Best of Rome: Pantheon, Trevi and more

Rome, Italy

Experience hosted by Simone

3 hours
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English, Italian

What you'll do

We will meet in Campo de' Fiori: a daily Roman market full of life that becomes the night life center after 6.00pm. We'll see Michelangelo's Palazzo Farnese, an imposing building whose history is made of intrigues, corruption and power.
Then we'll enter a hidden gem of Rome, that you would never find without a guide: Palazzo della Cancelleria, first Michelangelo's accomodation place in Rome, built by a cardinal with money won by gambling.
Next stop: Palazzo Braschi, with his amazing "ancient" luxury car on display.
We'll get a wider sight in Piazza Navona, the most beautiful square of Rome, where the genious Bernini erected the so-called Fountain of the Four Rivers, a masterpiece of Baroque art full of political references.
We'll travel through history entering the Pantheon, built 1900 years ago and still in use: the most spectacular and mysterious ancient building of Italy!
Throw a coin in the water of Trevi Fountain and drink fresh water coming from an aqueduct built 2000 years ago at the time of Augustus and still carrying water to Rome.
The tour will end in Piazza di Spagna, where the amazing view of the Spanish Steps will introduce you to the shopping district of Rome.
Other things to note
This is a 3 hours outdoor walking tour: please dress properly according to the season.

My name is Simone and I will be your guide in Rome. Born in the most beautiful city ever, I am professional PhD archaeologist with a good sense of humor (that's what my Mum says) and a great passion for Rome and its history. I travelled all over the world and I honestly would like to have me as a guide in all my trips (ok... my Mum is probably wrong!). Anyway, I guide English speaking "friends" in Rome since 11 years and I always did it with passion and a professional attitude. I will show you Rome through the eyes of a true Roman, to give you a 360° understanding of my city and its people.

Simone is a world-class archeologist. We have a a completely new perspective on the history of Rome from historical facts, to his personal memories, archeological details that make the city so much easier to “read” as a tourist. And because it was just three of us he had ample time to stop for coffee, answer questions, and linger on our terms. Truly magical. We wished we could have booked another tour with him!

Simone was highly knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor and took his time informing us about each location , it’s history and today! He is very personable and he didn’t leave a question unanswered. He showed us on top of it his favorite cafe where we had a delicious espresso! I highly recommend taking a tour with him, he is worth every penny!

This tour was excellent. Simone is incredibly knowledgable about Rome not only because he is born and raised in the city, but also because he has a PhD in Archeology. His knowledge of archeology combined with the Roman history was a unique experience that I don't think could have been found elsewhere. My girlfriend and I love hearing the fine details on history, and Simone knew it all. Simone was also very funny, easy to connect with, and had great information for questions we had about the city. It was an unforgettable experience that I would recommend to anyone looking for a walking tour.

This was the highlight of our time in Rome. Simone is extremely knowledgeable and we came away feeling more connected to Rome than we did after all of our other tours (Vatican, Colusseum, Forum etc). He has a wide wealth of knowledge and the time flew by with him!!! A definite MUST DO when in Rome!
