My Rome adventure started a few years ago when I moved here from Scotland where I studied Contemporary Art at the University of Edinburgh. I also had a chance to spend 5 months in the USA as an exchange student at SUNY Purchase, NY. I'm from Poland and I've been doing tours in Rome for around 3 years now. I was immediately seduced by Rome's intemperate heart, enchanting with the constant chaos of the modern civilization, somehow perfectly settled within the matrix of the ancient remains echoing the times from a distant past. I'm here to share with you my enthusiasm about the city.
This is a relaxed walk through the streets of the city centre. We will see some famous monuments and stop at some busy piazzas, you can take some amazing photos and I can share what I know with you :). The main idea is to enjoy together the vibe of this wonderful city.
We start at the famous Trevi Fountain, persistently visited by crowds of curious admirers who are being vigilantly watched over by the muscular and pretty serious looking Oceanus. After throwing a lucky coin in its clear waters we move towards the glorious Pantheon to praise the genius of its dome, illuminated by the sunlight graciously coming through the Oculus. From there we continue to one of the most exuberant squares in Rome, Piazza Navona, adorn with three captivating Renaissance fountains. On the way to Piazza Campo de Fiori, known for its traditional food market (yes! cheese, olive oil, spices!), we stop at the statue of Pasquino just to ask how he is doing.
We can even be tempted to pop in to nearby Frigidarium for a delicious artisan gelato (yeah!), or Roscioli for a piece of pizza or suppli. From Piazza Campo de Fiori we continue to the Jewish ghetto with its unique vibe and some of the best places to try some kosher cuisine and traditional Roman dishes. Here is where we end the stroll.
Places we visit/see:
Piazza della Colonna (Column of Marcus Aurelius)
Pantheon (we can go inside - appropriate clothing, cover arms and knees)
Piazza Campo de Fiori
Piazza del Pasquino (Pasquino statue)
Meeting point: Open in Google Maps
How to find me: Piazza dei Crociferi (meeting place), I will be waiting in front of the bank UBI Banca. I will hold a blue selfie stick.

The tour we went on today with Kasia was honestly the best one we have ever been on. Lots of laughing and learning and enjoying the history, traditions and stories and customs. The passion that Kasia showed during our tour really brought it all to I seen parts of the city today that we would never have seen because of this tour and our amazing tour guide. Kasia also emailed us on so much information after the tour of so many more places to go and see. Thank you again for such a amazing day that we will never forget Meri and Claire
