Enjoy the usual and the hidden jems of the Eternal City: get the best in a few hours
My cultural background is mostly based on History and History of Music, which I like to share with my guests. Due to my expertise as a violinist and historian, during the walk we will discover not only the "must-be-seen" highlights of Rome such as Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, the Old Jewish Ghetto, the Coloseum (outside), Trastevere, the Gianicolo Hill, the Pantheon (inside), Campo dei Fiori, St. Angel Castle and the area of the Vatican (St' Peter's), but also some other sites important for the Roman Musical experience, mostly connected to Arcangelo Corelli and the "Parties" in Cristine of Sweden Palace who was the patron of musicians in the Baroque time. The tour will give you a possibility to try to feel and see the most enchanting angles of Roman past and present.
Upon request the guests can attend and enjoy a private Roman Baroque Music Violin Concert (not included).
