Human Voice


Discover the streets and iconic piazzas of Rome with an immersive audio tour, downloadable on your phone. 

First, you’ll make a stop at the Altar of the Fatherland to pay your respects to Italy’s unknown soldier and from there you’ll set out on a magical stroll. Surely, there’s no way to leave Rome without a visit to the iconic Fontana di Trevi! This pearl of the Roman Baroque era is full of water and cinematic memories. Simply, toss a coin and immerse yourself in the Italian Dolce Vita!

As you continue your walk, you’ll discover the Pantheon of Rome, a stunning feat of ancient engineering. Here, you’ll follow your audio guide inside the enormous temple to learn about its bizarre legends before you head to the Church of St. Louis. This is where a surprise is waiting for you! Three Caravaggio masterpieces will cast their spell on you if you just drop some change to light them up! Weaving through a charming medley of Baroque art, stunning fountains, gelatos, and bustling city life, your tour, eventually, culminates in Piazza Navona. What’s more to ask for?
