Rome could be considered the historical capital of the world. No city equals the history of the Eternal City: one of the roots of western civilization, it has everything to offer, from ancient to new. With its 2700 years of existence, Rome has long reigned as Caput Mundi, the Capital of the World. Its monumental buildings are reminiscent of the era when emperors like Julius Cesar, Nero and Trajan ruled the Roman Empire. But not all is ancient in Rome. Much of its attractiveness is due to the Renaissance, when new squares such as the Piazza del Campidoglio were done and new buildings were constructed including the world’s largest church, Saint Peter’s Basilica. On this walking tour we will take you to get a better look into Rome’s streets and cobblestone alleys, over through churches, romantic squares, and the famous fountains of Rome. Some of the sites will include the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and the beautiful Piazza Navona with Bernini’s four Rivers Fountain.
