A guided tour to discover the main squares of Rome
Your adventure will begin at Campo de' Fiori, which literally translates as "field of flowers," hinting at its past. This characteristic Roman square is home to a delightful open-air market. Moving on, we'll marvel at Piazza Farnese, a charming square whose name was borrowed from the imposing Farnese Palace.
Next, feast your eyes on a mind-boggling optical illusion of architecture! A few steps away is another palace, Palazzo Spada. It is a prime example of "forced perspective" an intriguing technique invented by the famous architect Borromini. Step into the palace's courtyard, a real-life optical illusion - while its gallery is only 8 meters long, diminishing rows of columns and rising floor make it seems like it is a full 37 meters long.
Visit Navona Square and the Pantheon
Moving on, we'll head to Piazza Navona, a world-famous city square whose perimeters once held the ancient stadium of Domitian. After enjoying this plaza, we'll proceed to Piazza della Rotonda, ten minutes away.
This square houses the magnificent Pantheon, one of Ancient Rome's finest architectural achievements and a temple to the ancient gods. We'll enter this Roman icon for an inside tour, during which your guide will reveal its fascinating history and architectural secrets.
Admire the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps
From Piazza della Rotonda we'll walk to Piazza Colonna, the center of Italian political life which contains Palazzo Chigi, the seat of Italy's Prime Minister. From here, it is a short, five-minute trek to the Trevi Fountain. Don't forget to toss a coin into this famous fountain and make a wish! Finally, we'll arrive at the Piazza di Spagna, or the Spanish Steps, a traditional meeting place for travelers from all corners of the world.
After the tour, you can stroll along Via Condotti, a paradise for the fashion-forward shopper, or relax in one of the area's tranquil cafes.
