This great tour offers the best of history and art in Rome, you will visit the most important sites of the eternal city. Enjoy the Colosseum, the most important Roman amphitheater and the largest in the world, capable of holding a number of spectators estimated between 50,000 and 80,000 units. It is the most imposing monument in Rome and is known throughout the world as a symbol of the city of Rome and its nation. The tour will continue to the Capitoline, the lowest and the least extensive of the seven hills of Rome, since ancient times it has been the hub of the political and religious activities of the city. The games were held in the Circus Maximus, your nextstop, an ancient Roman circus dedicated to horse racing and located in the valley between the Palatine and Aventine hills. The tour continues and you will visit several beautiful squares and picturesque monuments. The first is Navona Square (Piazza Navona), built on the ashes of the Stadium of Domitian and used in antiquity for athletic contests and competitions of various kinds. Today in this square you can find many street artists, painters and portraitists. Do not miss the Fountain of the Four Rivers and the Church of St. Agnes in Agony, a triumph of Baroque. With a short walk you will reach the Pantheon, the temple dedicated to the gods of ancient Rome which boasts several primacies: it is the best preserved, has the largest masonry dome in the history of architecture, is considered the forerunner of all modern places of worship and during the years, it was the most imitated. Then you will see the Trevi Fountain, in rococo style, overlooking Piazza di Trevi. Before you leave, do not forget to throw a coin in the fountain. Custom has it that travellers doing this will one day return to the eternal city. Those seeking a little romance, perhaps even an Italian love, should then toss a second, third coin to make sure wedding bells will soon be chiming. This fountain has been the scenography of a famous scene from “La Dolce Vita” from Federico Fellini: a provocative Anita Ekberg in a long black evening dress, calls out for Marcello Mastroianni, “Marcello, come Here!” as she glides through the fountain’s sparkling waters.). Another essential stop is Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna): the ocher-colored buildings encircle the Bernini’s fountain and the Spanish steps. The church Trinita dei Monti contributes to the creation of a refined atmosphere. Ancient home of famous poets such as John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley, the square today is a cultural heritage of inestimable value. After a break for lunch, our tour will focus on the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. In the Sistine Chapel, you will stop to admire the” Creation” and the” Last Judgment”, which are the most important paintings by Michelangelo. The Chapel is decorated with frescoes by other great artists such as Botticelli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio and Signorelli. From the Sistine Chapel, a beautiful staircase designed by Bernini, leads to the interior of the Basilica of St. Peter. Here you will find other masterpieces such as the famous “Pietà” by Michelangelo and you will visit the magnificent dome.
