Your private guide will meet you in one of the most famous squares in Rome, Piazza di Spagna and your tour will start right away. The huge, white “Spanish steps”, recently polished and restored, make the background for one of Bernini’s most amazing Baroque fountains, called “Barcaccia”, which sits in the middle of the square. Your guide will then point at the overlooking church of Trinità de Monti, located just on the top of the long baroque staircase. This is one of the most enchanting places in town, a popular meeting place for locals and tourists.

You will then follow your guide to the Trevi Fountain, now visible in all its original beauty after recent restoration works. While the famous fountain we see today was erected in the seventeenth century, this source of water has been available to the Roman citizens since ancient times: the site dates back to 19 BC! It is here that, later on, Federico Fellini shot the iconic movie "La Dolce Vita", with Hollywood diva Anita Ekberg and charming Marcello Mastroianni: the film made the fountain famous all over the world!

During your private tour of Rome, you will also explore two of the most renowned piazzas in Rome and the world, Piazza Navona and Campo de’ Fiori. Piazza Navona, today a lively square with restaurants, bars and incredible monuments, has taken the shape of the ancient Domitian Stadium which it was built upon. Two medium-sized fountains by Bernini adorn the short sides of the square, but it’s when you reach its center that you’ll be left speechless. The Baroque "Fountain of the Four Rivers", created by Bernini, is a majestic marble masterpiece, which sits in front of the beautiful Church of St. Agnese in Agone, designed by Bernini’s colleague and rival, Borromini.

Time to walk towards Campo de’ Fiori. Popular today for its daily fruit and vegetable market, this big square hosts the statue of Giordano Bruno, a friar who was executed by fire in AD 1600, whose story your guide will be happy to tell.

Finally, follow your private guide inside the best-preserved ancient building in Rome, almost intact since its first erection in 27 BC: the Pantheon. Once dedicated to all gods, the pagan temple was then turned into a church dedicated to all martyrs and it now hosts tombs of famous personalities such as Raphael and two Italian kings.
