Plazas and Fountains of Rome Walking Tour
Discover a part of Rome that other tour companies ignore on this 2-hour walking tour.
Walk along the Quirinale, one of the seven hills of Rome and along the way discover why Moses has horns. Experience the divine at Cornaro Chapel, the masterpiece of Gian Lorenzo Bernini with its controversial yet magnificent centrepiece the Ecstasy of St Teresa.
Follow your guide along the Via XX Settembre and learn how the street got its name and why that day is celebrated in Rome to this day.
See the crossroads with four fountains and then explore the amazing church designed by Francesco Borromini with its undulating facade and beautiful, visually deceptive interior. We challenge you to find a straight line in the building.
Pause to enjoy the Gardens of Sant’andrea al Quirinale with its bronze sculpture commemorating two hundred years of the Carabinieri before walking alongside the Palazzo Quirinale, the official home of the President of Italy. We then arrive at the Piazza Quirinale with its panoramic view over the city.
Turning away from that wonderful view, hear the story of the Egyptian obelisk that was originally outside the mausoleum of Augustus, the first emperor of Rome.
Finally, plunge into the hustle and bustle of the city as your guide takes you to the most iconic of all the sites of Rome, the Trevi fountain, where your tour ends.
