Tour description provided by Viator

Explore Rome's classical fountains and squares as you take this walking tour to see the city's baroque gems. On this tour, you'll visit some of Rome's most famous historical monuments, including the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Spanish Steps, with a professional guide. Admire gorgeous Piazza Navona, built on the ruins of the Domitian’s Circus and adorned by the Fountain of the Four Rivers, a masterpiece by Gian Lorenzo Bernini realized in 1651. And at the Church of St Louis of the French, see paintings by Caravaggio.

Start your tour at the Spanish Steps, where you'll meet your guide for your walk around Rome's fountains and squares to see sculptures, architecture and paintings from the baroque era.Your tour continues at the world-famous Trevi Fountain. The Trevi Fountain is a magnificent example of baroque art. Its dramatic, natural lines and fantastical creatures embody 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! Next visit the Pantheon (meaning temple of 'all the gods'), 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 with a stop inside the marvelous Church of St Louis of the French (San Luigi dei Francesi), which hosts three masterpieces by Caravaggio. Admire the incredible use of light of the great artist before moving on to your last stop, the magnificent Piazza Navona, known for its two highlights, the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers) by Bernini and Sant'Agnese in Agone church by Borromini.
If you love Caravaggio and Bernini, you cannot miss this tour.
