Having the nickname of the Eternal City, Rome features an almost unparalleled amount of history and culture that millions of visitors come and explore each year. With so many centuries-old landmarks that have remained remarkably preserved over the years, this Historical Rome Walking Tour pays a visit to many of the very best as we set off across this three-hour adventure.
After meeting your guide, we’ll head to the Piazza Navona. Perhaps Rome’s most stunning space, there’s a wealth of ancient churches and palaces to explore. One unmissable highlight is Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers, the incredible fountain and Egyptian obelisk at the square’s centre.
We’ll pass the church of San Luigi dei Francesi on our way to our next stop of Piazza della Rotonda, also known as the Pantheon Square. This part of the city is home to some of Rome’s most historic structures, like the Pantheon and its striking dome and oculus. In addition, many of the nation’s most illustrious figures are buried here, including the painter Raphael, King Vittorio Emanuele II and King Umberto I.
As we continue to explore the rest of Rome, we’ll roam the charming cobblestone streets, passing Colonna Square and Palazzo Chigi as we make our way to the celebrated Trevi Fountain. This is one of the most beautiful landmarks in all of Rome, and you should definitely commemorate it by taking part in the local tradition and throwing a coin over your shoulder.
Next our walk continues to the bustling Piazza di Spagna, which provides a stellar example of Italian Baroque design. Named for the Spanish Embassy that has been located here since the 17th-century, this popular square is also where you’ll find the renowned Spanish Steps. Don’t miss your chance to explore this historic plaza as just some of the marvels to explore include the Barcaccia Fountain, the Trinità dei Monti, and the Keats Shelley House.
Having completed this journey through the ancient streets of Rome, not only will you have visited some wonderfully beautiful places, but you’ll also understand why millions of people continue to visit Rome year after year.
