What you'll do

Discover Rome by night with a local historian expert & archaeologist.

With the arrival of the Renaissance in Rome during the 1400s and the return of the Papal court, Rome is reborn. The aqueducts were to be rebuilt and their terminuses celebrated with grand sculptural groups and mesmerizing piazzas.

Join us as we explore Renaissance and Baroque Rome. From the great palaces to the beautiful Baroque piazzas and fountains to the great rivalries of artists such as Bernini and Borromini, to lovestruck Popes, scandalous courtesans, and everything in between.
Our journey begins at the Bernini’s Triton fountain in Piazza Barberini before we head to the Spanish steps and then onto the most famous fountain in the world – The Trevi fountain, whose history spans back all the way to Augustus and his right-hand man Agrippa. After throwing your coins into the fountain to ensure your safe return we head on past a number of beautiful sites, including; The Pantheon (outside only as it is closed in the evening) Piazza Navona, Campo di Fiori and much more

Key sites:
Spanish steps
Trevi Fountain
Pantheon
Piazza Navona and much, much, more.

Luca was our tour guide and he was amazing. Very thoughtful and insightful about the topic in which he took us on. I learned so much on this tour and had a true appreciation for it. Would do more of this based on this experience alone!

Andrea foi muito amável! Estávamos eu e minha filha de 10 anos e ele se preocupou constantemente com o conforto e preferências dela! Sem dúvida não teríamos conhecido ou entendido os lugares sem a ajuda de Andrea!!

It was a nice walk from site to site with a guide! At night there's less crowds, so better pics! We did it on our first night, and it gave us a pretty good footing of where everything is located.

Andrea was lovely! He made our experience so memorable. We laughed all night while learning about the gorgeous city of Roma and it’s history. Highly recommend!

Our guide Andrea was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. We only had six people in our group, which we appreciated as we could chat with the other travelers as we walked around the city. With that being said, we have found that "walking tours" aren't necessarily the best value as you spend quite a bit of time walking and not hearing anything from your guide which was the case with this tour as well.
