After so much History, today the Full Rome Private Tour offers you one of City's best artistic face for which it is so famous in the world: the Baroque style.
The tour begins in Largo Argentina and quickly you'll reach two peculiar squares in Rome: Piazza Farnese and Campo de' Fiori.
In the first one, you'll visit Palazzo Spada: here the Italian Council of State and the Spada Artworks Gallery have their venues.
Campo de' Fiori, instead, is home to a lively and colorful food market with a remarkable popular atmosphere.
Your next stop needs no introduction: Piazza Navona.
Here you can admire the Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers (the “Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi”) in the center.
Our official chartered guide will give you all the information regarding the history and all the monuments in this square.
Following, Piazza della Rotonda holds the Pantheon. Today, it's a Catholic Basilica (you’ll visit it inside), formerly a temple for the cult of Emperor Augustus.
Your next stop is the Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi), the largest Baroque fountain in the City, and one of the most famous in the world.
Don't forget to throw a coin as a promise of return to Rome.
Finally, admire the Spanish Steps, a monumental stairway of 135 steps, with the Fontana della Barcaccia ("Fountain of the ugly Boat").
Tonight you'll prepare dinner for yourself, thanks to a cooking class with a multilingual professional chef.
A good idea is to start with the choice of ingredients: your chef will take you to visit a Market of Rome and will explain the ingredients to buy.
Once shopping done, hurry up; everybody in the kitchen!
Today, we'll bring you to another side of Rome: the Jewish Ghetto (where the Roman Jews still live) and “Trastevere”, one of the most typical Roman district, with its narrow streets and fragrances.
Behind the Synagogue, you’ll find Via Portico d’Ottavia which owes its name to the ruins of the ancient portico built in the 1st century B.C.
The ghetto presence had a great influence on the typical Roman cuisine.
Here, restaurants and “trattorie” offer you all the most remarkable Jewish specialities.
After touring the Ghetto, you'll reach the Tiberina Island and, then, Trastevere, one of the most famous and ancient quarters of the city. Walk on the winding streets covered with cobblestones overlooked by medieval houses.
As you might already found out, the night is filled with people, both Italian and foreigners, thanks to the wealth of typical Roman restaurants, clubs and pubs for every price range.
Trastevere includes the river plain and the hill of the Janiculum.
Today, it's a more relaxing day. You'll walk in the largest City Garden, Villa Borghese, with its unparalleled Art Gallery, with a unique collection of masterpieces (it absolutely deserves a guided visit).
Extending from the top of the Piazza del Popolo on top of the lookout, to Via Veneto, Villa Borghese (Borghese Gardens), crowned in a kind of green canopy the city of Rome.
Villa Borghese is literally a breath of fresh air for those who visit. There are museums, a theater, a zoo, a lake, an ice skating rink (in winter), spacious areas for rollerblading and skateboarding, numerous statues and fountains, a flora and very diverse fauna.
Don't forget to take pictures from the Pincio belvedere, where there's a broad viewpoint, a fantastic view of Piazza del Popolo and the Prati district.
Next stop: Via Veneto, the most popular, stylish and expensive streets in Rome.
In the 50's and 60's, Via Veneto has gained international fame as the center of the “Dolce Vita” (the sweet life): its bars and restaurants attracted Hollywood stars and jet-setters, like Audrey Hepburn, Anita Ekberg, Anna Magnani, Gary Cooper, Orson Welles, Tennessee Williams, Jean Cocteau and Coco Chanel, and so many others.
Dinner in a famous Roman Restaurant.
It's time to visit some real gems outside Rome, in an intense but fulfilling tour.
The first stop is Villa d'Este in Tivoli, an Italian Renaissance masterpiece with an unforgettable garden, included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.
In 2016, Villa d’Este was the tenth most visited Italian site, with approx 452,000 visitors.
While the interiors are particularly interesting, the Villa's real strength is outside: the spectacular garden is the Pirro Ligorio's genius result.
