Itinerary
Trevi Fountain
Day 1 (4 hours) The tour starts with a visit to Ancient Rome’s largest amphitheatre, the Colosseum.  You meet your guide outside and with your reserved tickets go straight inside to explore this magnificent arena. You then go outside once more to see the Arch of Constantine and the Roman Forum.  The Forum was the Empire’s political, religious and social hub and had many wonderful buildings and monuments. A walk up the Sacred Way brings you to Capitoline Hill and the Vittoriano, one of modern Italy’s most beautiful monuments.  The tour continues with a visit to the Trevi Fountain, scene of many a famous movie including Fellini’s La Dolce Vita.  Follow legend by throwing a coin in the fountain and making a wish that some day you will return to Rome! Next on the tour you will see the Parliament Building, the Palace of the Council of Ministers and the Column of Marcus Aurelius.  These magnificent buildings are located in the Government District. Close by is the historic Temple of Hadrian, built by the Emperor Antonius Pius in honour of his predecessor. A walk down a narrow avenue brings you to the Pantheon where you can see the tomb of the architect and painter, Raphael.  A little further, by way of the Ancient Baths of Nero we arrive at Piazza Navona to see Bernini’s wonderful Fountain of the Four Rivers.
