The tour start at your hotel where you will meet a local guide. Beginning from the beautiful Piazza di Spagna the tour can be considered a tour of the pearls of Rome. From Piazza di Spagna in which the name is derived  from the nearby Spanish Embassy. since the eighteenth century, designed by De Sanctis, the famous landmark has a  monumental stairway of 135 steps leading into the square Trinita dei Monti which is the name of the church facing the apex built in the sixteenth century. 
From the Spanish Steps the tour continues with a short walk of about 400 metres where we will arrive at the famous Trevi Fountain. The fountains are powered by the Roman aqueduct of the Acqua Vergine. The fountain depicts an ocean on a shell-shaped chariot pulled by sea horses, led by tritons. There is a custom, before leaving the tourist must throw a coin in the fountain and this act ensures the return to the Eternal City. 
Then you will visit the Pantheon, a building of ancient Rome, built as a temple to all the gods of Olympus. The Romans call it the Rotonna, or Ritonna ("La Rotonda"), from which it takes the name of the square. The Pantheon was rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian between 118 and 128 AD, the facade bears the inscription of Agrippa in bronze letters. The dome of the Pantheon is the largest in the world since ancient times. 
Crossing Venice Square, the Roman Forum and after a stanning view of the Colosseum, we will end our tour at  the Piazza Navona which in ancient Rome was the Stadium of Domitian, built by Emperor Domitian in 85 to accommodate the athletic games. Piazza Navona is the pride of Baroque Rome, with architectural elements and sculptures by masters such as Gian Lorenzo Bernini (Fountain of the Four Rivers in the center of the square, which is the Danube, the Ganges, the Nile and the Rio de la Plata, the four corners of the Earth), Francesco Borromini and Girolamo Rainaldi (the Church of St. Agnes in Agony, in front of the fountain by Bernini), and Pietro da Cortona (author of the frescoes of the gallery of the Palazzo Pamphili).
