Rome is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque cities in the world to explore. Join me on an enchanting stroll through the city centre as we visit some of the major sights that you really shouldn’t miss, plus some of my off-the-beaten-track spots. My route is carefully curated and I make sure to take characteristic little back alleys that few venture down. We meet at the base of Trajan’s Column, next to the Venice Square (Piazza Venezia), in the real heart of the Eternal city. After getting to know each other, I will begin to explain the ancient Imperial Forum, the unification of Italy and the rebirth of Rome during the Renaissance. The Trevi Fountain attracts millions of visitors every year and with me you will find out why! Admire its beauty as I give you the full story behind the fountain and we get to the bottom of the coin-throwing tradition. The next stop will be in Piazza della Rotunda, the location of the world-famous Pantheon. Experience this most important of Rome’s pagan temples and discover its dynamic uses over 2000 years! We save the best till last: Piazza Navona, which is by far the most elaborate of Rome’s squares. Absorb the ambiance as we get into the rivalry between the artists whose works have defined the beauty of this square. We finish near some of the best bars and eateries in Rome! On Sunday's we don't go inside the Pantheon, it is closed!
I’m a coffee, gelato and fitness lover from the UK. I’ve been working in Rome since 2015, when I stumbled across the city with Harry on our interrail trip. The rustic alleyways, warm summer nights and incredible food had me hooked - I knew I had to stay here. I began studying local history straight away, and graduated into working as a tour guide in 2016. It feels crazy to say that was four years ago - it’s flown by. I’ve found that teaching others through tour-guiding has actually taught me a lot about myself - which makes it a really enjoyable, fascinating job. When I take my guide badge off a few things you might find me doing is running, muay thai kickboxing, watching sunsets, scuba-diving, meeting new people and experiencing new things. Lets seize the day and explore Rome together. Click on my photo to see all my experiences.
Trajan's Forum - The most elaborate of the Roman forums and some say the first shopping mall in the world. Piazza Venezia - The Venetian square. The most central point in Rome. Trevi Fountain - The most famous of Rome's Baroque fountains. Pantheon - Pagan temple and later a Church. The largest unsupported Dome in the world. Piazza Navona - Home to an ancient stadium and the Pamphilli family. The most impressive square in Rome.
