Capitoline Hill, you will pass by Teatro Marcello, named after Marcus Marcellus, Emperor Augustus’s nephew. It’s also known as the Jewish Coliseum for its resemblance to the original Colosseum, that was built later, on 80 AD.  This ancient, open-air theater once held approximately 11,000 to 20,000 spectators.

Capitoline Hill

Our tour will end at Capitoline Hill, the smallest and yet most important of the seven hills of Ancient Rome. It was the political and religious heart of Rome, the hill became a symbol of Rome’s reign as “Caput Mundi”, capital of the world. Today the hill still symbolizes the heart of Rome as it is home of the Mayor of Rome, but  only traces of the ancient temples are recognizable.
From Piazza del Campidoglio you can walk straight to the Vittoriano, where our Rome City Centre Tour started in the morning.
