You will pass by countless attractions but 12 will be the main key points of the tour. Starting from Piazza della Repubblica: Quirinale, Fontana di Trevi, Trinità dei Monti, Piazza del Popolo, Saint Peter Square, Gianicolo, Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto, Pantheon, Piazza Venezia, Colosseum and Santa Maria Maggiore, for a total of 25 km.


But this is not only a “on the road” tour: three of the above stops will include time to walk and explore, and one of them will also include a tasty break. First stop at the Pantheon: just before entering inside the ancient temple now converted into a church and starting the visit, you will taste a typical Italian breakfast; then, during the second stop, you will have the chance to make a wish throwing the coin in the water of the Trevi Fountain (scenario of the unforgettable scene of the movie La dolce vita). And then, the final stop at the Gianicolo, one of the 7 hills of Rome, the one with the most breathtaking view on the city skyline.
