Small Group Rome Evening Stroll

Sightseeing

Looking for the perfect way to kick-start your stay in the Eternal City? This guided walking tour of Rome gives you the chance to immerse yourself right into the Italian culture – as well as millennia of mind-blowing history!
At dusk, your guide will meet you at the spectacular Spanish Steps. Ever since its inauguration in 1725, this 138-step long flight of marble stairs has been the heart of Roman cultural life. During the 1700s and 1800s the steps served as a favorite hang-out for writers, snobs and bohemians alike (including some very notable names such as Lord Byron, John Keats and the notorious ladies’ man, Casanova). In more recent decades, the breathtaking location has been immortalized on the silver screen in films like Roman Holiday and The Talented Mr. Ripley.
As you delve into the maze of the tiny alleyways, majestic squares, and well-hidden courtyards that make up Rome’s historic center, your lively cicerone will breathe life into an enthralling history which stretches back more than 2000 years. When hearing the stupefying tales of the historical events that transpired on this very ground, you will soon realize that this beautiful city holds more than meets the eye – it’s an outdoor museum, where every cobblestone has its own captivating story to tell.
Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure your safe return to Rome – and learn why its witty creator placed a vase on the right hand side to block the view from a neighboring barbershop. Get the inside scoop on the construction of the city’s oldest temple – the Pantheon – and then head to Piazza Navona to unlock the hidden symbolism Bernini chiseled into his Four River Fountain (in which Tom Hanks took a reluctant dip in Angels and Demons!).
Dulcis in fundo, last but not least, your guide will unveil our best haunt for all Italians’ favorite guilty pleasure – gelato! There are hundreds of well-renowned gelato shops in the Eternal City, but after years of extensive research (it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it!) we can guarantee that this is the “crème de la crème” of Roman “gelaterias” and the cherry on top of our evening together. Try their fruit flavors for a refreshing, melt-in-your-mouth indulgence!