You will see terraces and slopes, with a central longitudinal axis and five major transverse axes, masterfully connecting the different garden slopes.
Your second stop in Tivoli, another historical masterpiece: the Hadrian's Villa. Villa Adriana was an Imperial suburban residence built in the II century.
Emperor Hadrian (76-138 A.D.) commissioned it near Tivoli (ancient Tibur), today metropolitan city of Rome Capital.
Villa Adriana was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO, in 1999.
We believe you agree with us: how much beauty does our Full Rome Private Holidays offers to our participants.
Today, you'll visit the church of San Nicola in Carcere (St. Nicholas in Prison), built upon an ancient Roman temple you still can spot into the side walls of the church.
What sets these ruins apart from any others in Rome, is that they are probably the most ancient remainings in the City.
From the crypt under the altar, down to the underground level, you’ll retrace the beaten path of the Romans, on their daily comings and goings.
Your next hidden Rome stop is the Piazza di Pietra (Square of Stone), and admire the Hadrian Temple, now incorporated into a later building.
Here, you’ll visit the St. Mary in Via Lata church, where you will enter the underground area.
Our official guide will show you some very well preserved and rare frescoes.
The final stop is the Trevi Fountain, that you might already visited in the previous tour.
Here, you can visit the underground archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius – the City of Water a block (insula, in Latin) made of two separate buildings.
This housing complex was subsequently transformed, around the mid-IV century, in a luxurious manor house (domus, in Latin).
Tonight, for dinner, you’ll have an invitation at the Opera!
Taste the Italian traditional cuisine, while listening to some of the most famous Opera Arias, with the voices of professional singers from the Rome Opera House.
Today, you’ll climb to the Janiculum, one of the highest hills of Rome, although not included into the historical seven hills forming the oldest nucleus of the “Eternal City”.
The Janiculum hill is famous for offering one of the most astonishing views of Rome: enjoy breathtaking views of churches, palaces and monuments, with the Tiber river with her curves in the middle.
One of the most famous place on the Janiculum hill is the monumental fountain.
Better known as the “Fontanone” (Big Fountain), the recently Oscar awarded movie “La Grande Bellezza” (The Great Beauty) immortalized it.
Next stop is the “Giardino degli Aranci” (the Garden of Orange trees), located on the Aventine Hill, which offers another fantastic view of the city.
The garden is named because of the many bitter orange trees you can admire here.
After the Janiculum tour, discover the charm of Rome aboard a colorful iconic tiny Fiat 500 classic car, or the famous Vespa scooter.
During the tour, you will stop for a glass of Prosecco DOC, or a cappuccino, or a rich Italian “gelato”.
At the end of the tour, your tour leader will drop you off at the hotel or, if you prefer, wherever you believe more convenient to you.
Today, let’s go outside Rome once again, to visit the Castelli Romani.
Located a short distance on the South-East of Rome, it offers two incredible lakes in volcanic craters: Lake Nemi and Lake Albano.
Once a favorite destination for clean air, today visitors look for a more enjoying atmosphere and events.
In Ariccia, you can taste local food specialities, including excellent wine, at a very reasonable price, at the typical “fraschette”.
If you travel in the right period, you can participate in the Grape Festival in Marino and the Flower Festival in Genzano. These, and other events, attract more and more visitors from the world, to the Castelli Romani.
Some of the wines from this area are very popular throughout the world.
Therefore, you’ll visit a famous wine estate in the area. Here you can taste and buy bottles of famous wines like the “Frascati D.O.C.” and “Marino D.O.C.”, two of the five best wines of Lazio, and highly appreciated in the world.
Genzano di Roma and Nemi, your next stops, allow you to sample some of the artisan foods and local wines, while enjoying the fresh air and breathtaking views.
Finally, the scenic Castel Gandolfo, one of the nicest town in Italy with its Lake, an unexpected panorama and its historic sites: here, all Popes, except Pope Francis, used to retreat themselves in the Apostolic Palace, to escape the summer heat of Rome.
