The Fantastic Monuments of Roman Architecture
This tour lets you discover three of the most important attractions in Rome: Piazza di Spagna, the Virgin aqueduct, and Fontana di Trevi. Moreover, you have the unique chance to access the underground of Fontana di Trevi: a wonderful place that is usually closed to the public.
You start off in the Piazza di Spagna, where you are able to view all of the breathtaking architecture before traversing the 135 steps that lead to the beautiful Church of Trinità dei Monti.
These steps were designed by Alessandro Specchi and Francesco de Sanctis after being commissioned by Etienne Gueffier nearly three centuries ago.
The Fountain of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita
Take in the breathtaking beauty of this area of Rome after a leisurely ascent up the stunning stairs, and see the famous Fontana della Barcaccia—a fountain created by father-and-son duo Pietro and Gian Lorenzo Bernini—before making your way toward the Trevi Fountain during this highly educational walking tour.
On the way, we enter a big store in Rome, which has a surprise in the basement—a stretch of the Virgin aqueduct, which once transported water to the Pantheon and is used today by the Trevi Fountain.
You get the chance to admire the famous Trevi Fountain, a monumental fountain known worldwide for its amazing structure and for the most famous scene from the movie La Dolce Vita.
An Ancient Roman Alley
At this point on the tour, you visit the Vicus Caprarius, an Ancient Roman alleyway and road that serves as the entrance to one of Rome’s most treasured landmarks: a tank of the Virgin aqueduct.
