Itinerary

The Spanish Steps and the Piazza di Spagna are at the heart of the most elegant and exclusive area of Rome and lead to the famous shopper’s paradise, Via Condotti, and the surrounding streets with their cafes, restaurants and boutiques, carrying the most eminent brands in international fashion

The Viale della Trinità dei Monti at the top of the Spanish Steps leads to the Pincio. Half way along the road on the right is the Villa Medici, which has one of the city's best views. The palazzo was built for Cardinal Ricci da Montepulciano in 1540.

After admiring its layout from the Pincio terrace, which offers one of Rome's finest panoramas, descend the ramps and stairs to Piazza del Popolo and Porta del Popolo. Via di Ripetta, the most westerly of the three streets fans out from Piazza del Popolo and you will take the Via Corso in the center.

From here you will cycle to Piazza Venezia. The piazza takes its name from Palazzo Venezia the oldest example of a Renaissance palazzo ,which lies on the western side of the Piazza. This impressive building was constructed in the fifteenth century by Pope Paul II and used as a papal palace and in 1564 it was shared by the Venetian embassy. On the South side dominating the whole piazza, stands the monument to King Victor Emmanuel II and Italian unification inaugurated in 1911.

Built by the emperors Vespasian and his son Titus and given as a gift to the Roman citizens, the Colosseum was finished in 80AD and inaugurated with 100 days of games. 60-70,000 spectators could enter through 80 arches and after spending the entire day there, could leave in under 20 minutes. An architectural marvel of antiquity, the Flavian Amphitheatre is the largest structure for entertainment ever built by the Romans for gladiator fights, hunting simulations involving ferocious and exotic animals and executions. It became known as the colosseum because of an enormous bronze statue of Nero which in the second century A.D. was placed near by the monument.

The Roman Forum (Forum Romanum), a marshy ground between the Palatine and Capitoline Hills became the central area around which ancient Rome developed, in which commerce, business, trading and the administration of justice, elections were held, the Senate assembled and triumphal processions took place.

Piazza Navona is one of the most spectacular squares of Baroque Rome. This piazza is exceptionally long and owes its shape to the ruins that formed it. Under the buildings that surround Piazza Navona are the remains of the Circus Domitianus, built in the 1st century AD for sports competitions, and the remains of which are still visible beneath the present street level in Piazza di Tor Sanguigna.

Here you can stop for an amazing ice cream!

One of the most impressive architectural masterpieces of all times, the Pantheon current building was built by the Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD as a temple dedicated to the twelve Olympian gods.

The Fontana di Trevi or Trevi Fountain is the most famous and arguably the most beautiful fountain in all of Rome. This impressive monument dominates the small Trevi square located in the Quirinale district.
