Tour description

Rome is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque cities in the world to explore. Join me on an enchanting stroll through the city centre as we visit some of the major sights that you really shouldn’t miss, plus some of my off-the-beaten-track spots. My route is carefully curated and I make sure to take characteristic little back alleys that few venture down.
We meet at the base of Trajan’s Column, next to Venice Square (Piazza Venezia), in the real heart of the Eternal city.
After getting to know each other, I will begin to explain the ancient Imperial Forum, the unification of Italy, and the rebirth of Rome during the Renaissance. The Trevi Fountain attracts millions of visitors every year and with me, you will find out why! Admire its beauty as I give you the full story behind the fountain and we get to the bottom of the coin-throwing tradition.
The next stop will be in Piazza della Rotunda, the location of the world-famous Pantheon. Experience this most important of Rome’s pagan temples and discover its dynamic uses over 2000 years! We save the best till last: Piazza Navona, which is by far the most elaborate of Rome’s squares.
Absorb the ambiance as we get into the rivalry between the artists whose works have defined the beauty of this square.
We finish near some of the best bars and eateries in Rome! 
On Sunday's we don't go inside the Pantheon, it is closed!

It was a nice tour, with a lot of information. We loved doing this on our first evening, so we got a chance to get to know the city well from the start. Sharon was very knowledgeable and had so much interesting information. We saw so many amazing sights and just learned a lot! Only one minor thing: we were a bit thrown off that the guide started the tour by saying that this tour is not a free tour. We have never heard this at similar tours before. We always expect to tip the guide and tip well if it's a great tour, such as this one, but saying it isnt free felt a bit weird to us.
