Your local guide will take you on a pleasant stroll through BAROQUE ROME, where you can admire the Spanish steps, probably the most beautiful staircase ever built, projected by Specchi in 1732 to connect the Church of Trinità dei Monti at the top to Piazza di Spagna at the bottom where the “Barcaccia fountain” by P.Bernini.lies.
Next to the Spanish Steps, along the Via Condotti, you can see Rome’s most exclusive designer and jewellery shops.
At Fontana dei Trevi, your guide will explain why we toss a coin into the fountain. This baroque style jewel, familiar to us thanks to movies such as “Roman holiday”,” La dolce vita” and “3 coins in the fountain” was built in 1735 to commemorate the restoration of the Virgin water aqueduct.
Crossing Via del Corso continuing on to Emperor Hadrian’s temple
The Pantheon, whose dome inspired all the renaissance artists, is the most incredible standing ancient Roman temple where Raphael and the italian kings are buried.
To end our tour we will stop at Piazza Navona, where you will see the ruins of the ancient Domitian stadium, admire Bernini’s famous fountains and Borromini’s Santa Agnese church.
