About the Tour

When we travel, we usually have little time and a lot of things to see. I often see many tourists traveling without grasping the true essence of a place. Sometimes "knowing how to drive also means teaching how to get lost in beauty ..."
Walk in the heart of the city: Campo dei Fiori, Palazzo Farnese, Jewish Quarter, Pantheon, Piazza Navona.
This walk through the squares of Rome is an exploration of some of the most famous monuments and places in the city, we will discover the stories and legends that lie behind the most famous palaces and fountains of the city.

Where does the tour start from?

The walk through the squares of Rome begins in Campo de Fiori , where Giordano Bruno looks at us and the market roars. A few meters further on, you will discover that Michelangelo made his contribution to one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, today the French embassy: Palazzo Farnese!

So keep walking to the Jewish quarter , a choice for those who really want to know all aspects of Rome ... If what you want is the cultural mix of pagan cults, Christian churches and Jewish traditions, you will not be disappointed with this unique place in the world; we will continue with the perfection of an ancient survival: the next stop will be the Pantheon, the Temple of All the Gods converted into a Church, Santa Maria dei Martiri, in the 7th century.
It will not be easy for you to believe in the incredible state of conservation of the building and above all in the size of the extraordinary dome… a single piece of concrete! If it rains you can check if you see a few drops on the floor and check if what the Romans believe is true: “even with a hole in the center, it doesn't rain!”.
Then continue on foot to the spectacular glory of the Roman Baroque Piazza Navona, the largest square of the seventeenth century where one of the most beautiful fountains in Rome is located: the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini . Piazza Navona is also the place to peek among the artists' paintings on the street and to enjoy delicious ice cream!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: To the statue in the center of the square; I will have a sign with the name of the tour.

We took this tour on our first afternoon in Rome - it was a great introduction to Rome and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to Italo. He was a great tour guide and also gave some good restaurant and gelato recommendations. Would recommend!
