Considered one of Rome’s most beautiful squares, with its church and the three amazing fountains - the Fountain of the Moor, the Fountain of Neptune and, in the middle, the Fountain of the Four Rivers - it displays the genius of Bernini, Borromini and Giacomo della Porta. The Fountain of the Four Rivers, which is considered Bernini’s masterpiece, consists of four figures, each representing a river, from the four continent known by those times: Nile (Africa), Ganges (China), Danube (Europe) and Rio della Plata (The Americas). Constructed between 1647 and 1651, the design was first commissioned to Borromini, but was later taken over by Bernini. Right across the middle fountain, you can find the impressive Sant’Agnese in Agone Church, designed by Borromini and dedicated to the young Christian virgin Agnese, who was executed at the site of the church because of her beliefs.

Stop At: Pantheon, Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome Italy
The tour will then continue with a visit to the Pantheon. Even today, almost 2000 years after its construction, the Pantheon is a remarkable building to see. The spectacular design, proportions, elegance and harmony are a striking reminder of the architecture of the great Roman Empire. When Michelangelo saw this wonder for the first time he said that it looks more like the work of angels, not humans.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Rome Italy
With your guide, you will walk towards the Trevi Fountain. Located in the Quirinale district of Rome, the Trevi Fountain is known as one of the most stunning fountains in the world. It is a fantastic work of art that is much more than a mere sculpture. This triumphant example of Baroque art with its soft, natural lines and fantasy creatures embodies movement as the soul of the world. In this creation, the architecture itself seems to come alive with the current of the revitalising waters. This work of art is so famous that even cinema has commemorated it on more than one occasion. Everyone remembers the scene in the renowned Italian film, "La Dolce Vita" by Fellini: on a quiet night in an almost unreal Rome, an alluring Anita Ekberg jumps into the Trevi Fountain with her clothes on and invites Marcello Mastroianni to join her. There is also another curious tradition regarding the Trevi Fountain: it is said that if you throw a coin over your shoulder into the water, you will be sure to return to Rome. An estimated 3,000 euros in coins are thrown into the fountain every day.
Don't miss this true wonder, a jewel of water and stone!
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Piazza di Spagna, Rome Italy
You will proceede to the Spanish Steps, one of the must-see places when in Rome and a great example of Roman Baroque Style. With its irregular butterfly design, the beautiful “Scalina Spagna” is a great place to just sit down, enjoy the atmosphere and views of the Eternal City. The Spanish Steps are a wide irregular gathering place consisted of 138 steps placed in a mix of curves, straight flights, vistas and terraces. They connect the lower Piazza di Spagna with the upper piazza Trinità dei Monti tha, with its beautiful twin tower church, dominates the skyline. At the lower end of the stairs, you can find an early baroque fountain called Fontana della Barcaccia, or “Fountain of the Old Boat”. It was creatided by Pietro Bernini, a member of the renowned artist family Bernini and father of famous Baroque artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The fountain has the form of a sinking ship and it is said to be based upon a folk legend according to which a fishing boat was carried all the way to this exact spot during a massive flood of the Tiber River in the 16th century. The design with the sinking boat also helped Bernini to overcome a technical problem, due to low water pressure.
