We have mapped a unique stroll through some of the most splendid piazzas of the Eternal City. Departing from the oldest residential area of Rome – Rione Monti – we will guide you to the majestic Piazza Quirinale; the seat of the Roman elite throughout the ages. We then continue to Trajan’s Forum – the site of the world’s first shopping mall. We then go on to see the best of the Renaissance; Michelangelo’s design of the glorious Piazza Campidoglio. Nearby, we find the Medieval Palazzo Venezia – the central hub of Rome – facing the Unification Monument of Vittorio Emanuele II. We conclude our Ultimate Night Walk at the famous Piazza Colonna, the seat of the government of Italy. We wind down by offering you a complimentary drink at the nearby Highlander Pub. In a couple of hours you will become acquainted with some of the most incredible institutional palaces, buildings, fountains and monuments of Rome.
You will learn about the urban development of the historical centre, compiled with touches from different epochs dating back from Antiquity, going through to Medieval, culminating with Renaissance, Baroque, Eclecticism and concluding with upgrades from more modern times. We look at the impact of the Popes and the wealthy noble families on the current architectural scenery of the Italian Capital. The exceptional designs of Michelangelo, Domenico Fontana, Giacomo della Porta and their superbly talented teams of maestros hired by the Vatican and the aristocracy of Rome.
