``We get bored sometimes in Rome on the second month of stay, but never the sixth, but if you remain until the twelfth, you get seized by the idea of settling there``, Stendhal

Our private tour of Downtown Rome will ensure an intimate and personalized experience, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and learn about the city’s fascinating past.
You’ll start the Downtown Rome tour from the famous Piazza Venezia and its imposing Vittoriano, the monument to king Victor Emmanuel and symbol of Italy’s unification. Then, we’ll climb Capitoline Hill where you will see the square designed by Michelangelo and enjoy a beautiful view of the Roman Forum.
After this first part, we’ll proceed onto Via del Corso: today this is mainly a commercial street lined up by some 18th palaces along with shops, but it was originally the urban stretch of an ancient roman road – the Via Flaminia – opened during the 3rd century B.C. Until the late 19th century, it was also used as one of the venues for the celebration of the Roman Carnival.
This tour is designed for those who want to get the most out of their time in Rome and hit all of the main attractions in central Rome. As a matter of fact, we’ll stop to admire the Trevi Fountain, the most popular of Rome’s fountains, to toss a coin in order to come back to Rome.
The tour includes also a visit to some churches, such as the Church of Saint Ignatius. This church is famous for its illusionistic dome and ceiling painted at the end of the 1600s. On the way, we will stop at Piazza di Pietra where you will be able to look the remains of the temple built for the emperor Hadrian incorporated in the modern Chamber of Commerce.
The Downtown Rome tour includes a visit to the Pantheon, the best-preserved of all Roman temples, with its amazing concrete dome, still standing after almost 2,000 years.
