The passeggiata is a thing Italians have perfected - a slow stroll taken by local Italians to wander with friends, family, (and sometimes foe) through small streets and piazzas. This act reveals the true Italian character, that life is best spent observing the simple intricacies of a beautiful city. And there is no more beautiful a city than Rome. It is known as the Eternal City for a reason. It’s scents, stones, and stories all lend to the perfect stroll. On this live online tour from home, walk through Rome’s centro storico with our local expert guide as they reveal centuries of renaissance vendettas and ancient forays that will keep you totally enamoured for… eternity.
The streets of Rome are filled with a plethora of statues standing at attention for centuries, fountains babbling out fresh water, voices of its local residents singing to each other as if putting on their own version of Puccini’s Tosca. Italians for centuries have used the various public spaces to play out their dramas and love stories of power and prestige, and always, without fail to display a well-executed scandal.
Start at the Spanish Steps learning why we really should be calling them the French or English steps and what is considered so ugly about them. Nonsense! Through stoned alleys we go over to the Pantheon with its sixteen massive monolithic columns, hidden original plans (in plain sight!), and pioneering construction techniques. Here, your guide will share stories unheard and formerly unrevealed.
One cannot visit Rome’s history center without detouring to famed Piazza Navona where a Pope’s vendetta played out for all to see in the various works of art before us. Circle the various fountains by Renaissance artists Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Giacomo della Porta, and see what rival Francesco Borromini had to say about Bernini’s work.
At last you have arrived, it's time to be your personal Anita Ekberg to Marcello Mastroianni. Who? What? Get on this tour! We have arrived at the Trevi Fountain so have your coins ready - or don’t cause we got you covered. Here our local expert will unravel the various myths tucked into the facade, the mismatch of papal insignia, and how you can truly live, la dolce vita.
This tour is excellent for those who fancy a laugh, longing to return to their Roman holiday, those who are planning for the future, as well as anyone with an interest in material culture of immense beauty but not without a touch of humor laced in.
