The city of the Caesars, of Baroque and, of course, The Eternal City. Discover Rome with this free walking tour of the Italian capital.
Free Walking Tour of Rome
Our free walking tour of Rome begins in the central Piazza di Spagna. We'll learn of the history of this mythical place, internationally known as the backdrop to numerous cinematic scenes, such as Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday.
Our free tour of Rome continues, visiting some of the best known artistic sites. If Florence is the city of the Renaissance, then the Italian capital is the city of Baroque. We'll learn the characteristics of this art style alongside the Trevi Fountain, the masterwork of sculptor Nicola Salvi. It became all the more famous with its appearance in the Fellini film 'La Dolce Vita', in which Anita Ekberg bathes in its waters.
On our guided tour of the Eternal City, we'll also get to admire one of the best-preserved monuments from Imperial Rome: Agrippa's Pantheon.
Having taken in some of the other highlighted monuments in the historic centre of the Italian capital, we'll culminate our free tour in Piazza Navona. Which rivers do the fountains of this square represent? Is it true that mock naval battles were celebrated here in the Imperial era? As a final flourish on our tour, we'll reveal the answer to all these questions.
