After breakfast, pick up from your hotel around 8:30 am to join the DISCOVERING ROME ELITE WALKING TOUR.

As you will immediately note during your stay in Rome, the landscape of the city is punctuated by a never-ending series of picturesque squares and monuments. With this 3 hour walking tour you will see the most famous sites of the city. In a single morning you will move through c enturies and discover Rome’s top attractions. This itinerary begins at Campo dei Fiori, certainly one of the most characteristic squares in Rome  with its  open-air market  and  the  statue  of  Giordano Brunoin  the c enter. Next to Campo de’ Fiori ad mire the magic al charm of Piazza Farnese, which takes its name from the imposing Palazzo Farnese.

A few steps from Palazzo Farnese stands Palazzo Spada; the building is worth a stop thanks to the brilliance of forced prospective introduc ed by the famous architect Borromini. The arc a de c ourtyard is an optic al illusion, in which diminishing rows of c olumns and a rising floor create the illusion of a gallery 37 meters long (it measures 8 meters in reality).

Proc eed then to Piazza Navona, one of the most famous squares in the world. Its original sha pe recalls with extreme a c curacy the perimeter of the ancient sta dium of Domitian built in 89 A.D. . The sym bol  of  the  square is  the Fountain  of  Four  Rivers”,  designed  by  Gian Lorenzo  Bernini and c om peting with Borromini’s famed church Santa Agnese in Agone. In a ten minute walk rea ch Piazza della Rotonda housing the unmistakable structure of the Pantheon (inside visit). The Pantheon, a building of ancient Rome, has been well preserved  and is  a  true  m asterpiecof architecture. Once inside, our expert guide will be glad to give a short explanation about the history and the architectural secrets of the building. In the c enter  of  the  square  see  the  fountain  designed by Giacomo della Porta. From Piazza della Rotonda the distance is short to Piazza Colonna, thus named after the 2nd c entury marble column celebrating the victories of  the Emperor  Marcus Aurelius over the Germanic populations. At present the square is the c enter of Italian politic al life, which gravitates around Palazzo Chigi, the seat of the Prime Minister. Cross Via del Corso and in  just

5 minutes arrive at the Trevi Fountain, a true masterpiece and certainly the most famous and spectacular fountain in Rome. The last stop  of  your itinerary  will  be  Piazza  di  Spagna and  the Sp anish Steps. Extremely original in sha pe, it has always been the meeting pla ce for travelers c oming from  all  over the  world. In  the  c enter of the square  admire Fontana  della  Barcacc ia, a fountain constructed by Pietro Bernini (father of the more famous Gian Lorenzo). This area is surely a pa ra dise for the fashion-conscious shop per and you will find the most important and famous names of Italian style  on  Via  Condottienjoy  and  relax in  the  numerous shops  and  c afes in  the  area  after the c onclusion of your sightseeing tour.
