Upon your arrival in Rome you will be greeted by your expert local guide who will lead you on an unforgettable walk in discovery of the heart of the city.
Let yourself be swept up by the liveliness of the Piazza di Spagna, with the splendid 18th Century Spanish Steps and the church Trinità dei Monti, and admire the famous streets of luxury shopping surrounding the center on your way to the enchanting Trevi Fountain. This Baroque marvel is always swarming with eager visitors desiring to visit the place that is the symbol of the Dolce Vita, the sweet life.
Then, walking along the charming streets of the historical center, you'll reach the ancient Pantheon Temple (2nd century BC) with the amazing open dome that is still the largest in the world.
