Know More about this tour

Starting from the Rome-italy/the-Pantheon">Rome-italy/the-Pantheon">Pantheon, the only completely preserved Monument of Rome - Temple to all the Gods of the People of the Empire - home among others to the Tomb of the painter Raphael - you will start your Roman Experience. The Temple which dates back to the time of Emperor Hadrian (about 120 AD) rebuilt over an earlier one, has the most magnificent domed roof with a circular opening. This roof inspired both Brunelleschis Dome of Florence Cathedral and later Michelangelos Dome of St Peter - still the two most famous Cathedral Domes in Italy. If it happens to rain when you are in the Pantheon, you will find it an unforgettable experience.
You will then continue, few minutes away, to Largo Argentina which contains the remains of several RomanTemples close to the site where Julius caesar was assassinated in 44 BC.
A few minutes away is Piazza navona, the most beautiful square of Rome. Originally the Stadium of Emperor Domitian, the venue for Greek style Games and athletics, it is now surrounded by beautiful late Medieval and Renaissance Palazzi and Churches. In its centre is now Berninis Four River Fountain - his most famous - with others in other parts of the square. The former Roman Stadium is now a beautiful space surrounded by open air cafes and bars. It is full of joy and life at all times, but especially at night.
Hosted by a professional guide specialised in the History of the Capital, this private Tour of Classical Rome, will illustrate special moments of Roman History. If before the tour you inform us of special interest you may have about these monuments, please tell us and your guide will give it particular attention.

    TOO MUCH IN ONE PLACE AND TOO LENGTHY ON EACH FIGURE

  • 06-Dec-2007

    There are three fountains in Piazza Navona, and it was not absolutely clear from instructions which one was the meeting place.
