Come with us!
Well start exactly from there. You will meet our guide in front of the entrance of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca, close to the square Piazza di Trevi and to the impressive Trevi Fountain. When you get close to the fountain, dont forget to throw a coin into it - its the best magic trick to come back in the Eternal City again!
Then, your next stop will be the famous Piazza di Spagna with the Barcaccia fountain, by Bernini, in the center of the square. Since 18th century, both Romans and foreign travelers have loved their romantic atmosphere, the classy cafes and boutiques and the nearby monumental Spanish Steps. Up the stairs, you will also able to admire the picture-perfect Church of Trinità dei Monti - another emblematic panoramic sight of Rome.
Finally, after a nice walk through the streets of the capital, you will arrive in Piazza Navona. It was built over an ancient Roman arena, but its still considered one of the most joyful and elegant squares in the whole city. Again, its main attractions are three monumental fountains: the breathtaking Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, representing the four big rivers Nile, Ganges, Danube and Rio de la Plata as giant human beings, and the Fontana del Nettuno at the northern end and the Fontana del Moro at the southern end.
