Ancient city

Heart of Rome

From the Spanish Steps, to the spectacular Trevi Fountain (even if  it is partially covered by scaffolding due to a restoration), stop for a coffe, as important as wine in Rome and maybe more, visit the Church of Saint Ignatius to admire  the famous “fake dome”, over to Campo dei Fiori to grab a slice of pizza on the go, or to enjoy a good glass of vine.

Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere

From the Capitoline hill, pass by the Theatre of Marcellus and visit the area where the Jewish Ghetto used to be  crossing the Island in the Tiber River, a calm oasis in the center of the city, reach Trastevere, a very picturesque neighborhood famous for its narrow and irregular streets and beautiful churches, but above all the ideal place for an aperitivo or gourmet snack.

Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Castel Sant’Angelo

From the Pantheon, the best preserved monument of the ancient city, you’ll see Piazza Navona, a great example of continuity between Rome’s past and its present , with the ruins of the Stadium. Walk along the elegant Via dei Coronari, full of delicious sweet pastries and cafès, and reach  Castel Sant’Angelo, built as an imperial  tomb and later turned into a fortress strategic  for the popes.

Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica

The itinerary can include   a section of the archeological museum, with famous ancient Roman statues, the three main galleries, the so-called Raffaello rooms (crowd permitting), Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica (Basilica schedule permitting).
