Join me on this enchanting stroll through the Eternal City, leaving the crowds and the heat behind and soaking in the incredible history and architecture illuminated beautifully at night. From ancient times to the modern day, Romans have always known the importance of the humble square. Therefore, our starting point, the monumental Piazza Navona, feels like the ideal place to begin our tour. Surrounded by rustic cobbled alleyways, our next stop – the towering Pantheon – seems to appear from nowhere. Built by Emperor Hadrian nearly 2000-years-ago, it remains to this day the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. We’ll then make our way to one of Rome’s most romantic spots, the beautiful Trevi Fountain. At night time the whole fountain is lit up beautifully, meaning we will be able to take a photo of you in front of the fountain that will last a lifetime! Then we will walk through Piazza Venezia onto Via Fori Imperiali, where I will explain the forums that surround it. Here we also past Vittorio Emanuele II monument where I am sure you will want a photo! We finish with a view that not many people experience, overlooking the Colosseum illuminated at night. This is where we will part ways, and I will be able to point you in the direction of some fantastic restaurants in the area. This experience can be up to 20 people Message me if you'd rather do this in the day
I’m a foodie, a sports-fan and a history-buff from England. I first visited Rome whilst interrailing through Europe in the summer before I went to university - and instantly fell in love. It was then that I was introduced to the tourism industry, and I knew straight away that it was what I wanted to do in the future. I went back to England and studied at Bournemouth University where I graduated with a Business and Economics degree. During my time there I’d return to Rome during Easter and Summer to work in tourism, and to continue my studies of this wonderful, special city. In June 2019 Colin, Russ and I launched Carpe Diem Rome, which has been an amazing, life-changing experience for me - and I’d love for you to join me and be part of it!
