Explore the labyrinth of narrow streets and wide piazzas of central Rome with your local guide. Discover a lively hub of Roman life at the Campo dei Fiori marketplace (Monday to Saturday mornings) before the spectacle of the Piazza Navona opens before you. This stunning oval-shaped space was once a Roman athletics track. Today it is flanked by cafés and restaurants enjoying views of its centrepiece, Bernini’s famous Quattro Fiumi fountain. A short stroll away is the Pantheon, the best-preserved Roman monument in the city. Your guide then leads you across the Via del Corso to the world-famous Trevi Fountain. Be sure to throw in a coin to ensure your return to Rome! Afterwards, climb to the top of the famous Spanish Steps for stunning views over the hills and dome of St Peter’s. Following lunch at leisure, step into ancient Rome at the imposing Colosseum, commissioned by Emperor Vespasian. The stadium accommodated up to 50,000 spectators who came to view the gladiatorial tournaments. Adjacent is the Arc of Constantine, dating from 315 AD. Next, discover the excavations of the vast Roman Forum, where remains of temples, streetscapes, and palaces can be appreciated up close. Finally, discover the Palatine Hill, inhabited since the ninth century BC; archaeologists believe this to be the place where Romulus, founder of Rome, lived.
