This is your chance to experience Rome at it's most magical hour: Twilight. We will explore ancient ruins, marvel at famous monuments and fountains, wander around Italy's most beautiful Piazzas and, to top it off, I will take you for a traditional coffee in Rome's most famous cafe! The tour will begin at Trajan's column, where you will learn about Rome's most infamous emperors and their forums. From here we will walk through Piazza Venezia and then to Galleria Sciarra, one of Rome's best-kept secrets. Next we will visit the Trevi fountain, where you can toss a coin into the most famous Baroque fountain in the world - you might recognise it from a film or two! Next up - the Pantheon. Discover the intriguing history of the most important Roman temple, and perhaps the most well-preserved ancient building in the world. This will be followed by a traditional Italian coffee in a famous historical cafe. The best part - the coffee is on me! Finally, we will take a stroll to Piazza Navona, perhaps the most beautiful Piazza in Rome. I will tell the tale of how it was made famous by the two most legendary Baroque artists and their great rivalry. We will end in an area famous for it's restaurants and bars. NOTE: Group sizes can range up to 20. If you join on a Sunday, the Pantheon will be closed. This experience will be hosted by me or one of my trusted co-hosts or colleagues.
I've had an obsession with Ancient Rome for as long as I can remember. After studying classics I decided to pack my bags and move from my hometown in England to Rome in 2015. Since then I have been working as a tour guide and never looked back! I absolutely love doing what I do and being able to share my knowledge and passion with people from all different backgrounds and places. My favourite part of being a tour guide is being able to show all the hidden gems, secrets and anecdotes that make the Eternal City even more magical to experience. I also co-own and manage a tourist agency here in Rome, offering a wide variety of tours and experiences throughout the city and beyond! In my free time you'll catch me hiking, climbing, travelling and of course doing what we in Italy do best - enjoying my food.
I will be providing a traditional Italian coffee of your choice at Rome's most famous cafe.
We will start at Trajan's column and the imperial forums, then walk through Piazza Venezia to Galleria Sciarra and the Trevi Fountain. From here we will walk through charming cobbled streets to the Pantheon via the beautiful church of St Ignatius, and then to a cafe for coffee. After our coffee stop we will head to Piazza Navona, where we will finish our tour.
I would recommend to check the weather forecast and dress accordingly - if it's raining then a raincoat and/or umbrella will be necessary!
