Become Enchanted by the Eternal City
Let the Eternal City enchant you as you stroll through its picturesque cobblestone alleyways and discover some of the world’s most famous sights – all in a single afternoon! We'll see the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and the Spanish Steps along with many of the city's unsung heroes. With your expert, English-speaking guide on hand you'll get to know Rome, hearing the tales that bring every street corner to life.
Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain
Our Best of Rome tours start at the Spanish Steps, one of the most evocative spots in Rome. From there we trace a path through the cobbled streets of the city to the colossal Trevi Fountain – part water feature, part magnificent sculpture. Listen as your guide explains the strange history behind this famous monument, including the reason why there’s one spot from which the entire structure is hidden.
Heart of Rome
You’re in the very heart of Rome now, where narrow streets snake out in every direction. We’ll stop for a gelato and to recharge our batteries before making our way to the Pantheon. Here you’ll see Raphael’s tomb and learn the real cause of the famous artist’s death. Not so far away from here, it’s another artistic genius who steals the limelight. Perhaps the most beautiful square in all of Rome, Piazza Navona is home to spectacular Renaissance buildings and Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s beautiful 'Fountain of the Four Rivers', the sculpture that saved his reputation after he almost tore St. Peter's Basilica in half.
Our tour ends in Campo de' Fiori, a favorite hangout among locals. Like so many of the sights you’ll visit on your tour, this piazza has a history you never would have guessed, but with your expert guide on hand you'll feel like you can reach out and touch the past with your hand!
Intimate, Small Groups
With small group sizes of only 25 people or less and headsets provided, your Best of Rome tour will be unhurried, your guide easy to hear and interact with.
