What You Can Expect

Rome Squares and Fountains Walking Tour

Rome Squares and Fountains Walking Tour

Visit the Pantheon (meaning "Temple of all the Gods"), a building in Rome which was originally built as a temple to the seven deities in the state religion of Ancient Rome. The Pantheon is the biggest brick dome in the history of architecture and is considered the forerunner of all modern places of worship. It is the most copied and imitated of all ancient works.

Your tour continues at the world-famous Trevi Fountain. The Trevi Fountain is a magnificent example of Baroque art. Its dramatic, natural lines and fantasy creatures embodies movement and inspire a sense of triumph. As your guide will tell you, tradition says that if you throw a coin over your shoulder into the fountain, then you will eventually return to Rome. Toss in a penny and cross your fingers!

Visit St Peter's Basilica, with its instantly recognizable dome! Step inside with your priority skip-the-line entrance tickets and gaze in wonder at its beautiful architecture and mosaics, including Michelangelo's masterpiece, La Pietà. Rich in fascinating history, St Peters Basilica is said to stand on the ground where St Peter the Apostle was buried.

Please note: Rome's Trevi Fountain is currently under restoration until late 2015. A walkway above the central portion of the fountain will allow you to catch a glimpse of the ongoing work. Water will be drained during the process, but you'll still be able to cast your coins into the fountain for luck.

Great trip with a very knowledgeable guide. All guides seem to be so passionate about the history of Rome and are able to transfer this to the group. We were given extensive and interesting information and shown places we otherwise would not have experienced! Well worth it!

Perfect pace, so much relevant information and I got to know so much. Rome means much more to me because of this trip.

A good introduction to some of the must sees on a visit to Rome. The Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon were real highlights.

A nice introduction to Rome for those who haven't been before, the guide was interesting and informative.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2011

Just enough guidance and time at each piazza and fountain to give us ideas about what to do upon our return. Our favorite spot is the Piazza Navono, where we spent several hours over two days enjoying the weather, meals, artists and other tourists. Another wonderful photo op.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2014

Good tour a little fast paced due to the distance and the effort needed to keep a party of people together, well worth the money if only to allow you to skip the queue for St Peter's in the Vatican city.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2014

Very nice places, loved them.
The tourist guide had not enough knowledge of anything, everything she said was very vague. She was not Italian and couldn't give any advice on anything about the city, like other nice places to go or where to have dinner or shop.
you could tell she memorized a book and told everything she remembered about the places we visited.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2014

Beware when you book this - one web page tells you it starts at 10.00am - and despite pointing this out to Viator the information is still wrong - and it doesn't, it starts at 8.30am. This was good but our group was 34 people and it was too big, the guide kept having to stop us and count heads to make sure no one was missing. We thought it was quite informative.
