Know More about this tour


Navona Square has been defined during the fifteenth century, the Baroque-style Piazza Navona is one of the most charming and popular squares in Rome.The square is built on the former ‘’Stadium of Domitian’’, a horseshoe-shaped arena for foot races built in the 1st century AD. In the square there are three magnificent fountains - Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, the Fontana del Moro, and the Fontana del Nettuno.
Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers) is a fountain in the Piazza Navona in Rome. It was designed in 1651 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for Pope Innocent X whose family palace, the Palazzo Pamphili, faced onto the piazza as did the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone of which Innocent was the sponsor.The base of the fountain is a basin from the centre of which travertine rocks rise to support four river gods and above them, a copy of an Egyptian obelisk surmounted with the Pamphili family emblem of a dove with an olive twig. Collectively, they represent four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority had spread: the Nile representing Africa, the Danube representing Europe, the Ganges representing Asia, and the Río de la Plata representing the Americas.
The Campo dei Fiori in the morning it's a bustling marketplace, that transforms into a nightlife centre in the evening, all amid a beautiful setting steeped with history. Piazza Campo dei Fiori was the place where executions were carried out.
Piazza Campo dei Fiori was the place where executions were carried out. The statue in the centre of the piazza commemorates Giordano Bruno, it was created in 1888 and placed in the centre of the piazza at the exact location of his execution.
The Stadium of Domitian, also known as the Circus Agonalis, was located to the north of the Campus Martius in Rome.The Stadium was used almost entirely for athletic contests.The Piazza Navona sits over the interior arena of the Stadium. The sweep of buildings that embrace the Piazza incorporates the Stadium's original lower arcades.
The Pantheon is without any doubt one of the best preserved ancient monuments in Rome. It is a wonderful example of the reutilization from a Christian perspective of a sacred building consecrated to all Gods. It stands in the heart of the ancient Campus Martius, in one of the lowest parts of Rome, and its imposing facade dominates the southern side of Piazza della Rotonda. In 1870 the Pantheon became the shrine of the kings of Italy and hosts the mortal remains of Victor Emanuel the Second, Humbert the First and Margaret of Savoy and also Raffaello Sanzio, the supreme artist of the Renaissance, is buried in the Pantheon.
The Fontana della Barcaccia is a Baroque-style fountain found at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome's Piazza di Spagna.Two Papal coats of arms decorate the fountain and water gushes out of the mouths of two suns, another symbol of the Barberini family
The church of the Santissima Trinità dei Monti, often called merely the Trinità dei Monti, is a Roman Catholic late Renaissance titular church in Rome. It is known for its commanding position above the Spanish Steps which lead down to the Piazza di Spagna. The church and its surrounding area (including the Villa Medici) are a French State property.
Piazza di Spagna, at the bottom of the Spanish Steps, is one of the most famous squares in Rome. It owes its name to the Palazzo di Spagna, seat of the Embassy of Spain to the Holy See. Nearby is the famed Column of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the middle of the square is the famous Fontana della Barcaccia, dating to the beginning of the baroque period, sculpted by Pietro Bernini and his son, the more famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
The Trevi Fountain is an 18th-century fountain in the Trevi district in Rome, designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762 and several others. Standing 26.3 metres (86 ft) high and 49.15 metres (161.3 ft) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world.

    Luisa was a great guide! Her knowledge of the fountains and squares were fantastic. The pace of the tour was good with plenty of time for questions and pictures. We would highly recommend this tour and Luisa as a guide to see these wonderful fountains and squares in Rome!

    This tour was a wonderful introduction to Rome. As we were the only people who booked it that day, we got a private tour, and were able to learn so much. Highly recommend!

    We took this tour when we first arrived in Rome and are very happy we did, The guide was very informative and if you are a first timer in Rome it gives you a good understanding of how the city is laid out., allowing you to get around much easier on your own.
    Another big plus is the hotel pick up. Especially if you have travelled a long distance to get to Italy the day before. There was a comfort in knowing I did not have to find the meeting point, early in the morning, in a city I did not know well.
    The fountains and squares have so much history and the guide made them come alive.

    Gigi, our Guide was a great guide!

    He was prompt, friendly and whiz with historical and factual details. The two hours flew by as we had our own private Walking Tour. He provided insights that were intricate and amazing.

    The 2-Hour Walking Tour was capped off to a visit to a Gelato shop.

    Thank you, Gigi and Viator!
