Take a break from the blood, gore and glory of Ancient Rome and indulge in some of the city’s finer treats on this walking tour including the best gelato in Rome! Your expert guide will take you from the glory days of the Roman Empire through to the sparkling inspiration of the Renaissance Period and back again, exploring how Rome’s humble piazza’s – and the churches, fountains and statues that inhabit them – have played their part in cultivating the city’s rich and sprawling history.
Begin your experience in the monumental Piazza Venezia and then make your way to one of Rome’s most romantic spots, the Trevi Fountain. A pinnacle of Baroque architecture, it’s truly a joy to behold and it’s made even more of a joy by the delicious artisan gelato you’ll enjoy while there. Produced with locally-sourced ingredients, this is some of the most mouth-wateringly smooth, rich and creamy ice cream you’re ever likely to taste.
Surrounded by rustic cobbled alleyways, your next stop, the towering Pantheon, seems to appear from nowhere. Built by Emperor Hadrian nearly 2000-years-ago, it remains to this day the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. Finish the tour at Piazza Navona, which, surrounded by bustling bars and restaurants, is a perfect launchpad for you to go on and enjoy lunch, dinner or a drink.
