What awaits you
Turning to the origins So let's start with the place where Rome was born. I will tell you about the first king and those amazing events that preceded the emergence of the future huge empire. You will probably be surprised to meet "acquaintances" from Greece. Inspect antique forum ruins and get in touch with the history of a monumental handsome man Colosseum… Learn about the significant era of the republic and the spears of the god of war Mars, as well as hear stories about legendary emperors, see the place from which Nero watched the famous fire, and study the symbolism of another Roman business card - the abbreviation SPQR
Other iconic places you can't imagine Rome without On the most famous of the seven Roman hills - Capitol - I will talk about pagan and Christian monuments, the architecture of the great Michelangelo and the world's first public museum. A little later, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the treasury of coins. Trevi fountain… You will also see the ancient temple of all the gods, majestic and unflappable Pantheon… You will visit "the most important of all the main and the most central of all the central ones" square of Navona, where you will learn about its unusual shape, famous fountains and enjoy the atmosphere of "dolce vita" reigning there. And then take a walk through Field of Mars and you will reach People's Square, having made an excursion through almost 3000 years of history of the Eternal City, from its first king to the people
Lesser known gems of Rome In addition to the main checkpoints, you will visit Circus, the largest racetrack in ancient Rome. You will visit square of Venice with its snow-white Altar of the Fatherland and Mussolini's balcony. You will see Temple of the Divine Hadrian and learn the "secret" of the unapproachable Castel Sant'Angelo… Also in the program is a colossal Mausoleum of Augustus, ancient altar Altar of peace and other, less famous, but interesting historical monuments, among which, for example, one of the speaking statues of Rome
Friendly approach and Roman life hacks Walking with me is always a comfortable pace and informal communication. Of course, Rome is not the city that can be recognized in a day, but I tried to collect in the program the brightest, most interesting and necessary for the first acquaintance with the Eternal City. In addition, I will be happy to advise you on how to plan your future days, what else is worth visiting, where to find the best Italian ice cream, coffee and tiramisu in the world, where you can eat deliciously and inexpensively in the center. I'll also open a couple of secret places. And if after a walk you fall in love with Rome as much as I do - my task is completed!
