This tour will aim to make you stroll through the extraordinary views of Rome from the Baroque period.
It is the most “shameless” garment in the city, the least hidden and the most blazing. You can not walk through the center of Rome without coming across one of the masterpieces of Baroque art.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the streets and alleyways of the center, with the city’s most famous and symbolic monuments.
Castel Sant’Angelo and the bridge of the angels: your day will start with a guided tour of Castel Sant’Angelo and the bridge of the angels. This is considered one of the oldest bridges in Rome. Adriano had it built in 136 to access his mausoleum on the Tiber. The decoration of the Sant’Angelo Bridge with its 10 statues was initially performed in the 16th century under Pope Clement VII. One of the best sculptors, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, sculpted the 10 angels who gave the bridge its name.
Piazza Navona: The tour moves to Piazza Navona, one of the characteristic squares of Baroque Rome. The most beautiful baroque square in Rome occupies the track of the ancient “Stadio di Domiziano”, or “Circus Agonalis”, of which it has perfectly preserved the elongated rectangular shape of the arena. Built by Emperor Domitian before 86 AD, the stadium was used for gymnastic competitions and, together with a neighboring Odeon for competitions and musical performances, it was a real sports-cultural complex. Explore this gem in the middle of the city, with, in the center, the famous fountain of the four rivers created by Bernini. With its fountains, colors, facades and street artists, this square offers countless occasions of Roman beauty.
Trevi fountain: The monumental Trevi Fountain is one of the most famous tourist attractions of Rome, thanks to the famous scene of Fellini’s film “La Dolce Vita” of 1960, when Anita Eckberg dives into the pool inviting Marcello Mastroianni to do the same. According to tradition, those who want to return to Rome must throw a coin into the fountain, turning their backs with their eyes closed. The fountain owes its name to the fact that in Rome here they crossed “three streets” and later became “Trevi”.
Spanish Steps: The tour ends at the Spanish Steps. With its 138 steps and its graceful balustrades, the Spanish Steps lead up to the Trinità de ‘Monti church. At its feet is Via Condotti, the street of high fashion, where boutiques and shops of the most prestigious designers present their latest creations. At the center of Piazza di Spagna is the fountain called Barcaccia, designed in 1629 by Pietro Bernini, father of the famous sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini. A splendid baroque fountain with the original shape of a boat.
