Tour description provided by Viator

Explore Rome's classical squares and fountains as you take this morning walking tour. On this tour you'll discover St Peter’s Basilica, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain as you explore Rome’s most famous historical monuments with a professional guide. Visit the gorgeous Piazza Navona built on the ruins of the Domitian’s Circus adorned by the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers, masterpiece by Gian Lorenzo Bernini realized in 1651.

Visit the Pantheon (meaning "Temple of all the Gods"), a building in Rome which was originally built as a temple to the seven deities in the state religion of Ancient Rome. The Pantheon is the biggest brick dome in the history of architecture and is considered the forerunner of all modern places of worship. It is the most copied and imitated of all ancient works.

Your tour continues at the world-famous Trevi Fountain. The Trevi Fountain is a magnificent example of Baroque art. Its dramatic, natural lines and fantasy creatures embodies movement and inspire a sense of triumph. As your guide will tell you, tradition says that if you throw a coin over your shoulder into the fountain, then you will eventually return to Rome. Toss in a penny and cross your fingers!

Visit St Peter's Basilica, with its instantly recognizable dome! Step inside with your priority skip-the-line entrance tickets and gaze in wonder at its beautiful architecture and mosaics, including Michelangelo's masterpiece, La Pietà. Rich in fascinating history, St Peters Basilica is said to stand on the ground where St Peter the Apostle was buried.

Please note: Rome's Trevi Fountain is currently under restoration until late 2015. A walkway above the central portion of the fountain will allow you to catch a glimpse of the ongoing work. Water will be drained during the process, but you'll still be able to cast your coins into the fountain for luck.
