Barocco Rome Guided Walking Tour -  1.5 hours central European summer time

Visit Rome city center with an expert guide. 

Start your tour in Piazza Navona, arguably the most iconic square in Rome. Admire the four rivers fountains from Gian Luigi Bernini, and the Sant'Agnese church from the Borromini, just in front. 

Lose yourself in the narrow streets between Piazza Navona and the Tiber and if the weather is good sip a Café in Piazza del Fico.

Get back to Piazza Navona and cross Corso Vittorio Emanuele towards Campo dei Fiori, where you will find the lively market and one of the best places to taste the Roman "whit pizza" (pizza bianca), in the antico Forno Campo de Fiori. Have a quick look at Piazza Farnese with the impressive Farnese Palace, then continue on via dei Giubbonari to Largo Argentina.

From there, get to the Pantheon, that you can visit without purchasing any ticket (it's a church). Close by San Luigi dei Francesi church and the Sant'Agostino basilica host 3 wonderful paintings by Caravaggio.

Time to taste one of the best Gelato of Rome, so walk towards Giolitti icemaker and café. You can't get it wrong, just folow the queue!

From Giolitti walk towards Fontana di Trevi, where you can throw your coin to make sure you'll be back one day, but before don't forget to stop to visit Sant’Ignazio Church and to admire the amazing trompe l’oeuil painted on the roof.

Continue to the Spanish steps, admire the "barcaccia" fountain from Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and continue walking towards Piazza del Popolo where you will find Santa Maria del Popolo church (quoted in Dan Brown’s “Angels and Demons”) which hosts two amazing paintings from caravaggio and Pinturicchio.

Walk up to the Pincio gardens (wonderful view on Rome) and keep on walking towards Trinità dei Monti. This is Villa Borghese, one of the most beautiful Roman parks, and a fantastic place for your morning jogging.

Continue to Trinità dei Monti where you will have the Spanish Steps at your feet and a wonderful view of Rome.

From the Spanish steps, a 15 minutes walk will get you to the iconic Fontana di Trevi. Don't forget to throw a coin in the fountain to make sure you'll come back to Rome!

Note: your guide may decide to change the order of the visit

Dinner in Piazza Farnese Ar Galletto (suggested)

Ar Galletto serves traditional Roman dishes in an elegant setting, in one of the most beautiful squares in Rome, Piazza Farnese. It's walking distance from your hotel.

Reserve in advance and ask for a table outside.

 St. Peter Cathedral + Shopping Jun 23

Visit St Peter basilica at leisure

 

St. Peter’s Basilica is one of the holiest temples for Christendom and one of the largest churches in the world. Besides, it's where the Pope presides many liturgies all year round.

The construction of the new basilica began in 1506 when the old basilica had been torn down and was finished in 1626. It was consecrated on 18 November 1626.

Several renowned architects designed the temple, highlighting the works of Bramante, Michelangelo, and Carlo Maderno.

The basilica was called St Peter’s after one of Jesus’s twelve disciples known as Saint Peter, who became one of the founders of the Catholic Church and was executed in Rome and buried where the Basilica now stands.

St Peter’s Basilica can accommodate 20,000 people. It measures 190 m (624 ft) long and the central nave is 46 m (150 ft) tall. The dome stands 136 m (447ft) tall.

 

Inside, visitors will find extremely impressive pieces of art, including St. Peter’s Baldachin, a large bronze baldachin designed by Bernini, The Pietà, a sculpture by Michelangelo, and the statue of St Peter on his throne. St Peter has his right foot worn down due to the touches of the devoted.
