Leave the Gallery and walk for about ten minutes on Via Rasella up to the gorgeous Trevi's Fountain
, iconic image of the Eternal City. Then, head to Piazza Venezia, to admire two Renaissance masterpieces: Palazzo Venezia
, the best example of Renaissance palace (hosting Museo di Palazzo Venezia, sadly famous for the balcony used by Benito Mussolini for his speeches) and Piazza del Campidoglio
, projected by Michelangelo, and currently seat of the Town Hall and the Capitoline Museums.
Piazza Venezia is also the location for the amazing experience of the Roman Domus of Domus Romanae di Palazzo Valentini
, offering visitors an evocative travel back in time to Ancient Rome. We are now a stone's throw from Via dei Fori Imperiali
, the access way to the Imperial Rome.
The itinerary continues towards the city center, towards Via del Corso. Piazza Colonna
is an example of a Renaissance square, commissioned in 1500 by Pope Sixtus V, who placed the column dedicated to Marcus Aurelius at its center. Continuing on the right you'll find Via dei Condotti
(the top destination for luxury shopping) and the iconic Piazza di Spagna
. At the top of the famous Spanish Steps you'll find the Church of Trinità dei Monti
, home to the famous fresco "The Deposition" by Daniele da Volterra. The area is also ideal for a shopping stop or to enjoy a coffee in one of the many bars. Our Classic Rome tour
will take you through this itinerary, enriched by many other spots and accompanied by the interesting explanations of the guide.
