Aperitivo and walking tour by night *w/Transportation included*
How to avoid the Roman summer heat ? It is easy. . just have a walk by night. We will start our downtown highlights tour with a typical italian APERITIVO; I suggest a prosecco or a spritz together with a good selection of ham and cheese (many kinds of regional slow food). You'll enjoy the tour better on a full stomach! Then as we say in Italian "andiamo", so ready to go exploring Rome. We will visit mostly the best city center highlights; Rome is really an open-air museum, with historical evidence and remains from Roman times to the present day. There's something for everyone: Roman ruins and monuments, fascinating fountains, Baroque masterpieces, famous "Piazza" (or Square), narrow medieval streets along with Renaissance Avenue.
We will start in Via del Governo Vecchio area with the Aperitivo in a nice Enoteca (Winehouse) known for its slow food products. The place is close to Piazza Navona, an highly significant example of Baroque style, famous for "The Four Rivers Fountain" done by G. L. Bernini in mid 17 sec. Then we will visit another famous Piazza (Square), the one known for the biggest ancient Roman building survived in Rome, the Pantheon. Then passing through the charming rococò Piazza San Ignazio, for getting to Piazza di Pietra characterized by an ancient Roman temple reused in a modern building. Again a Piazza (Piazza Colonna) named after the ancient Roman column of Marcus Aurelius (2nd AD). Crossing Via del Corso, we will get to the unmissable Trevi Fountain, also for celebrate the tradition of throwing a coins inside of it as a good wish. In the end, we will be at the Spanish Steps.
